One of the wonderful things about having our own venue is the ability to hold extra events. The Pudding Club is one of these. The Pudding Club is a special antenatal class devised by Jen and Gill. We know that conventional antenatal classes and programmes are often geared towards preparing for labour and delivery, so we don’t spend much time talking about birth. What we are interested in is what happens next.
After all these months of growing and preparing you suddenly have a whole new person to get to know. And no one warned you they would have opinions!
At the Pudding Club we talk a lot about normal newborn behaviour and what to expect from your little one. Jen will give a run through nappy demos including different types of nappy and how to use them, and some useful tips on routines and methods. Gill will show you a variety of different slings and some tips on how/when to use them. We also chat about breastfeeding and will answer your questions as best we can on all these subjects.
But I nearly forgot the most important part!! To help sustain us all through the evening – we will bring a selection of homemade desserts to enjoy while we chat!
We welcome couples for £20 or individuals for £12.50. If you’d like to come along message us here, and we’ll look forward to seeing you this Thursday (14th June) at 7pm.
This week is Real Nappy Week! It’s all about helping you make the changes to cloth nappies and learn a bit more about them. We have our usual sessions at The Baby Room – Nappuccino on Wednesday 9.30-2 and Friday 12-2.30 plus the NCT group (non NCT members also welcome) on Thursday from 1-2.30. The highlight of the week will be the secondhand sling and nappy sale on Saturday from 10-12.
To Buy: Come along to The Baby Room between 10 and 12. Pay £1 on the door and get shopping! Have a cup of tea or coffee and keep shopping! Jen will be on hand to give nappy advice, and Gill for sling advice. When you’re ready to go head for the till and pay! Cash only please so come prepared!
To Sell: Bring your items to The Baby Room at 9.00 am (or bring to any of our groups on Wednesday 9.30-2, Thursday 1-2.30 or Friday 12-2.30). Label them clearly (stickers are easiest) with your name, description of item including brand/size etc, price.

Come back at 12 to collect your remaining items and your cash! We ask sellers to make a donation to The Baby Room from their takings (suggested donation 10%, more always welcome!) If you choose to you may donate your remaining items to us. We will sort through what is left with us, and depending on the condition we may keep it for future sales, absorb into trial kits or library, donate to other charities or recycle. But one way or another it will not be wasted!!
