CHK’s Big List of Activities/Classes for Babies lists, at the time of this writing, 21 different classes you can do with your infant here on the Hill. When I was a new mom on maternity leave, I loved having a couple regular activities on my weekly schedule. The classes gave me:
- Practice in getting out and about with baby
- Opportunities to meet other local parents and make friends
- Special bonding time with baby
We enjoyed Mr. Mike’s Music Together, baby and tot yoga with Breathing Space, PACE (a support group for new moms), a tour of the U.S. Botanic Garden and a baby sign language workshop. I only more recently started going to library story time with my now-preschooler, but those are also a good fit for babies. I’ll post reviews for some of these excellent activities in the coming weeks and months.
Let me know what you think of the list. Contact me if you know of any additions!
