Sling Meet: Castleknock, Dublin 15 on 20/2/14

Thursday 20th February 2014 from 11am-1pm
Castleknock Community Centre, Laurel Lodge Road, Castleknock, Dublin 15

A sling meet is like a coffee morning with other parents/ mums-to-be, but everyone brings their slings along, and there is a babywearing consultant present with a stock of slings for you to try.   If you have a new baby and you are interested in buying a sling but don’t know where to start, this meet-up is for you!  It’s also great for parents of older babies who are looking for some new ideas with e.g. back carries or woven wraps, or moving from a regular size carrier to a toddler or pre-school carrier.

Castleknock Community Centre is a friendly and well-run centre.  We have a room hired with mirrors which really helps when trying new ways of carrying your baby.  A cup of tea is just €1, so come along to meet other local mums  and hang out with us, drinking tea and trying new slings.

Babywearing Ireland is a not-for-profit organisation providing information and support to anyone using or interested in baby carriers and slings.  Admission €3 voluntary donation towards room hire.

There’s no need to book.  Just come along.

Baby Massage Classes in Castleknock 10/2/14

Spend quality time with your baby learning how to give your baby a massage, and meet other local mums for friendship and support.

I will teach you strokes that are safe and appropriate for you to massage your baby, so that you can enjoy it as a regular activity at home.

The massage class which I teach was developed by Vimala McClure who is the founder of the International Association of Infant Massage and is taught all over the world.

You can be sure that you are receiving a quality class as I am accredited by the International Association of Infant Massage and am a member of Baby Massage Ireland. This also means that you can claim back up to €100 off the course cost from your insurance company.

I have a first class degree in psychology and philosophy and a masters in womens’ studies which along with qualifications in counselling skills, first aid, teaching and over 13 years of experience teaching adults means that I am well placed to teach the course.

As a sling consultant I offer help at the end of the class if you are considering getting a baby carrier or sling.
