Raising a newborn can be stressful, unless you have the right support.

You've come to the right place!

Are you expecting a baby or do you have an infant at home?

Let experts help you navigate those exciting, yet overwhelming first months!

There's so much to know when it comes to raising a baby, and the number of resources available to you (especially on social media) can actually seem more confusing than helpful.

Maybe you've taken a delivery course or a basic newborn care course. But have you been given any education on infant feeding and sleeping development?

As pediatric therapists, we think you deserve quality education about your infant’s feeding and sleeping skills so that you can make informed decisions, know how to prevent common issues, and feel empowered as a parent!

 

If any of these sound like you, know that you are NOT alone and we can help!

Are you exhausted by sleepless nights, struggling to get your infant to sleep and to stay asleep?

Are you stressed trying to feed your baby from the breast and/or bottle?

Does your baby spit up after every feed, have reflux, or is gassy?

Does your baby have colic? Is he crying frequently and always seems uncomfortable?

Are you expecting, and want to do everything you can to be prepared for baby?


You and your baby don't have to struggle through this stage. There are so many things we can teach you to get baby feeding and sleeping well so that they can progress through those essential milestones!

Your baby deserves to thrive, and you deserve the education to support baby!

After taking this course...

  • You'll walk away with complete confidence in knowing how to feed your infant (with focus on the bottle, which is not always covered in lactation courses).

  • You'll have a full understanding of infant sleep, and you'll know exactly what to do to create healthy sleep habits from day one (no matter where your baby sleeps).

  • You'll look at your baby's body in a whole new way. You'll feel confident touching, moving, and stretching your baby so that they can stay cool, calm, and flexible. This is necessary if you want your baby to feed and sleep well.

There's so much to know about your baby, it can seem overwhelming. But we make it simple!

Take the only comprehensive antenatal online course taught by pediatric physical, speech, and lactation specialists.

Why do all parents (and babies) need this course?

Feeding and sleeping are the building blocks of infant development.

 Baby must have successful feeding and sleeping skills to THRIVE!

If your baby has difficulty eating, you will often see issues with sleeping, motor development, and even temperament. 

The same goes with sleeping. If your baby is having trouble sleeping, they will be too fatigued to eat and progress their motor skills.

Not only is this frustrating for your baby, but as a parent, it is extremely stressful (and expensive) to experience these difficulties. 

By taking this course, you will not only learn how to get baby to eat and sleep well, but you will do it with confidence

 

"I was so overwhelmed with what books and resources to read, until I found Their Best Start. This course laid out everything so nicely and I am so much less stressed now that I know how to feed and get my baby to sleep!"

-Kristin, First time mom

Don't wait to learn essential infant-parenting skills.

Your future self (and baby) will thank you.
