Nested’s Newborn & Infant Care with 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 the 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
  • 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.

{This course was super informative and I am so glad that my husband and I attended this class together. We are expecting our first baby and did not really know what to expect going into this class, but this course exceeded our expectations and we left there feeling much more confident and prepared. I really like how it was a small group setting, so it felt more personalized and comfortable. The instructors are extremely friendly and engaging, and it's obvious that they truly care about being there to help new parents. I would absolutely recommend this course to all new parents!!
{My experience taking the infant CPR class was phenomenal. Nidhi was such a patient, engaging, knowledgeable and caring instructor. I am blown away at how personalized the instruction was and I walked away feeling really confident with what to do if my baby is ever choking or becomes unresponsive.
{My wife and I were expecting our first child and looking for resources to help us prepare. Nested really helped us learn what to expect and be ready. We also took an infant first aid class that was EXCELLENT. Nidhi went above and beyond to make sure we understood the CPR and choking procedures. That personal attention helped make our pregnancy prep so much more enjoyable and it's something I will always be thankful for. I highly recommend Nested for their expertise and their personal touch.
