Mommy and Me
Feeding and Pre-Speech Skills
For babies up to 9 months of age
Join us on October 5th at 9:00 am
This 45-minute Mommy and Me class will explore the following areas:
Seating - learn optimal seating positions for the first year of feeding
Stages - explore your baby's readiness for each stage of feeding development
Skills - learn strategies for cup drinking, spoon feeding, straw drinking, and self-feeding
Foods - identify appropriate foods to trial at different stages
One or both parents will be led through a combination of short presentations targeting each area. You will then be given opportunities to practice these skills with your child in a playful, fun atmosphere. Two licensed speech-language pathologists will lead the class.
All children and parents are welcome, whether you have concerns or just want to learn new ways to help your child.
Wear comfortable clothing and be prepared to have fun with your child.
Bring a spoon, cup, and straw.
$10 per family.
