United Way First Steps program to host event for local moms

United Way of Central Georgia is announcing “Baby Care Boot Camp” to be held from 11:30 am-1:30 pm on Thursday, January 30th at King-Danforth Boys & Girls Club at 1301 Shurling Drive in Macon. The event will feature local experts offering a free crash course on the early stages of parenting including breastfeeding, child and infant safety, school readiness, and baby & child dental care. There will be giveaways including baby bassinets, children’s books, diapers and more. 
“The beginning of a child’s life is some of the most critical time of development and that’s what First Steps is all about,” said First Steps Coordinator, Lauralen Avery. “At Baby Care Boot Camp, we want to provide parents with some of the necessary tools to give their child the best chance for success. Those tools may come in the form of knowledge or physical gifts, but they will all empower local parents.”
