With many thanks to the safe at Wheelbirks and our volunteers Kate and Andrea, Babes in Arms will continue throughout the Autumn and will be supported by local breast feeding support volunteers.
This is a fun social event held on the first and third Wednesday of every month, from 10 am until 12 noon, aimed at parents and babies up to crawling age, although there is also a toddler play area at Wheelbirks.
Drop in and join us for coffee, cakes and ice cream and to meet other parents with babes in arms.
There's something about Wheelbirks ice cream that takes the edge off that sleep deprived feeling!
Please visit the Wheelbirks facebook page for future dates and uptodate announcements.
