New Parent Support Program

Baby Boot Camp

Having a baby is both an exciting as well as scary experience as they don’t come with instruction manuals. Many times parents are at a loss as to what to do when their newborn comes home from the hospital. Baby Boot Camp is an all-day class designed to help alleviate some of that stress by teaching parents information that they will need for the first few weeks at home. The class covers such topics as: diapering, bottle and breastfeeding holds, how to soothe a fussy infant, safe sleep, and when to call the doctor. You don’t have to be a first time parent to participate in the class, and it is recommended that parents attend when they are in the 3rd trimester of pregnancy. Please call 703-614-7204 or 703-614-7208 to register.

Infant Massage Class

Infant Massage Class (5 week series)

Whether it’s to soothe a little one to Dreamland, ease a gassy belly, or calm a fussy baby, a gentle massage can work wonders — and the power is in your tender touch.


Of the five senses, touch is the one that’s most developed at birth. Research suggests that infant massage has enormous benefits for helping babies grow and thrive including:
• Easing tummy troubles
• Boosting muscle development
• Helping soothe to sleep


What’s more, giving your baby a massage can help you find your own sense of calm!


Infant massage will be taught over a span of 5 weeks, with instructors demonstrating on dolls. For more information, please contact NPSP at watersd@usmc-mccs.org or 703-693-7208 or 703-614-7204.
