Having a baby is often a very exciting and occasionally stressful time. One thing not to overlook are the essentials of baby safety.
The "Be Safe, Baby!" class offers expectant parents free classroom car seat education, including how newborns should ride in a car, as well as tips on car seat selection and proper installation.
Other topics include creating a healthy safe sleep environment for your baby and the "period of purple crying" - a phrase to help parents understand that it is perfectly normal for babies to cry often during the first few months of life.
"Be Safe, Baby!" is recommended for parents during the second or third trimester of pregnancy, but can be taken at any time. "Be Safe, Baby!" is supported in part by Kohl's Cares and the Madison Area Safe Kids Coalition.
