Developmental Play for New & Expecting Parents (0-6 months)
My newborn is fed, changed, napped, now what? Play? How do you play with a newborn? In this workshop we will discuss the four main areas of baby's growth and explore ways to interact with them on a daily basis. You do not need the latest app or a fancy activity gym from the baby store. Babies crave your attention, all they need is you! Play encourages development which fosters strong relationships, more restful sleep, and a happy baby. Parents will also meet other new parents and become part of a community of mindful caregivers.
Join Tovah of Worn This Way to learn all the basics of babywearing. With a sampling of carriers, slings, and wraps to play with, Tovah will help you learn which carrier is best for you and your baby, as well as teach you the many benefits of wearing your baby. This class will also focus on safe babywearing, with special attention to ergonomics and hip/spine development, as well as airway safety.
This is a HANDS ON class! Please bring any carriers or slings that you already own so that you can leave comfortable and confident. Not sure what carrier you need- Tovah will have with her a variety of carriers (slings, wraps, soft-structured etc..) for you to try out. You'll leave this class feeling informed, confident, and hands free!
