In-Person Class Details

Nested’s Newborn Care & Infant CPR Certification (NB/CPR) Boot Camp is a comprehensive class that takes you on a journey from the day of discharge through your newborn’s first few months at home. Our emphasis is setting your family up for a smooth transition, promoting a healthy baby, parents and supporting community.

In this class we will:

  • Review “normal” newborn appearance and hospital discharge logistics
  • Learn signs of newborn illness (e.g., jaundice, thrush, colic, cradle cap) and when to call your pediatrician
  • Demonstrate swaddling, holding positions, soothing techniques, bathing and changing diapers
  • Discussion nutrition, formula vs. breastfeeding and breastfeeding tips
  • Learn choking prevention tactics & infant CPR and demonstrate how to resuscitate a specialized CPR non-responsive dolls, and receive American Red Cross CPR certification (starting February 2023)**
  • Learn & practice tips, tricks and techniques for Prenatal Wellness: Pelvic Floor Health, Ergonomics & Exercises from a physical therapist and have access to physical therapy videos to address proper ergonomics to prevent musculoskeletal injury new parents face
  • Discuss the new challenges of a growing family in terms of boundaries with work and family

Ultimately, clients will be armed with a toolkit to strengthen the physical and emotional health of the entire family. This is a perfect class for biological, adoptive or foster parents, friends, caregivers, nannies and grandparents.

We recommend taking this class later in the pregnancy, after 30 weeks – mainly because we review what happens after the baby is delivered and through the first year. We find taking it closer to the due date helps keep this info “fresher” and top of mind.

Note: 1 registration ticket allows for up to 2 people (1 ticket = 2 people) to attend the class and access the course resources. Registration closes two weeks prior to the class date for the CPR certification classes.

Should this portion of the class need to be suspended, once it is determined to be safe to resume doing so, Nested will provide all registered attendees with a COMPLIMENTARY coupon code to register for an in-person CPR Certification (only) class to practice & demonstrate the hands-on skills training portion.
