Kit for New Parents

Babies don’t come with instruction manuals. That’s why First 5 offers the free Kit for New Parents. Available at Neighborhoods for Learning, WIC Centers, and Public Libraries this extensive kit contains the following items:

  • Celebrity Hosted DVD – Covering everything from oral health and child care to safety and discipline, the DVD prepares parents for their child’s early years.
  • Advice for New Parents Booklet – This comprehensive booklet is divided by “ages and stages” for easy reference, marking key milestones for parents to track how their baby is developing.
  • Parents Guide – This easy to navigate reference guide is filled with tips and up-to-date information on local resources and services.
  • What To Do When Your Child Gets Sick – This easy-to-read book answers questions many parents have regarding their child’s health and common illnesses. A great guide for helping parents determine when to treat an illness at home and when to call or see a healthcare professional.
  • “Puppy and Friends” (Baby’s First Book) – An interactive reading adventure for parents and babies to enjoy together. Filled with stimulating colors and textures to encourage brain development, babies can touch and feel puppy’s fur, nose and toy.
  • Obesity Prevention Guides – Highlighting activities that help prevent obesity in young children, these tri-fold pamphlets demonstrate interactive activities to do with children, both in and out of the home, to stimulate growth and healthy development.
  • Poison Control Magnet – This refrigerator magnet helps parents keep important safety and emergency contact information readily available.
  • Healthy Teeth Begin at Birth Brochure – Along with correlating video segments, this pamphlet gives an overview on oral health and walks parents through a baby’s first visit to the dentist.
