Each of the five sessions of our programme is designed to provide a calming and supportive environment for parents and their babies:
Warm Welcome Mindful Routine: The session begins with a routine that sets a positive and comfortable atmosphere for parents and babies.
Beautiful Water Time Session: Your baby will have the opportunity to experience their own little warm bath, which is designed for sensory discoveries and mindful connection between you and your baby.
Calming Relaxation with Nurturing Touch: The session includes moments of calming relaxation and nurturing touch to help you and your baby bond.
Time to Chat with Other Parents: Bath Babies sessions provide a supportive community and an opportunity to connect with fellow parents who may be going through similar experiences, without feeling rushed.
Weekly Themes: Each session follows a weekly theme, allowing you to build on your knowledge and understanding of what your baby enjoys in the water.
Full Sensory Experience: The classes create a sensory-rich environment with low lights, calming music and lullabies.
Supportive Environment: We aim to provide a supportive and stress-free environment for new parents, acknowledging the challenges and adjustments that come with caring for a new baby.
All Equipment Provided: All necessary equipment, including baths and sensory toys, are provided during the classes, so you only need to bring a towel for your little one! Tea and coffee are on the house!
WHY should you join our Bath Babies workshop?
Bath Babies parents report how much their baby loved the water routines and how they could see their confidence in handling their baby in the water grow (also making home bath times so much more fun and relaxing!). Here's why YOU should enrol:
EARLY WATER INTRODUCTION
Bath Babies classes offer a gentle and supportive way to introduce your baby to water from as early as 3 weeks old, providing a unique and beneficial experience for their development.
PARENT-BABY BONDING TIME
These classes focus on nurturing touch, promoting a strong bond between you and your baby and creating magical moments for both of you.
NEW PARENT SUPPORT
Bath Babies classes provide a supportive environment for new parents, offering a community of like-minded individuals and a stress-free environment to ease the challenges of early parenthood.
Each session is baby-led and flexible, and very much based on your little one's needs. Lidwina will guide you on how to respond to your baby's cues and make the most of this special one-on-one time.
“We started the Bath Babies by Giggle’N’Splash classes when our girl was 6 weeks old, and at this time she did NOT like her bathtime.
My husband and I were surprised, as both of us really love water, but our child cried every time we bathed her.
After the first session, our child began to enjoy the whole process! The secret is in the right approach.
During this workshop, I was taught how to interact properly with water while bathing a baby, learning about different techniques and some games. But more importantly, through these sessions, I began to understand my baby better, I grounded myself, stopped rushing, and managed to relax.
I think initially, after a child's birth, it can be kind of stressful for every new parent. This course was great moral support at the very beginning of my journey into motherhood, helping me establish an even stronger connection with my daughter through the moments of these magical water activities.
Each session was like a special ritual, after which my daughter and I were HAPPY AND CALM!"
