New Family Workshop

What do new parents want most for their new baby?

Nearly all parents will respond that they want a happy, healthy baby.

David Lester and I identified five essential things you can do to help your baby be happy and healthy.

What's funny is that most parents already know these things, but they start to doubt themselves when their baby doesn't respond in the same ways they read or hear about from books or the internet.

The New Family Workshop held the last Wednesday of every month 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM

This workshop is free. Parents and grandparents are welcome. RSVP is required. Please call 255-3300 to register.

This class is for pregnant couples and their families. You may wonder why you need a class for breastfeeding? I developed this class to prepare parents for the first two weeks when so many things happen that many parents quit.

Get the best start whether you're planning a home or hospital birth. This comprehensive class covers beginning breastfeeding, the introduction of solid foods and weaning.

It includes the book "Beginning Breastfeeding" by Donna Bruschi, IBCLC

• How to prepare yourself and your family for breastfeeding (It's not what you think!)

• What skin to skin contact is (And is not!) 

• What a "good latch" is (And is not!)

• How birth practices affect breastfeeding (& what to do if things go wrong)

• Postpartum bonding, suckling & how partners fit into breastfeeding

This 2 hour class is $100 per family.

Partners & Grandparents are welcome & encouraged to attend. 

In addition, you may have questions about:

• Selecting a breast pump, when to start and essential considerations for returning to work.

• How to have a great milk supply, even if your breasts are small, even if you have twins, even if you're worried...

• Pacifiers, safe bottle feeding, how often and how long to feed

• Knowing signs that you NEED help and where to get it, and why it's not the Internet.


This class is taught by Donna Bruschi, IBCLC, an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, La Leche League Leader and owner of New Baby New Paltz. She breastfed her 3 children, including twins. She shares her wisdom of two decades of helping mothers and babies get breastfeeding right for them.

Sleep Solver

luc newborn kickee

You have entered the No-Zone of Zombie Motherhood. Days and Nights are blurred. You, your baby, and your partner have spiraled into a cranky, irritable hell. 

You keep hearing about this magic book or that miraculous system that promises to get your baby to sleep through the night. You keep hearing about all these babies who magically sleep. You have tried cereal, the bedtime routine, no-cry, crying it out, the crib, the family bed, elimination diets, and night weaning. You have drawers full of Woombies, Swaddles and Sleep Sacks. You probably have a backache and big biceps.

You know there has got to be a way that feels right and works but you are feeling hopeless, defensive, angry, ashamed and beyond exhausted. You feel tortured. You don't want your baby to cry, but you don't care anymore.

Sleeping can be a completely natural process, but if you feel tortured, there are probably several things together that need adjusting. There are literally hundreds of things that can contribute to babies not sleeping.

It's not always what you think.
