We want DayOne Baby to be a haven for families to learn, love, and thrive in the process of bringing a new child into their lives. We believe new parents need both a physical haven for creating community with like-minded others, and an online haven where they can find the best products and most enhanced education for the entire family circle—moms, dads, nannies, and extended relatives alike.
We would love to hear from you. Please send us an email with your questions or comments.
At DayOne Baby we believe that expecting and new parents benefit from connecting with one another. The special bonds formed in our classes create indescribable friendships for our families. We see first-hand how community, non-judgmental, evidence-based education, and the best products can make birth and parenting less stressful and more fun for families.
We believe that our community encompasses all those around the world who are going through the parenthood journey. Our community extends far beyond our San Francisco store to reach families near and far. Our mission is to educate parents around the world through our online education on our blog, webstore, social presence on Facebook and Instagram, and through our bi-weekly newsletter.
We just moved to San Francisco a few months ago when I was 8 months pregnant. My family lives on the East coast and I knew no one out here and was feeling very isolated. I will forever be grateful to my doctor who recommended I stop by DayOne Baby and take some classes, because I have now found my home away from home!
The staff at DayOne Baby were sensitive to my breastfeeding needs and made me feel comfortable at a very vulnerable time in my life.

There is nothing more motivating to most women to improve their overall health than recognizing they are responsible for the wellbeing of another human being. Eating healthier, receiving appropriate medical care and educating yourself on ways to avoid potential hazards that could harm your developing baby are all great ways to give your baby the best start possible. Like all areas of health, there are many controversies and debates about pregnancy, childbirth and parenting. Included below are evidence-based research sources to help you learn more, enabling you to dialog with your healthcare provider.
Most people understand breastmilk is the perfect food for babies for at least the first year of life. However, with families scattered across the country, many women have lost access to the helpful hints and tips about breastfeeding that used to be learned from nearby sisters, aunts, mothers, and grandmothers. In fact, I have worked with many women who had never seen a baby breastfeed until they breastfeed their own baby. Luckily, there is a tremendous amount of helpful information and professionals to guide breastfeeding women to reach their goals and enjoy the experience with their baby.
Caring for your baby includes protecting them from harm, which is challenging given everything in sight seems to be a potential hazard! I recommend to parents to focus on basic concerns you can control such as using your car seat correctly, verifying your crib and baby furniture is safe, that you and anyone caring for your baby practice “safe sleep” with your baby and you’re preparing for emergencies such as earthquakes and fire. And don’t forget to take a CPR Certification course!
Baby brain development has become a very exciting area of new research and we are learning more and more about the incredible abilities of babies. Support your baby’s early learning by talking, playing, singing, dancing, and reading with your baby and most importantly, allow plenty of time for play.
Starting solid foods for your baby shouldn’t be complicated, but many parents find it is confusing with the multitude of recommendations as to which foods should be offered first. One thing seems clear-the days of offering white rice cereal as the best choice for a first food are over! Also, check out the Environmental Working Group’s list of the Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen foods based on levels of pesticide to help you make healthy choices when preparing foods for your baby and family.
