If you’re looking for unusual gifts for babies then a course of baby yoga sessions is a great idea.
Yoga for babies is enjoying a wave of popularity at the moment and is a great way for mum and baby to bond with each other. It introduces both mental and physical stimulation to the baby by teaching mum gentle exercises and movements that she can do with the baby.
It is a fabulous way for mum or dad to bond with the baby. Classes are held in relaxed yet lively atmospheres and encourage the parents and baby to relax whilst also making the baby more aware of their body. It also builds confidence in the parents about handling their baby as initially they may feel all fingers and thumbs!
There is also evidence to suggest that baby yoga can help to soothe baby afflictions such as poor sleeping patterns and the dreaded colic. It stimulates digestion ensuring babies don’t suffer from gripes and wind. Other benefits are that it speeds up the development of muscular coordination.
Baby yoga is designed to be fun and classes are designed around rhythm, movement and song. Parents can then introduce baby yoga into the daily routine of play and wind down time before bed. Mum can also benefit as some classes have sessions for mum specifically.
