How old was your LO before taking to mother & baby groups etc
I was just wondering what age is good to involve your LO in the various groups on offer?
I know sometimes the groups can be more for the adults rather than babies but I already have social time with my friends etc for that, I'm more interested in getting DS involved.
I'm breastfeeding at the moment and feeds can sometimes be erratic and night times are still pretty tough but I feel incredibly guilty for some reason that I'm not in full supermum role!
I have a Sure Start Centre near me which does the various Stay & Play etc but obviously LO sn't really in a position to do much 'playing' right now. There also seem to be a lot of groups in church halls but I'm not religious, does this matter?
I'm also not really good with making small talk etc so a bit nervous about just rocking up to a group where everyone generally knows each other and have their own little groups etc.
I started taking Daniel to the local surestart at 5 weeks.
He spent most of the time asleep, but it was nice to chat to others about all sorts of stuff and to get advice.
My surestart is a Bumps and Babes group, which also has the weekly weigh in with the HV, so you can also get professional advice there.
I have recently started taking him to a playgroup in a church hall. You don't have to be religious at all. It is a way for the church to make a little bit of money (75p per child), and to give to the community.
I've never been to any baby classes, my LO is five months now. I don't really want to to be honest, I doubt Lily will know what's going on anyway. I don't mean to sound like a total loner but I don't want to go and hang around with a load of people I don't know
Baby signing sounds cool though, I might see if there's any classes near me.
