Having a baby is often a very exciting and occasionally stressful time. One thing not to overlook are the essentials of baby safety.

This free class will offer expectant parents 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 2nd or 3rd trimester of pregnancy, but may be taken at any time. Classes will be 90 minutes in length and offered at various UW Health clinics in Madison.
