  • Ask your hospital. A lot of hospitals and universities offer big sibling classes, and if the hospital doesn't they may at least know where you can find one. That's really sweet that he wants to take classes for the baby just like you.

  • Tell him the truth, it is Mommy and Daddy's jobs to teach him.

  • If you are in Chicago, contact St. Joseph Hospital (Diversey and Sheridan).

  • You can ask your doctor or midwife. Your location will determine the options. You can read books, show videos, talk with him, too. You can also have your Doula come and give a class to him, as well.
