Bringing Up Boone Babies

Are you raising a newborn, infant or toddler? Do you have questions about feeding a picky eater or calming a fussy baby? Do you want to connect with other parents?

Bringing Up Boone Babies is a monthly support group provided by Boone Family Birthplace. This hour-long session is led by a Boone Family Birthplace nurse. Each month, we offer a short presentation on a different topic, followed by open group discussion.

This support group is free and open to all parents of newborns, infants, and toddlers. No registration is required.

Bring your baby or child with you! (We’ll have a baby scale and someone available to help comfort babies).
