While the focus is often on mom before and after baby’s arrival, new dads and dads-to-be also feel overwhelmed by the changes happening in their lives. Sometimes there isn’t a strong support network available just for dads.
Do you have questions about your little one? Want to gripe about the sleep you’re not getting? Just looking to get to know other dads who can relate?
Just in time for Father’s Day, join us at Blooma (Minneapolis/Edina location) for a free, special evening where dads can gather, talk candidly and share stories on Thursday, June 14 from 7:30-8:45 p.m.
Special guests include members of the Roe Family Singers and a Q&A with Margaret McKinley Owens and Charlie Owens, instructors of one of Blooma’s newest class offerings. The class provides an eye-opening view into the first few day and weeks of life with a newborn — and answers many of the questions dads never thought to ask.
Your baby will adore your soothing, loving touch, while you enjoy connecting with your cutie during this bonding time.
Did you know that regular infant massage can also help baby sleep deeper and longer and relieve gas and constipation? Dads benefit tremendously, too — one study showed that babies of fathers who regularly massage them are more expressive and interactive with them during play times.
You’re welcome to feed baby by breast or bottle any time during class, as well as diaper change. Don’t worry: even if your little one is fussy or asleep during parts of class, you’ll still learn a baby massage routine to take home with you, plus you’ll receive handouts to take home.
Learn more about the class (what to bring, how to dress baby) and sign up now. Class is $18 per parent; feel free to use your class pass. My 6-month-old daughter loves her mama-baby massage time and yours will, too!
