This week as well as being able to come along and have a drink and a biscuit and meet other mums & mums-to-be Baby Calm is offering a taster session for babies.
BabyCalm help new parents to enjoy their baby by providing support from pregnancy through to the end of their baby's first year.
They help with everything from antenatal preparation for the arrival of a new baby, through to coping with colic and crying, weaning information and help with baby's sleeping, using gentle methods. Based on the work of their founder, popular parenting expert, Sarah Ockwell-Smith, their antenatal classes and postnatal baby classes turn crying babies and stressed parents into calmer babies and happier parents without a copy of Gina Ford or controlled crying in sight!
Along with the Baby Calm taster, we will also have a visit from the Sweet Wrappers Sling Library and Babywearing Consultancy.
Established and run by Marianne Sawford, an experienced and qualified babywearing consultant and advocate, Sweet Wrappers offers to enable you in carrying your baby or child, with a range of services, including:
- Sling Hire - The perfect way to try before you buy. Two-week hire fees are between £5 and £10.
- Individual Carrying Consultations - For parents or parents-to-be to try as many different slings and carriers as they would like, and explore the different ways they can be used, comfortably and safely, in order to be able to make the right choice for them.
- Workshops and Talks - For groups such as antenatal or parenting classes. Sessions can be tailored to the needs of the group. Great as an introduction to the practicalities and benefits of carrying babies.
- Sling Meets - Free advice for parents and parents-to-be and the opportunity to try on slings and carriers. Marianne is the founder of Haywards Heath Sling Meet and continues to organise and host monthly meets.
If you wish to hire a sling from Sweet Wrappers please read, sign and bring a printed copy of their terms and conditions. Hire fees are £5 or £10, payable in cash, and deposits (full retail value of the sling) can be paid in cash or by cheque.
