Baby Talk

What is Baby Talk?

Baby Talk is a weekly drop-in group for parents and their babies ages birth to one year. The group is run by the Ontario Early Years Centre. A Public Health Nurse from the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit attends once or twice a month depending on the location.

Baby Talk groups are a great chance to:

  • Ask questions about infant feeding, growth and development and parenting
  • Learn about what is available in your community
  • Meet other parents
  • Find out what to expect with your new baby!
