Program Description: Booties Camp: Baby Massage (1st in a Series) This series is based on the idea of a parenting “boot camp” that will give you the skills, confidence, and connections to raise a healthy, happy infant. You don’t have to attend all the workshops; just choose the ones that are a good fit for your family. Babies and partners are welcome! This workshop is all about relaxation, bonding, and the power of touch. The benefits of baby massage are amazing. When you massage your infant you can reduce crying, increase sleep, improve blood circulation and digestion, balance breathing, inspire relaxation and better self-esteem, and create a loving parent-child bond. In this hands-on workshop, you will learn simple massage techniques that your baby will love. Wed, Jan 24 | 10 am – 12 pm Booties Camp: Baby Basics (2nd in a Series) Have questions about how to care for your newborn to 3-month-old baby? Still trying to understand about swaddling, bathing, skin care, and what to do with that umbilical cord? Come learn all the answers from an experienced nurse who will inform you and put you at ease. At home safety measures and when to call the pediatrician or nurse practitioner are also covered. Wed, Jan 31 | 10 am – 12 pm Booties Camp: Baby Yoga (3rd in a Series) Yoga is a great way to regain shape, strength, and energy after giving birth. It’s also a great way to learn about breath and body awareness. This workshop includes exercises for breathing and getting centered. We’ll also learn poses with, and without the baby, songs for bonding with baby, and calming exercises for you and baby. Taught by Elika Aird, a certified yoga instructor and doula, the class is designed for mothers and their pre-crawling babies, but babies of all ages are welcome. Wed, Feb 7 | 10 am – 12 pm Booties Camp: Baby Sleep (4th in a Series) Sleep can often feel like the number one lost activity for new parents when the baby arrives. You may be up all night soothing a crying infant, exhausted from keeping up with your little one throughout the day, or just tired from trying to juggle life’s many tasks. At this workshop, we will talk about sleep patterns, locations, naps, night feedings, co-sleeping, healthy training, and much more! Bring your questions and come learn about what’s going on with your newborn. Wed, Feb 14 | 10 am – 12 pm
