Parent and Baby Program

Parent & Baby Program

Have a baby under 1 year? Welcome to our parent & baby program

Drop-ins for families with babies up to 1 year old are held once every two weeks at various locations and offer information about:

  • feeding your baby
  • breastfeeding help and support
  • baby’s development, health, safety, & parenting
  • easy & healthy recipes & nutrition

Also the drop-in has opportunity for

  • singing and playing with your baby
  • talking to an outreach worker, nurse & dietitian one on one
  • delicious, healthy snacks
  • coupons for milk for moms (until baby is six months old)
  • childminding for preschoolers – but baby stays with you!
  • bus tickets to get to drop-in, if you don’t live within walking distance

Contact Us to find out the date and time of the drop-in nearest you.
