About the Guide for Grandparents Course

Becoming a grandparent is one of life’s highlights, though it’s also a time when many new grandparents can feel uncertain. Each generation cares for their babies in different ways to the one before and information changes as evidence evolves. What was once the source of truth may no longer be current, and in fact some practices may actually cause harm.
