In­fant feed­ing classes

Dayton Daily News - - LOCALFOCUS - STAFF RE­PORT

The WIC (Women, In­fants & Chil­dren) pro­gram at Greene County Pub­lic Health has an­nounced the avail­abil­ity of free in­fant feed­ing classes de­signed for preg­nant women. These classes are open to all preg­nant women, not just WIC par­tic­i­pants. If you are try­ing to de­cide how best to feed your new­born when he or she ar­rives, this class will pro­vide you with valu­able in­for­ma­tion to help make the best choice for the health of your baby.

The classes, of­fered monthly at both the Xenia (360 Wil­son Drive) and Fair­born (600 Pierce Drive) WIC of­fices, will cover how to feed your baby, get­ting started with breast­feed­ing, how to know if your baby is get­ting enough to eat, how to make in­fant for­mula, of­fer a bot­tle, and so much more. Morn­ing and late af­ter­noon/evening classes are avail­able, and you only need to reg­is­ter for one class (not a se­ries). The classes are open to preg­nant women and their sup­port peo­ple. Spouses, part­ners, and all other sup­port peo­ple are strongly en­cour­aged to at­tend.

The next avail­able class will be held at 10:45 a.m., Wed­nes­day, Oct. 24, Xenia.

Reg­is­tra­tion is re­quired. Please call the WIC of­fice at 937-3745642 to get reg­is­tered or to find out more.
