Firelands Offering Free Parenting Class

Firelands Regional Medical Center will be offering the next Happiest Baby on the Block parenting class on Tuesday, July 29 from 6-8 p.m. at Firelands Regional Medical Center’s South Campus, 1912 Hayes Avenue, Sandusky.

The Happiest Baby on the Block is based on the techniques of world-renowned pediatrician, Dr. Harvey Karp.  Dr. Karp has been featured on Good Morning America, The Dr. Phil Show, ABC World News Tonight, CNN, and numerous national radio programs.

The Happiest Baby program is a national curriculum and is taught by a certified instructor. Among the essential information offered to participants, parents will be taught a step-by-step approach to quickly soothe the fussiest baby.  The methods are designed to increase sleep, parental confidence, and family harmony while decreasing stress, frustration, and exhaustion that many times are present when parents are adjusting to the changes a new baby brings.

Through the generous donation of Firelands Regional Medical Center Auxiliary, this program is free of charge to participants. Register online by visiting the classes and events atfirelands.com or by calling 419-557-7840.  Parents will receive a take-home kit (DVD or VHS, and CD) valued at $40.00.
