Things to do with babies

There must be more things out there to go along to with babies?

Yeah there's baby centres and paents and toddler classes

I'm getting a bit bored of taking him out for a stroll in the pram as i go for a long walk nearly every day with him and it all gets a bit same 'old! :(

I saw on the TV once a special cinema that mums could go to where they showed a film once a week and it was so mums could go and watch a film and take their L.O's with them, and no-one minded if the cried because they had their babies there too! :) :]

what a fantastic idea!!

Does anyone else know what else there is to do during the day? i dont think my cinema does anything like that :(

My cinema doesnt either but my friend found one in London which did and she said its great!!

Thats not helping you though, right?

Well soon he will be old enough for swimming - discuss with your health visitor when you can take him.

Mother and toddler groups (although I hated that!)

Go with a friend for lunch?

They might not do one now but why don't you suggest it? I organised a special screening once at my local independent cinema at which the lights were a bit brighter than usual so that knitters could watch and knit. it was a big success. You don't get if you don't ask and there are probably loads of new mums in your area who are crying out for something to do just like you.

The babies are way too small for things like that.
Once they have had their jabs you could start to look for things to do.

Geneally thou' you may not find anything that starts until they are 3+ months.

I don't do anything either.

I went to a toddler group a couple of months ago and the other Mums just carried on chatting among themselves while I sat on the floor and entertained their children :rolleyes: I didn't bother going back.

thats bad jess some clinics are like that. do you have a sure start round near you as they are really good, a friend of mine goes to them and they do classes like cookin, swimmin, drawin and stuff like that it really is good. if there is one near you it might be worth givin them a try.

I went to a mother-and-newborn-baby group, not particularly because I wanted a group to join, but I found a couple of mums there who I really got on with, and then I started to get to know them individually and we now have become good friends and meet up just the two of us (with two babies of the same age). We're getting to know the local cafes pretty well - it's a good way of having a bit of adult conversation but letting the babies get to know each other (in time).

So, my social life tends to be one toddler group a week (more for my toddler's benefit than mine as they have more toys/activities than I have space for at home), the creche at the gym once or twice a week, and tea/coffee at home/other people's home/cafes with other children of similar ages. It's a good mixture for the child, I think.

The cinema thing sounds fab! Though I dunno if it goes on local to me.

Been to a few parent and toddler groups - very clicky I must add! Thankfully I knew a few people from my antenatal class so catch up with them there sometimes. Also do lunch with a few of the noraml girls I met at antenatal. As for swimming, impossible with 2 babies and 1 mum!!!

Tried a music class to - unfortunately she was focusing on kiddies about 18 months so my 2 just got annoyed when she took their musical instruments away from them as they were only allowed to play with them for one song! Non stop screaming then! Boring, dull songs also - think I can do better prancing around the front room!

Hi Jess, i don't know if it works the same in England as NI, but here if you take a less than 1 year old to the library (and your kid joins) you get a free book starter pack.

The library near me does story time for little ones and 4-7s. Parent and Toddler groups are worth perservering with, they do take a month of going to begin to know anyone though.

Hope that is some help! Lol Lesa xxx
Keep smiling :happy:
