Baby’s 1st Party is a free community baby shower for expectant first-time families. Nurses and educators from Madison County Health Department and Oneida Health will present on when to call the doctor’s office, what to expect at the hospital with labor and delivery, getting breastfeeding off to a good start, the importance of infant immunizations, how to sooth a crying baby, and how dads and support people can make a difference. We will also take you through a day in the life of baby with feeding, burping, diapering, taking baby’s temperature, safe sleep, and car seat safety information. WIC, Healthy Families, Care Net of CNY, Dads of Madison County, and Fidelis Care will also be in attendance for participants to connect with community resources.
