Mommy (or Daddy) and Me Classes

mommy and me classesLiving with babies and toddlers can be overwhelming when you are constantly worried about feeding, naps, changing, and chasing them around. Mommy (or Daddy) and Me classes can be a great source of enrichment for the little ones and a great way for you to socialize. They also give you a reason to get out of the house and get a breath of fresh air!

After my son came home, he had a lot of appointments, so we were constantly running around. At around seven months old, I decided to enroll him in a Music Together class. It was such a nice relief to get out and take him to something fun where he could relax and enjoy, rather than a doctor or therapist visit. Then when my daughter was ready, I enrolled her in classes at Music Together, and my husband took her swimming at the YMCA. This created a nice schedule in our house, and we looked forward to these activities with the kids. 

Our town library also became a wonderful place to visit, and I’ve met some great friends from going to classes there. Most libraries have free story time programs for babies and toddlers. They are such a great resource. Please take a look at your local library’s children’s programs to see what they have to offer!

There are so many Mommy (or Daddy) and Me classes available in Fairfield County. There may be something for you based on what you are interested in or what you might think your little one would like.

  1. Can you attend these classes if you are just a seasonal renter in Westport? Do you have classes and support groups for mothers of multiples?

    • Hi Gail,
      I would imagine so, some may just have some summer sessions. You can always call and ask for a trial class as well. I believe there is a twin moms group at Willow Pediatrics, you might want to give them a call. And if you sign-up for a class ask about a twin discount, some locations give them. Music Together definitely does which is great! Also, quite a few of us who contribute to FCMB are twin moms as well, including myself. Please feel free to reach out with any questions!
      Thank you,
      Caroline
