Whether you are new to parenting or a master kid wrangler, the infancy stage can leave any parent or caregiver completely exhausted! In this section, we have created a list of resources to help you navigate this period of time of getting to know your infant and getting used to your new routine.
We have some amazing local organizations that are passionate about you and your child's health and happiness! You can find links to Parents As Teachers, who focus on parent- child bonding and interaction through activities modeled around your child's development, Laramie Breastfeeding Coalition, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization made up of any health care professional or individual interested in promoting a breastfeeding culture in our community, and WY Quality Counts, whose mission is to raise awareness about why quality child care matters for Wyoming’s children and their families. You can also find several online resources to help track your child's developmental milestones and get guidance on how to help your learn through activities, as well as, where to get them screened for these milestones and professionals if you find they are not meeting these milestones in a timely manner.
