Newborn Care Course Certification

Newborn Care Course Certification is someone who specializes in newborn care. The Newborn Care Course may assist parents in the home the first few weeks or months of baby’s life with parent education, feeding/breastfeeding, basic baby care, and light baby-related housekeeping. It is important to note that a Newborn Care Specialist is not a Nanny and not a Doula and requires special training and education specific to the profession.

Newborn Care Training Course Calendar

Boston Newborn Care Training Course Calendar. Newborn care and postpartum training. Boston Newborn Care will include shadowing/ training for those with no experience and will consider placement with clients for those who meet the job requirements.

To complete the Training Course Calendar you must take all four in person sessions but they do not need to be taken consecutively or in order.  Students can choose a morning or an afternoon session in any of the dates listed on the calendars as long as they complete all four modules.

Once all 4 Training Course Calendar are completed students will then be required to complete the research project before certificates will be distributed and before you could be considered to either shadow or work with a client.

All students will receive a download PDF online training manual, business cards, mentoring opportunities, marketing help and opportunities to work with clients, as they are available.

  • Certificates awarded at the end of the course once the test is completed.
  • These certificates are a credential that can be added to your portfolio.
  • This is not a certification – There is no governing body that has created standards in this field. Any certificate you receive is always just a credential.

If You Do Something Once With Your Newborn

If you do something once with your newborn, prepare to do it for a year. It’s always so hard to try to figure out what works and what doesn’t work when your baby isn’t content. Parents with infants will agree that they will do almost anything to get their newborn baby to sleep and to stop crying.

Seriously; ANYTHING.

A ride in the car, bouncing up and down on an exercise ball, a vibrating chair, the swing, extra loud white noise; the list is endless and sometimes outrageous.

One of the problems is that parents want immediate results; they want a quiet, cooing, sleepy or asleep child before they can move on with their lives, before they can take a breath, brush their teeth, or sleep themselves.

So they of course feed and change diapers and if they are not then met with the milk drunk-like sleepy baby they start with their options. try the ball, nope, not it,

Move to the seat on the washing machine (OK so I’m dating myself, chairs now are battery operated and vibrate, however 24 years ago that wasn’t the case)they swaddle, un-swaddle, crib, rock and play, up, down, whatever it takes.

Finally the baby falls asleep on their chest.

So nobody move!

Mom will lie quietly staring at the still screen on the tv that appears after pausing the on-demand show for too long. The remote is too far away.

No shower, the breakfast dishes that are piled on top of dinner dishes will wait, text with left hand since that’s where the phone is, phone may die, cant plug it in, too far away, trapped.

But! Success! The baby slept. From now on the day is centered around the naps that the baby takes on a person. Overnight newborn sleep will be in the chair, in the living room or the babys nursery.

Two reasonable educated successful adults will agree with the new plan.

Their lives take on a new focus. How to factor in that one of the parents will have to be still so the baby can sleep on them. That’s a habit that will remain until the child decides that a nice soft comfy mattress is better than a lumpy human. For about a year.

Don’t cough, have too much water or have any other children in the mix.I get it, we all do, but, maybe give a more reasonable option a minute before moving on to the next. Amazing how much you still can’t get done without a baby on your chest.
