2016 Parenting Workshops Presented by Children's Hospital Colorado


Free parenting workshops are back!

Parenting. There is a lot to it. No one knows your kids like you do, but sometimes you need a quick tip, a new idea and maybe a little support to get past the fussing and on to the laughing, growing, learning and living. That's where the experts at Children's Hospital Colorado can help.

Children's Colorado is committed to providing a full range of pediatric services, often including services not available anywhere else. Our parenting workshops are one way we are able to share our pediatric expertise with you and your family.

Admission to the Parenting Workshop Series is FREE, but space is limited!

Parenting workshops in the Denver area:

  • May 14 – Happiest Baby on the Block at Children’s Hospital Colorado, South Campus from 9am-12pm. Happiest Baby on the Block is a program designed to teach parents how to calm their crying baby in a matter of minutes. Techniques learned in this one-day class have been proven to help improve parental bonding, nursing success and prevent Shaken Baby Syndrome. Parents who have implemented the Happiest Baby on the Block and Kohl’s Shaken Baby Syndrome Prevention Campaign techniques have helped their babies sleep an extra 1-2 hours per night! This class is ideal for parents with children (ages newborn to 3 months old recommended), and attendees are encouraged to bring their babies to class! Practicing on your own child builds confidence and enhances the learning experience.  Parents will also be taught infant CPR at the end of class. The cost is $40, and includes the Happiest Baby on the Block Parent Kit (DVD & CD). Please contact Erica Montgomery at 720.777.6067 or Erica.Montgomery@ChildrensColorado.org with questions.
