Class: Hello, Baby

Sibling rivalry.  Jealousy.  Confusion.   How will your young child react when he or she has a new sibling?  How will you keep your family in harmony?

The “Hello, Baby” class is a special program for youngsters anticipating the arrival of a new brother or sister in their family. 

Specifically designed for children between the ages of three and six, the class will help them adjust to their new role as a big brother or sister.  The Child Life Specialist who leads each session uses a variety of techniques to explore each child’s feelings and fears about having a new sibling.

Participants tour the Maternity Department, watch a video, practice diapering their own stuffed animal or doll and learn other basic infant care skills so they can actively participate in the baby’s care.

There is a $5 registration fee for each child, which covers the cost of materials.  One parent must accompany the child, although both parents are encouraged to attend.  Pre-registration is required.  For additional information and to register, call the Education Department at (302) 744-7135 or toll-free at 1-877-453-7107.
