I'm sneaking on to your board for a second because I need the opinion of new mothers. I just found out that the only day I could possibly take the "Caring for your Newborn" class at my hospital is early July - but I'm not due until the beginning of October. On the other available dates for the class, I'm just not free. I feel like this is extremely early (and it kind of messes up the budget I've planned).
I have heard from a few of my friends that this particular class isn't the most helpful, because they're going over things that you have probably already read/researched about, or things you will learn in the hospital when you deliver. I've been reading up and researching like crazy so I'm not going into this totally blind (although I realize that as a FTM you never know exactly what you're getting into).
So what do you guys think? Cough up the money and take the class 3 months before I'm due? Or skip this one and just enjoy all the other classes I've already registered for (pediatric CPR, childbirth preparation weekend, breastfeeding)?
Thanks in advance!
