Baby B Edition: Baby & Toddler Classes over the North East.

This post features an list of baby and toddler classes and sessions: some run weekly and some may run on a term basis.

As many of you’s know I have just had a baby and we are wanting to share our moments with you from a range of classes to events and baby friendly places. I will eventually be able to write from a mumma’s perspective now.

I have gathered this information over the last few months and our Baby B post are becoming really popular, Therefore I have created a post that will be updated regularly and kept up on the site.

If we have been gifted or paid for advertising an event, it will state (AD) beforehand. However, This is many of the companies we have worked with in the past or present, They may have also been posted into our recommendations group – this could of been by the company themselves or by someone who has enjoyed their event before. 

We try to update our post as regular as possible but please bare in mind – Events may change details, cancel or be sold out during this time.
