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 email@example.com or message me via Facebook
We’re very lucky to have the talented Kay Oliver with us during the Christmas Baby Massage and Yoga Workshops.
Kay will be providing a Winter Wonderland set up similar to the one shown in these images and will be providing the pictures as digital downloads. Brilliant for making Christmas cards to send to family and friends or just as a lovely keep sake.
It may not be the most thrilling conversation topic but if you have small kids or teach baby massage then you probably get through alot of towels.
I find that an average baby massage class gets though around about 30 towels. I’ve got a 9kg front load washing machine and 30 towels is about its limit.
I use and Eco Egg and Miofresh to wash my towels. My eldest daughter has very sensitive skin and we found that most detergents had a bit of perfume in or left residues on the laundry but the Eco Egg washes in a different way so nothing is left on the clothes or towels to irritate skin.
I add the Mio Fresh to ensure that there are no germs left on the towels. Having used cloth nappies with my children i’m quite familiar with getting baby solids and liquids out of fabrics and this combo is what works for me.
I really enjoy doing demo sessions at the NCT Bumps and Babies group in Long Eaton. There are always lots of gorgeous babies to meet and often a few familiar faces which is lovely.
I attended this particular group waaay back when I was a bump with my first baby. It was lovely and welcoming and a great way to meet other parents and carers of babies of a similar age. In fact, my daughter went on to go to pre-school and now primary school with some of the little people that she met there. It made it soo much easier for her on her first few days of settling in at pre-school because she already had a little group of friends.
You don’t have to be an NCT member to attend the group and the recommended donation is only £2. The group organiser is really proactive and arranges for lots of people (like me!) to come and visit which can really help you to decide about activities to do with your baby.
So if you live locally why not drop in. 10:30-12:30 on Thursday mornings at St Johns church hall on College Street in Long Eaton, Nottingham.
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.
