Car seat safety, budgeting for birth, and child care options are just a few of the topics covered in the “Bundles for Babies” class that is held on a bi-monthly basis at the Hill Air Force Base Airman and Family Readiness Center. The most recent class was held on May 22 at 1 p.m. 

This opportunity offered a fun and educational way for expecting parents to gather information about financial resources and medical issues such as shaken baby syndrome. 

The course is put on by the Air Force Aid Society who encourages people to come “if you are an active duty member, or spouse of an active duty member, who is expecting a baby or is a new mother at an Air Force installation.”

One event coordinator, Kimberly Taylor, a Community Readiness Consultant at Hill, described the class as “a great opportunity for expectant parents to network and gain access to the resources available to assist them.”

Upon completion of the course, parents received a free “bundle” provided by the Air Force Aid Society who purchased them “from the Gerber Company.” 

According to their website, the packages include: “Two-piece bath set, five-pack onesie (6-9 month), three-pack burp cloth (neutral), one-pack thermal blanket (white)” — among other useful items.

Interested attendees must contact the Airman and Family Readiness Center to register when a course becomes available.
