Wellbaby 1 with Infant Massage (~ 6 weeks to starting to roll):

You have a new baby...now what? This 5-week class is designed to help families understand how to develop their interaction skills with their newborn. We do not focus specifically on age, rather where your child is at developmentally. Generally this group is most appropriate for babies that are starting to alert a little more, starting to smile, and starting to kick their legs and appropriate to when they are starting to roll and sustaining longer periods of alertness and interest in the world 

Focus areas of the class includes:

  • Importance of floor time play and its link to other developmental skills
  • Alternative positions to work on tummy time for those babies that may get frustrated on their belly
  • Appropriate toys for this age and how to utilize these within play and daily life
  • Building early language skills
  • Strategies for soothing
  • Development of your baby’s senses and how these link to learning and play
  • Screening for head preference or flattening of head

Includes full infant massage by certified educator of infant massage
