Spending time with your baby does not have to mean hours of passive observation. Every moment you spend with your newborn should be as collaborative as you want it to be, while keeping your mental and physical stimulation in mind. Here are 8 establishments that recognize the balance of mother-baby bonding.
Mommy and Baby Fitness Workout and Play – North York
With a location at Ross Lord Park during the summer, this outdoor stroller fitness group is a great way to get fresh air with your baby and focus on your own conditioning. There are a number of other classes available including pilates, as well as indoor activities in the fall.
Stars and Strollers – Yonge and Eglinton
Catch a movie in a baby-friendly environment. The theatre is cool, the volume is lowered, and there is ample room for strollers. Most kid friendly movies these days are just as enjoyable for adults!
Mamma Dances – Danforth
Yoga Babies and Family Yoga – Leslieville
Yoga Mamas offers yoga classes for moms, mother and child, mother and baby, and for the whole family. Why not try relaxing with your baby for a change?
Water Babies – Baldwin Village
AGO Hands on Centre – Downtown
Get creative in a more hands on way at the AGO. Go with a fellow mom and spend half your day building and storytelling, and the other exploring the art galleries for yourself.
Oaks n’ Acorns – Junction
The Children’s Storefront – Little Italy
