Do you have a baby aged 6 weeks to crawling?
Why not come along to Baby Massage at Imagination Street Astwood Bank.

Within my group I will guide you through all of the basics of baby massage in a clear and relaxed fashion, ensuring that you use the right strokes with the right amount of pressure, watching you and your baby for the right cues and encouraging you both through this gentle learning experience in a manner that is informal and relaxing, yet is informed and knowledgeable.
The course runs over four, one hour sessions and includes entry to Imagination Street and use of the soft play for older siblings.
Course cost £38 per group and needs to be paid before the course begins to secure a place.

What do our customers say?
"LullaBaby is definitely a highlight of our week! Jo is a caring teacher who delivers well thought through, engaging and stimulating sessions. My little one (and I!) thoroughly enjoy the creative and exciting activities each week."
"LullaBaby is such a great baby class to attend in Bromsgrove. The classes are well planned and I love the way they have an objective for each session. The main sessions are multi sensory and you still get that time to mix with other moms and have a catch up, whilst your baby is stimulated by a wide variety of resources. Jo is lovely and welcoming which puts you at ease and makes the experience that little more special."

SLEEP DOESN’T HAVE TO BE A STRUGGLE!
Susie is here to help you help your baby or child sleep better – NO CRY IT OUT REQUIRED! Susie helps you holistically encourage your child to sleep better through gentle holistic therapies and by creating healthy sleep hygiene and finding out the root cause of the sleep issue rather than just trying to fix the sleep problem through harsh sleep training methods.
Healthy sleep hygiene = healthy rested babies and children! Every situation is looked at individually as there is no one approach fits all! We look at the child’s individual temperament and needs plus your own parenting style to create a bespoke sleep plan that is right for you and your family and more importantly one that you are comfortable with. Our methods will NEVER involve ‘cry it out’ or leaving your baby or child left alone to cry.
Changing your child’s sleep habits is a journey and Susie is here to guide and support you through your child’s journey to a better more restful nights sleep. Our bespoke packages are designed to help resolve all sleep related issues.
