The SPROUTS BABY CLASS is the sequel to the BUDS Newborn class, offered every other month. (participation in a BUDS class not a requirement).
No longer newborns and not yet toddlers, Sprouts have a lot going on! Teething, sitting, starting solids, rolling, creeping and crawling. New nap schedules and beginning to baby proof are just some of the topics that parents in this window of early childhood/early parenthood have on their minds. Our 3 to 6+ months Sprouts Class is designed to support you as you begin integrating a new normal, finding your parenting philosophy, and building a new support network. At this time, we're limiting enrollment to pre-mobile babies. This is an additional safety precaution we're taking during the ongoing pandemic (we are counting the days until we can lift this restriction!).
Topics: Each class addresses the needs voiced by participants and can range from the practical - such as evolving sleep strategies, continued baby and parent development, infant massage, baby signs, first solid foods - to the more thoughtful - like understanding your birth and early parenting experience, observing how your relationships with friends and family have changed, and building a filter for all of the information and advice that comes your way as a parent.
Class Flow: Class consists of a thoughtfully guided check-in with community building prompts, followed by resource sharing and skill building related to the topic of the day. We encourage you build in time to linger after class, if you are able, for the "after party" conversations.
$75 For One Parent + Baby. This is a six (6) hour class series held over four weeks. Scholarships are available upon request.
Partners: For in-person postnatal classes, we are not able to allow more than one parent per registration to attend at this time due to our decision to limit class size during the pandemic. If both parents wish to attend, we ask that you purchase two registrations.
Beginning in 2022, this class will primarily be held in person and require masks and proof of vaccination. If you prefer or require a virtual class, please register for the Waitlist option and indicate your need for an online class when prompted.
