Shalom Baby “Nutrition and Your Baby’s Needs” Educational and Entertaining

The Jewish Community of Louisville’s Shalom Baby program has been helping young parents learn from one another and from professionals about how to provide the best care for their babies. On Wednesday, March 24, Dr. Nicholas Hinkebein answered myriad questions about baby-related issues at the Standard Country Club at a Shalom Baby Mom’s Night Out Q & A at 7 p.m. Queries ranged from sleeping habits to foods to safety issues. Just what the doctor ordered for those who attended. Chairs were Bari Calderon and Kristin Shapira.

On Sunday, April 11, at 10 a.m., dietitian Erin Brown brought food into perspective with a discussion about food basics for babies: how to introduce new food, food allergies, the nutrients important for baby’s health and what to do in case of choking. Eva Sokol and Kristen Yoffe chaired the event at the Jewish Community Center.

Shalom Baby is a national program designed to connect young families who anticipate or have recently experienced the birth or adoption of a child. Families that include newborns through children 18 months of age are encouraged to participate.
