The classes are designed to offer gentle aerobic exercise, stretching and toning for parents and their babies, 6 weeks to 2 years old or up to the age where parents feel they can support their child's weight in a carrier, sling or wrap.

Sling Consultant Nicole will be on hand for the taster session to fit slings and carriers comfortably. Note: there will be plenty of spares to borrow for anyone without.
