This weekly informal group is for parents and babies from birth to one year. This group meets every Wednesday from 10 a.m. to noon at Iowa Lutheran Hospital in Conference Room 1.

A variety of educational topics will be presented by guest speakers or by the nurse who leads the group. This informal setting is interactive, and questions and discussion are encouraged. Discussion topics may include care of mother, common baby health care issues, cues to understanding infant communication, developmental milestones, feeding issues, play time, safety issues and sleeping habits.
