    Baby Café: DiscussionTopic: Travelling with Children

    Summer is almost here and you just can't wait to get out of the house. But let's face it, whether it is taking a flight, driving your own car, or taking public transit, travelling with children takes planning and preparation. What is your packing checklist to keep your young ones comfortable and entertained? How do you feed your babies in transit? And how do you enjoy family fun things without interfering with their sleep?

    Come share your stories and tips of what worked (or what didn’t) for successful travelling with little ones.

    "Schedule" for the morning: We sing some silly songs with the kids, then we let the kids/babes play with the babysitters while we have our discussion/hear from someone.  After the "learn & discuss" time, we have a snack and just hang out until 11:30ish.  There are volunteers who take care of our little ones and provide the snack so we can rest a bit.  We're in the room right next to the kids while they play so we can hear them, but the great thing is someone else is taking care of them!

    Registration: Free

    Join us in an awesome stroller bootcamp lead by Certified Personal Trainer Melissa White! Melissa is a mom herself and understands the struggle of postpartum recovery all to well; she will be there with you every step of the way!

    While making new friends in the fresh air, you can move your body, get a little sweaty, and leave feeling energized as baby naps in the stroller. This workout is completely safe for postpartum recovery and perfect whether you just had a baby now or years ago; the workouts will be modified to fit everybody to ensure they are safe, comfortable, and challenged. You can do as little or as much as you want, and baby is your first priority so if you need to stop to feed, soothe, change, or anything else, it's not a problem and you can catch up as soon as you're done! 

    The class is ONLY $5 and payable in cash upon arrival. If the weather is bad, the class will be cancelled and we will send an email out to all those registered the morning of (this is why it's important to register EVERY WEEK YOU WISH TO ATTEND), post on our fb page, and write it in this description as well. 

    *There will be free grab bags with samples of baby stuff and coupons*

    What you may need:

    Water bottle

    Running shoes

    Comfortable clothes

    Baby snacks/toys/bottle

    Baby carrier (incase baby gets fussy)

    Come and enjoy the great outdoors in Oro-Medonte! We'll spend the morning feeding, interacting with and learning about chickens! There's also toddler friendly slides and climbing structures - bring a blanket to spread out on the lawn to watch the kiddos play! All ages and stages are welcome.

    Once you register the address will be provided in your confirmation email so be sure to check your email! If you'd like to bring a "treat" for the chickens - they LOVE your table scraps - fruit/pasta/anything that's not too hard for them to eat. Bread is not ideal as it's not very nutritious for them but they are happy to have a little!

There are areas of the property that are under construction so will be off-limits to everyone. Please remember to take any garbage home with you.**
