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.

Classes avail­able in Fe­bru­ary and March are as fol­lows:

■ Thurs­day, Feb. 14, 10 a.m. in Fair­born

■ Wed­nes­day, Feb. 27, 10:45 a.m. in Xe­nia

■ Thurs­day, March 14, 10 a.m. in Fair­born

■ Thurs­day, March 14, 5:15 p.m. in Xe­nia

■ Wed­nes­day, March 27, 10:45 a.m. in Xe­nia

Reg­is­tra­tion for all listed classes above is re­quired. Please call the WIC of­fice at 937-374-5642 to get reg­is­tered or to find out more.
