Healthy Steps for Young Children
Wish your baby came with a user’s manual?
Do you wonder, how do I cope with crying, feeling sad or overwhelmed, starting solids, tantrums, toilet training, teaching my baby, and where to go for food and housing?
Healthy Steps for Young Children is a service provided to you and your family at no charge. An expert in child development, behavior, early learning, parenting, and even breastfeeding is available to come to your home or to meet with you at our office. We can provide you with information based on years and years of research on babies. This information will help you decide what is right for you and your child. It will also help you understand the needs of your young child.
We will support your success and help you feel more confident as a parent.
Healthy Steps is available to all parents
