What is Babalini?

Babalini Baby Stimulation Groups offer you the opportunity to spend quality time with your baby once a week while having fun and learning how to stimulate your baby age appropriately. The programme is aimed at babies between 3 and 12 months. The approach is holistic and covers all areas of development. The sessions are 1 and a half hours long, which include teatime for information sharing and getting to know each other.

Each session will include

Stimulation of the senses; vision, hearing, touch and movement with colourful equipment, toys, music, tactile activities and fun exercises.
Exercises and games to encourage the development of gross motor skills; motor milestones (rolling, sitting, crawling, standing, walking), balance and coordination.
Exercises and games to encourage the development of fine motor skills; movement and strengthening of hands and fingers, grasping and coordination.
Exciting equipment and toys to stimulate your baby age appropriately indoors and outdoors
Ideas of toys to make or activities to use to stimulate your baby at home
Support and valuable advice from moms who know exactly how you feel!
The programme has been devided into three developmental phases;
• 3 – 6 months
• 6 – 9 months
• 9 – 12 months

This is to ensure that your baby will be stimulated age-appropriately with activities suitable for his/her developmental stage.

Come and enjoy your baby! Watch how your baby masters new skills and get lots of ideas of activities to do together!
