Baby classes aren’t for everyone….

For some people, attending a baby group or class is either not their idea of fun or just not possible. Being unable to drive, or not having access to a car can make it difficult to get to some class and group venues too.

Not everyone feels comfortable in groups of people and it can be quite daunting to get out on your own with a new baby.

I offer 1-1 sessions in the comfort of your own home or mine. I provide all the towels and oil and information so all you need to do is relax and enjoy some lovely bonding with your baby.

We can focus on any areas of concern such as constipation, wind or congestion or I can just share with you a general routine for helping both you and your Baby to relax and hopefully aid better sleep for both of you.

The session can involve just one person and Baby (or a doll if you’re looking to learn a few strokes before Baby arrives) or can include your partner, other children or family member or group of friends.

For more information or to book a session message chilledbeansbaby@outlook.com or message me via Facebook

Mama Bean Summer Social

A few pictures from our lovely friendly social event. Thank you to everyone that came along  on the day and to our partner businesses The Bakery Cafe and Mi Tiempo for helping to make everyone feel welcome.

It was lovely to catch up with some former class members to see how the babies have gown and brilliant to meet some new little beans and their mummies too.

Massage can help babies and adults sleep better………

Its true! Massage has been shown to help muscles relax more efficiently which helps baby breathe more deeply and achieve a better quality of sleep.

Regularly touching and stroking your baby reduces the stress hormone cortisol but increases melatonin and the super special oxytocin.

Therefore incorporating massage in a bedtime routine can help baby to calm down and relax ready for sleep.

We used to massage our biggest bean every night after her bath. I enjoyed that quiet time together and I think she did too. Now that we have two little ladies to sort out at bedtime it can be difficult to find time to massage them both every night so it’s more of a treat or something we do if either child has had a bad/stressful day. My three yr old tends to prefer bedtime yoga nowadays but she does sometimes ask for a massage while she reads her book though. 

At each massage class that I’ve attended with my own children or taught to others most of the babies have had a feed and then a good snooze afterwards. I’ve fallen asleep during of plenty of relaxing massages myself too!!
