As we look towards the start of 2018, I have more exciting news! I will be adding a second group to my offerings for families adding another baby to their crew. This is one of my favorite groups to lead, as the challenges of having a second newborn are so different than first time around. One of the things I love about this group is the opportunity to talk about toddler and older child behavior. I was just discussing with a friend the other day about how wonderful and horrible toddlers are. They are funny, creative, joyful, and totally unpredictable. All of these behaviors are magnified when they welcome a new baby into their home. No matter the age of the older child, we all know that sharing is hard.
Check out the description and registration below. I’ve also added the dates for my Winter 1 Getting Started group (see my Classes page). I am continuing my groups at Akasha in Roslindale, which has been a wonderful and warm place for these groups to grow.
Second Time Parent Group (For parents and second babies 0-6 months old)
Many say that adding a second baby to your family is an even bigger transition than the first time around. Come meet other second time parents for this 6 week series. We will spend time discussing the new challenges and joys of a growing family in a non-judgmental and supportive environment. Possible topics include: challenges with your older child as they transition to their new role as sibling, how to manage feeding and sleeping with both children, and reviewing typical baby patterns and developmental phases. We will end each class with a mini-circle time, a great way for you to bond with your new baby.
Note: I find most parents get much more out of the group if they can attend without their older child. However, if childcare for your older child is a barrier to attending, please contact me and we can discuss how to make it work.
