  3. The Babies have become so much more than just a project for these students. They have really become a great discussion piece for choosing to parent or building their resumes for jobs.

    These products provide a consistent, safe experience for students before going into a clinical setting.  They have the opportunity to handle these babies in different ways; to know what is safe; and how to bathe and swaddle them; to understand how to approach them.

    We've had teachers tell us that students are so interested they sign up for their classes just to get a baby.

    The Babies are a boost to anyone's program. Having a product like this makes teaching much easier. It's the little hook that gets students and parents excited and teaches them so much.

    I liked the fact that I could program RealCare Baby on my computer and during the simulation, when the baby would cry or burp, students would have to watch the mother take care of the baby’s unexpected needs. This was extremely real and it was random – students had to react in real time, to a real-life situation.

    I have seen a very important aspect that RealCare Baby adds to a middle school curriculum. I think it's vital in the decision-making process, to get that hands-on experience.
