The ‘Baby and You’ programme follows on from antenatal classes and offers sound tips and strategies as you begin your remarkable journey into parenthood.

Anyone with a new baby can attend the classes you dont need to have done antenatal calsses with Parents Centre.

Many parents, particularly new mums, find the information and support in the ‘Baby and You’ programme extremely helpful in managing the challenges, and making the most of the rewards, that a new baby brings to into their life. Parents Centres believe strongly in the strength of the support networks in getting through those early months. Firm friendships are often formed between course participants, through shared experiences and understandings.

Discussion topics include:

Week 1

Feeding - Where are they at now? Growth spurts, time, mastitis, trouble shooting
Sleeping - What is normal? Dispelling the myths
Crying - Tired signs and cues, crying is communication, in arms crying
Q & A - Ask questions about your birth or recovery questions
Week 2

Baby massage
Health and growth - fontanelle, hormone spots etc
Week 3

Infant Development - the latest research and information from Brainwave Trust for babies from 0-6 months
Discovering that other new parents can experience similar difficulties or have the same questions can be hugely supportive. Babies grow quickly and they go through a variety of stages. ‘Baby and You’ explores the first 3 months of your baby’s life and gives practical information about stimulation for babies, age-appropriate toys and the key milestones of your baby’s growth. The programme also recognises the heavy demands babies have on parents’ time and attention. It is common for parents to feel a loss of independence, a huge lack of sleep and worries around employment and financial changes. Included is a section on self-care strategies for parents – it’s a challenging time and let’s not forget about mum (or dad)!

Class cost is $40 for the 3 week programme - Spaces are limited and bookings are essential
