Getting out with your baby has never been easier!

Feeling a bit nervous about getting out with that tiny human for the first time?

It's O.K. We totally get it - we were there, too. It can seem overwhelming to pack up the diaper bag and head out into the world with your baby!  What if they fuss? What if they need to eat?  What if you have nothing to talk about other than baby toes and dirty diapers?!

Don't stress! Join the New Parent Club. 

The New Parent Club is what we wish we had during the first months with our babes!  Somewhere to go where we wouldn't have to worry about being judged for being the beautiful hot-mess that we often are for a while after bringing that sweet baby home. 

Hello Baby New Parent Club Peterborough

Hello, Baby! is the ultimate baby-friendly place to come and hang out, learn, and shop. We LOVE babies - even the fussy ones - and more importantly, we love to support new parents. We have worked hard to create a space where you can leave those worries at the door and just let it all hang out! But we know it can be hard to just walk in somewhere not knowing who will be there or what you will do so... we created the New Parent Club!

  • A parent + baby group that runs for 6 weeks at a time
  • Socialize with other parents + let your baby explore other tiny humans
  • Talk with parent + baby lovin' health and wellness professionals about the BIG issues like sleep, nutrition, mental health, keeping yourself and your baby healthy naturally, and gentle postpartum activity (yoga!)
  • Cozy up in a safe, inclusive, judgement free space

Taking those first steps can feel HUGE... but we are here for you!

The New Parent Club is the perfect place to get your feet wet. Small groups, #realtalk, baby friendly, and so much fun; you are definitely going to have a great time. At the end of 6 weeks you will have new friends, some awesome parenting #lifehacks and a ton of confidence for your next adventure!

Get more sleep with less fuss

Understanding how you can help your baby get the sleep they need so that they are rested, happy, and healthy is a top priority for just about every parent!  How much sleep your baby gets impacts how much sleep you get, right?  #teamnosleep
