Mommy and Me Classes & Playgroups (For Daddies too) at The Pump Station & Nurtury™
The Wright Daddy and Me Groups
Jane Rosen, PhD
This class continues throughout your baby's first year. Each session consists of 8 weekly classes.
Hey, dads need a class too! They need to get together with other dads and find out that they're not alone in this new parenthood thing.
The Daddy and Me Group is highly interactive experience, with an emphasis on mindful parenting and a relational approach to optimizing your baby's development. This group meets weekly for 90-minute classes throughout your baby's first year. The approach to parenting is individual; access the wisdom of your instincts and heart, while calming your new parent worries about "getting it right." Find new and supportive friendships with other Dads and have fun, as you learn songs and play designed to nurture attachment and learning. Topics presented will reflect the needs of each group, and will include guidance for regulating your baby's sleep routine, feeding and developmental play.
Each week we will be covering subjects such as safety, soothing methods, sleep, teething, developmental play, feeding and much, much more. This class will also create an opportunity for Dad's to learn and explore this new world together!
