Grandparenting Classes Again Held

Corinne Cook, RN, Babysitting Class instructor, will teach the next Grandparenting Class on Saturday, April 6 from 9:30 a.m. until Noon. The class will be held in the hospital’s Large Conference Room.

In these classes, new or soon-to-be grandparents will learn all the new protocols to use when caring for their new grandchild.  Some topics covered will include basic baby care, car seat safety, Tylenol/Ibuprofen dosing charts, home safety, poison control information, infant/child CPR, choking and other emergency medical information as well as tips to support parents such as handling the baby blues and postpartum depression.  Free-will donations will be accepted to cover the costs of the class.

“The rules are always changing when it comes to child care,” states Corinne Cook, RN, class instructor.  “I want to help new grandparents learn the changes that have been made for safety and well-being of infants and children, explaining all the things that have changed since they raised their children.”
