The Happiest Baby on the Block will be at CHKD Health Surgery Center at Princess Anne. This is a free two-hour class for expectant and new parents. It will get through baby's first few months. I attended a similar class when I was pregnant with my second child. I found it to be a good refresher and I learned a few new things.
