Happy Tummy Timers!
December 3, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 9:45 am$45.00
Finally…Mommy and Daddy and Me for Newborns!!
After this 75-minute class, parents and babies will have the tools for happy tummy and floor play time, starting from birth. Parents will be re-energized, calmer, empowered and more knowledgeable for true success at home!
s “tummy time” for my baby really essential? My pediatrician says I need to do it, but my baby gets mad, fusses or cries. Am I doing it wrong? Her arm gets stuck…his legs flail behind him…she looks like she is swimming…he just won’t lift his head…she spits up all the time…it looks so uncomfortable and I don’t know how to help him!
If this touches upon some of your questions and worries, you are NOT alone. And there are answers to all those concerns and much more! You will leave class re-energized, calmer, empowered and more knowledgeable about your baby as a beautiful and unique individual trying to navigate his way around his new world. In this single class, you will learn effective take-home strategies that will set your baby and the family on the right path to happy, playful, fun, (and, yes, even relaxing) tummy time to give your baby the best start.
