Reinventing the Baby Class - Introducing Baby Tranquil

At Tots Play we've been supporting parents and babies for 15 years, and while many of the joys and challenges of the early days with a little one remain universal, over that time the pressures and expectations on new parents have grown and grown, at the same time as they are often be becoming more and more isolated from others and from a wider support system.

Making sure you feel supported as a parent, while offering lots of developmental opportunities for your little one, has always been a big part of our ethos at Tots Play, but recognising the changing pressures on new parents, we wanted to do more.

So we’ve reinvented the baby class - we've created a brand new course, unlike anything we've offered, or you will have experienced before, with you, and your wellbeing at its heart, plus the opportunity to find a community to nurture you through your parenting journey.

That doesn’t mean we’re forgetting about your gorgeous little one, this is a course for you both.

It's an invitation to slow your pace. These early days with your new baby are such a whirlwind and so much has changed in such a short time, I know it can all feel overwhelming.

To find some space to just take a breath and enjoying be in the moment with your precious bundle.

Time to relax, enjoy some lovely calming activities together and to find support from other new mamas going through the same joys and challenges.

A place to focus on your own happiness and wellbeing, to fill your own cup so you have more to share with your little one and the others around you.

We've created just that place for you here at Tots Play, with a brand new baby class unlike any other - it’s called, Baby Tranquil.

Introducing Baby Tranquil

Baby Tranquil is an all new, 5 week course, for parents with babies up to around 4 months. It's a place where you can leave behind the pressures and busyness of everyday life and enjoy special time strengthening your bond and relaxing together within a supportive community of other new parents with babies of a similar age.

Happier parents lead to happier babies, so we also focus on own your happiness and wellbeing as a parent, as we introduce some simple, but hugely valuable, science based, ideas and techniques to help you more easily navigate these early stages of parenthood – all designed to fit into everyday life with a newborn.

What can you expect from the course?

When your baby is so young a busy baby class can feel overwhelming for you both, so at Baby Tranquil the focus is less on doing, and more on simply being in the moment with your new little one to help you connect and strengthen your bond, with some gentle activities to enjoy together.

You’ll find a relaxed, non-judgemental space, where the aim is for you to go away feeling a little more replenished than when you came - we know how exhausting these early weeks are. You’ll be welcomed and supported exactly as you and your baby are on that day, so there’s no need to worry if either or both of you are not feeling very tranquil when you arrive!

Through the course, you’ll also be introduced to techniques to help you to feel calmer as a parent, when that seems elusive, and talk about ideas to help you to be more present through the day and especially with your baby, to recognise the benefits that practicing gratitude can bring, explore why self-care is so important both for you and those around you, and help you to be a little kinder to yourself too. There will also be time to simply relax and enjoy some peaceful moments with your baby.

What happens at a class?

  • At each class we start by saying hello and checking in with each other to see how our week has been.

  • We’ll then bring our focus to our babies, to really being present with them and noticing all the little things about them that can so easily be overlooked with the busy pace of life.

  • We’ll introduce them to some lovely sensory experiences as they start to become more aware of the world around them, and help them to relax with some soothing massage strokes.

  • You’ll learn some lovely activities to help you and your baby focus fully on each other to strengthen the bond between you.

  • We’ll also focus on you and your wellbeing, with gentle breathing and movement exercises to help you feel calmer and more in control as you negotiate the challenges of parenting a newborn.

  • We’ll talk about our weekly wellbeing theme, sharing experiences and exploring practical ways to help smooth your days as a new parent and feel more confident in your role.

  • We’ll finish with a lovely, soothing relaxation to enjoy together.

Everything we do is simple enough for you to be able to carry on at home through the week, and in the months to come, extending the benefits far beyond class time, and you’ll get a lovely course guide and journal to support you in getting the most from what we’ll cover too.

Why join a course?

It’s so easy to lose ourselves when we become a parent, and, in the midst of looking after baby and everyone else, forget to take care of our own needs – but if we neglect them for too long then we don’t have the physical, mental and emotional resources we need to be able to keep looking after those who rely on us. Protecting your own wellbeing is not a selfish thing to think about, then, but actually the only way to be able to keep taking care of others. As the saying goes, you can’t pour from an empty cup, so it’s your responsibility to keep that cup topped up.

The aim of the Baby Tranquil course is for you to go away with some tools and resources to do that, as well as becoming more aware of how to read and respond to your baby’s needs to smooth the days a little for you both, and with the support of a community of other parents to cheer you on.

You don't need to figure this out alone

Parenting is probably the hardest job you’ll ever do, but you don’t need to do it alone. Baby Tranquil has been created so that you don’t have to – it’s the baby class you never knew you absolutely needed as a new parent, so come and join us soon. We’re waiting to welcome you, and I promise you’ll be glad you did.
