Baby Sensory (The Ordinary Moments #22)

Early days at baby sensory

We started going to Baby Sensory when Toby was about two and a half months old. He has gone from being one of the youngest babies in the class to being the oldest. He’s also gone from lying and just watching and taking it all in to causing havoc! Now I can hardly keep him in one place long enough to do any of the activities and I’m always trying to make sure he doesn’t hurt any of the smaller babies when he’s crawling and rolling about all over the place!

Getting bigger at baby sensory

We love Baby Sensory though – there are lots of different activities and it’s been fantastic watching Toby as he develops and is able to interact and participate more. It’s been really interesting to see the other babies in the class getting bigger too; the older ones leave and then new tiny babies come to take their place. Toby loves the ‘Say Hello’ song (if you’ve every been to Baby Sensory you’ll know the one I mean!) and I often sing it to him if I need to calm him down or keep his attention. It’s quite sad to think we’ve only got a few months of Baby Sensory left. There’s only a couple of weeks then we’re on holiday, then there’s a few more weeks before the school holidays start here and there won’t be regular classes. Baby Sensory is for babies up to 13 months and then after that there are Toddler Sense classes. These have just started in our area and they look awesome (lots of inflatables to play on!) but the classes are only on week days at the moment and I’ll be back at work by then.

Anyway, I know this sounds like a bit of an advert for Baby Sensory but really going to the classes has just become an ordinary moment for us, which is why I’m linking up this post with Katie at Mummy Daddy Me this week.

  1. It’s so great to watch them grow up and explore more! I can totally relate to chasing after a crawling baby – once they start moving there’s no stopping them!

  2. These look great! I got offered a place on a similar one with the the twins but I couldn’t get there with just them and I was worried my 2 year old would cause chaos with lots of little babies, I’m hoping to make it to one when he starts pre-school in September! It’s lovely to see how he has developed in those pictures and it sounds like great fun for the babies, he must love it!

  3. Wow this looks great. Funnily enough with Mads we did so many classes and groups but the one thing my area didn’t have which I really wanted to do, was baby sensory. It looks great and Toby looks like he is having lots of fun. It must be such a worthwhile experience for him, so important to help develop these things. x

  4. This is so lovely. i wanted to do baby sensory but don’t have anything near by so definitely will start looking into it 🙂 xx

  5. Reading this brings back lots of memories, we went to Baby Sensory from O being 12 weeks and he loved it, plus it’s a really good chance to chat to other mums. Last year a Toddler Sense class started on a Sunday in our local church hall and I couldn’t sign up quick enough, it’s fab. Half an hour of soft play (although O only ever wants to play football) and half an hour of led activities which are great fun, alhtough you do get the odd moment as you’re dancing round the hall to some 90’s rave music at 10 am on a Sunday morning where you wonder what on earth you’re doing!? Lovely post x

  6. Me & my son also loves attending the local playgroup here. And there he started as the youngest. It is there that we learned to crawl, walk, play. It is an important part of us and we are thankful for it =) #ordinarymoments
