Fat Quarter Friday: Book Cover

Fat Quarter Friday: Book Cover

Baby Class Graduates

So my husband and I have now taken all of the baby prep classes that our hospital offers. We took breastfeeding basics, an after baby comes class, and a general child birth class. At first we weren’t going to take any classes, but then I figured fine I’ll take the breastfeeding class. Then for some reason I just signed us up for the other two. I’m actually really glad I did. Pretty much everyone I talked to from work said that...
