Most new parents or parents-to-be wonder what to do when their new baby has been fed, diapered, burped and played with, but is still crying.
Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital's Family Birth Center nurse Kim Stolte will help new families learn five simple ways to calm crying and help their new baby sleep longer.
The class will be offered on Tuesday, Feb. 15, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. and repeated on Tuesday, March 15, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the hospital's education center.
"This class provides practical tips for parents, grandparents and babysitters of babies, birth to three months, and is highly recommended if you are still pregnant," says Kim Stolte.
The group will watch the video, Happiest Baby on the Block, by pediatrician Harvey Karp, M.D., then discuss and practice the hands-on techniques.
Participants are asked to bring a 36" to 44" square blanket, thin cotton preferred.
Class fee is $5.
