Baby’s First Year Programme with the YMCA

Is your baby between 0-12 months? Do you want to get out of the house with baby and make new friends? Are you interested in learning about your baby’s first milestones? Rock the Cradle and the YMCA Westmount / YMCA NDG have teamed up to bring you 10 exciting and interactive classes for you and your baby, focussing on baby’s development. Each class is given by a professional in their field.

Here’s a list of what you’ll be learning (note the order of the classes may change):

  1. Baby Massage – Learn the benefits and basic techniques of baby massage to help soothe baby and bond with baby
  2. Move with Baby – Parent and baby yoga class
  3. Baby and Music – Sing and explore new musical sounds with baby
  4. My Baby’s Sleep – Understand your baby’s sleeping patterns
  5. Baby Sign Language – Learn the benefits and basic techniques of baby sign language to better communicate with your baby
  6. My Baby’s Safety – Learn about baby proofing and keeping baby safe
  7. My Baby’s Food – Learn about weaning baby to solid foods, including the baby-led weaning technique
  8. Elimination Communication – Learn the basics of potty training, including the ‘elimination communication’ technique
  9. Baby-Wearing – Learn all about the benefits and basics of carrying your baby.
  10. Q & A with Rock the Cradle Doulas – Ask all your parenting and birthing questions to our experienced doulas  (we have 9 children between us and have assisted close to 175 births!)
