Now that baby can eat solids, this class will teach you:

This class is listed as a couple’s class.  Please feel free to bring another adult with you, whether it’s another adult who lives in your home, a relative, or a friend.  We ask that you find childcare for your child(ren) and experience this class with as little distraction as possible.
