SPECIAL EVENTS

Healthy Teeth (Lincoln)

Dr. Libby and Dr. Emily from Lincoln Pediatric Dentistry will visit MilkWorks to talk about healthy teeth: pregnancy and your oral health; caring for baby's mouth before & after the first tooth' teething and nursing; use of pacifiers and thumb sucking ... and more! This is a free presentation, but we ask that you call 402-423-6402 to register.


Kindersigns (Lincoln)

Marcia Murray, a Baby Sign Language Specialist, will help you learn how to sign with your baby. Signing is a perfect way to communicate with your 6 to 18 month old. It helps pre-verbal children express their wants and needs - and reduces frustration for both kids and parents. Both parents and grandparents are welcome to attend. Class meets once a week for 4 weeks. Fee is $20 for a 4 week session.
