Baby Basics

Our medical professionals help our families by providing a special focus on the care of your newborn. At our Baby Basics Pre-Natal Classes, you’ll get a tour of our offices and meet our staff. Your family will learn the proper way to bathe, diaper, feed and care for your baby to ensure you have the knowledge, skills and confidence to take care of your newborn when the Big Day arrives. We’ll talk about what to expect in the hospital and explain what you’ll need to know to provide excellent care for Baby at home.

As Alzein Pediatrics’ certified Lactation Counselor, Kim Reule, MSN, APRN, FNP-C, will help new moms with the breastfeeding experience. Take a Baby Basics Breastfeeding Class, so you’ll know what to expect while breastfeeding, understand the challenges you and Baby may face, and discover methods to make breastfeeding as comfortable and beneficial as possible – for both of you. We want to help you make breastfeeding a success!

After Baby is born, Kim and Alzein professionals are here to help Baby grow! We are just a phone call away to answer questions and help you solve problems. We will help you determine what behavior, eating and sleeping patterns are “normal” and what merits an urgent appointment in our offices.

We know breastfeeding is not always simple; it’s often confusing, frustrating and painful. Now you have Kim and Baby Basics Breastfeeding Support when you and Baby need help with latching on or staying latched, proper positioning for optimum comfort and feeding, painful nursing from sore or cracked nipples, breast engorgement, blocked milk ducts, mastitis or abscess, thrush and low milk production.
