Description

This Sane Parents Guide is focused on Newborn Checklist andBaby Proofing Your Home. A practical guide that cuts to the chase: What stuff do you REALLY need to get your house ready for the arrival of your first baby? Not the stuff the Big Box retailer tells you that you need. Not the stuff the glossy magazines tell you need. The real and essential Newborn Checklist that you just can't do without. The stuff that will keep you sane, without adding all the stuff that will drive you crazy. That's what you'll find in this course.

Who is the target audience?
  • First time parents
  • Mother or Father
  • Anyone who's interested in learning about how to prepare for the arrival of a new baby
