Newborn and Infant Care

This training is designed to help new parents as well as infant caregivers. Generally, infants are not placed in out-of-home childcare settings until they are at least 4-6 weeks old; however, child caregivers, especially those in Early Head Start and similar programs, also often work directly with the new parents even before the baby arrives. This training is based on the primary activities of newborns and infants. They sleep, they eat, and they wet and have bowel movements. Safety and disease prevention also are included.
