Can I bring my baby?
You will probably be able to concentrate better if you leave your baby at home, however if this is not an option, young sleepy babies are welcome! Babies are always welcome at the Baby Boot camp. In fact I am happy to do a weight ceck before or after the session if you arrange that with me in advance.
The parenting workshop is for adults only.
Who can come to the classes?
Classes are not limited to Noe Vally Pediatrics' patients. Anyone is welcome.
They are great for Nannies and Grandparents.
Do you cover CPR in the safety class?
In my 30 years as a pediatric nurse, I am happy to note that only very rarely has a parent in my practice actually needed do CPR. Choking rescue is much more common. Because time is limited during the class, I focus on skills that are more commonly needed. That being said, knowledge is always a good thing, and I certainly recommend that everyone gets certified for CPR.
CPR classes are generally several hours long and a bit more expensive
