A Happy Baby Begins With You!

In an effort to provide WeeHands Instructors with opportunities for professional growth and to allow our Instructors to provide value added services to support their work with thie class participants, WeeHands has developed a cross marketing relationship with The Happiest Baby on the Block, Inc.

As many may know, Dr. Harvey Karp created his program to teach parents how to calm and soothe their crying baby in minutes. This revolutionary approach has been endorsed by some of the most influential organizations in the country, such as Prevent Child Abuse America. Dr. Karp's book is the only book endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics as a must have for new parents.

In 2005, Dr. Karp introduced a program to certify educators to teach his program in their local communities. Since that time, the program has expanded worldwide and has over 4800 individuals involved, 2800 of them have finished certification. Educators are in hospital settings, military installations, pregnancy programs, state and county health departments and independent educators.

WeeHands has developed a collaborative cross marketing relationship that would allow our licensed and certified WeeHands Instructor to also become a Certified Happiest Baby Educator, at a discounted rate. This will allow the WeeHands members the opportunity to expand their educational expertise and bring more information to the parents you touch each and everyday. This as an excellent opportunity to provide an additional option for teaching and marketing avenue through The Happiest Baby.

In return, WeeHands will be inviting Certified Happiest Baby Educators the opportunity to join our association and expand their educational opportunities as well. This is a win win situation that will benefit both organizations with continue education.

We would like to encourage all of our Instructors to take the time to visit The Happiest Baby website, for more information on the certification program. The regular cost of the program is $225.00; however WeeHands has negotiated a discount for our Instructors to bring the price to $180.00 plus S/H. If you would like to take advantage of this excellent opportunity, please contact the Happiest Baby Education Department at 888-980-8062. They will be happy and available to answer any questions you may have about the program.

As a Speech & language therapist I have always seen crying as communication and have struggled to leave a baby to cry. I love signing because it's a fabulous vehicle for better interaction with a baby and child. I wondered if I could use this blog post on my blog as I think what you're doing is fantastic and would like my followers to read it (I have around 4000 readers a month from all over)
