I wasn’t sure I’d go full hog on the baby classses for baba number 2 but when it came to it, it seemed like the perfect opportunity for some one on one time that becomes such a rarity with the second child.
We did both our classes with Little Lotus. Baby Massage and Baby Yoga. Here’s a little about both below if you are looking into doing some yourself!
This class is run over about an hour but the massage part is over a 30 minute period. This particular class was done so nicely. When we arrived there was a mat, super soft pillow and little printed name card for each baby. We all circled a big patchwork quilt and with plenty of time to chill we got started. Each week we worked on different areas of the babies in the lovely warm room. The whole class is baby led so stopping for feeds, cuddles etc is all encouraged and you feel completely at ease. It just happened all but one were all second time mums so we had lots to chat about. Our chats were made all the nicer by a range of yummy bikkies and a hot cup of tea made by the lovely Jennie. The best part about it was aguaranteed good sleep by Max after the class so some down time for mama or at least time to get the dinner on! 😉
I joined this class half way through the term but I really wanted to take part as there were a few members of my baby massage class, I had loved that so much and I also knew with all the actions/songs involved in baby yoga that Max would just love it and I wasn’t wrong! The class takes a similar format to the baby massage but is a bit more action filled. There is good stretching and movement for mama and song brilliant songs and swinging for baba when Max just squealed with delight. The session is finished by lying with your baby to a lovely uplifting song and along with Max’s gigggles this was probably my favourite part of this class, chilling and reflecting with my littlest man.
