Timeline for Applying the Newborn Class
You can start all of the tips from the Will I Ever Sleep Again? newborn class (except for tip 7) when you bring your baby home from the hospital. (Tip 7 begins at 4 weeks of age.)
At the same time, Cara will tell you in the class that your goals for the first 4 weeks are to take care of the baby, and take care of yourself (and perhaps feed your dog). There's no pressure to apply any of the tips in that first month unless you're ready.
