Baby Needs and Care
- 10:00 AM
There are things you need to know and resources you need to care for your baby. Everything from what car seat is best for your growing child to choosing the right childcare provider and keeping your baby physically healthy can make a lasting difference for parents.
Any child riding in a vehicle must be in a car seat. You can find information here regarding how to properly seat your baby and what car seat is best for their age.
Find additional information on California Office of Traffic Safety’s website, which provides details on where you can get your baby’s car seat installed and checked for safety.
Finding the proper child care is essential for you and your baby’s development. This is a place they will spend a decent amount of time and is a place to learn outside of the home. It is necessary for you to start searching for a provider sooner rather than later if you plan to return to work. Some facilities have waiting list.
