New babies bring new challenges, even if you’re an old pro at this parenting thing. Kim Reule, FNP-C and Alzein Pediatrics is here to help get you acquainted – or re-acquainted – with basic care by bringing NEW Baby Basics classes to you each month, for free.

• Birth Plan
• Breast or Bottle Feeding
• Newborn Screening and Possible Cord Blood Banking
She’ll talk about what to expect during your hospital stay, bringing Baby home, and the bare necessities you’ll need for Baby to be comfortable, safe and healthy. Ms. Reule also cover:

As a Certified Lactation Counselor, Ms. Reule will explain the benefits of breastfeeding and help you gain an understanding of the basics of nursing, along with ways to trouble-shoot technique and results if you’re feeling challenged.
You’ll be able to practice, guided by professionals, different ways to hold your infant, healthy diaper changing and proper burping and comfortable nursing/feeding positions. You’ll learn car seat safety, along with general safety, health and first aid guidelines. We’ll discuss vaccinations and typical development milestones
