Babies First focuses on helping families learn to care for and better understand their children! The program is for infants and children from ages 0-3 years old.
Babies First helps parents learn about the transition of becoming a parent. Your nurse will help you with any questions you may have about topics ranging from breastfeeding/bottle feeding and sleep routines, to normal physical and mental development. There is so much to learn and you can rest assured that your nurse will be up-to-date on the latest research and things you want to know.
Babies First is a developmental screening program for children at risk of developmental delay due to a variety of risk factors including: premature birth; drug exposed infant during pregnancy; low birth weight; age of the parent/caregiver; low income/ poverty and many other factors. The majority of referrals are from hospitals at the time of birth.
