“Help! I’m a new RealCare® Baby Program user. Where do I begin?”

Beginning a brand-new educational program or inheriting an existing one isn’t always easy, but thanks to our Product Support Team, knowing where to go to get started is.

One of questions our Product Support Team receives most frequently is, ‘Where do I being with RealCare Baby?” Whether you are just beginning RealCare Baby Program or inheriting a current one, we have the resources to get you started running a successful program of your own.

Here are the three steps we recommend new RealCare Baby Program Users take:

Step 1: Watch RealCare Product Manager Denise Bodart’s 30-minute webinar, “Where do I Begin with RealCare Baby?
This webinar features a review of what’s included with RealCare Baby 3, how to add and program RealCare Baby and how to interpret the post-simulation report

Step 2: Get to know Baby, what’s included with Baby and what you need to run your program.
