Walk-ins are welcome but appointments are encouraged.

The hospital also will host a class for new grandparents, who can review basic baby care and learn new practices for infant care that may have changed since they raised their own kids.

The Grandparents Class, which will cover many recommendations for current best practices for baby care, will take place from 6-8 p.m. Feb. 3 in Suite 30 at the hospital at 800 MacArthur Blvd.

The program is free but registration is required. To register, call 219-836-3477 or 866-836-3477. 

Then on Feb. 5, Community Hospital Fitness Pointe at 9950 Calumet Ave., about 1.5 miles south of the hospital, will host a free Baby & Me exercise class.
