I feel completely prepared to help my daughter with her new baby
full star full star full star full star full star

It’s been about 25 years since I so much as changed a diaper. All the new sleep rules felt intimidating, but now I see how simple and easy it is.

This is a crash course on what is ‘new’ in parenting these days, plus a refresher of the things I haven’t thought about in decades!

I have 4 kids of my own, but this is my first grandbaby. I actually learned a lot more than I expected!

Easy to navigate, and loved how I could rewatch things

I would hate for anything to happen to my grandson on my watch, so I was especially grateful for the CPR and choking demos.

The instructors were fantastic, and were very easy to follow

I wasn’t sure I’d like the online format, but everything was so clear and informative.

I loved the printable cheat sheets so I didn’t have to take notes

I was stressing about not knowing what to do before introducing solid food! And I thought i would go check on TinyHood and I just found the class Solid 101. I’m now very happy to know everything before starting. The courses are very interesting instead of a book
