Marin Mom and Baby Classes and Groups

by Darcy Alkus-Barrow  

 

Having a new baby opens up a whole new world of day-to-day planning: between naptimes, changing, burping and feedings it can be tough for Mom to get active or even get out of the house!  Luckily here in the North Bay we have a ton of "Mom and Baby" type activities for Marin Mothers to hang out, make friends and introduce their babies to all sorts of  stimulation and fun. 

 

Below find both a recurring weekly activity list for mom and baby available on a drop-in basis (which is what I found to be easiest with a new baby!)  - no commitment required for maximum schedule flexibility, as well as a list of great "Mom and Baby" classes you do need to sign up for available throughout the year.  

  

 

Please double check days/times/prices as classes may change.  Also, this is a list geared towards moms and babies - but if you have a toddler or older child, check out Ronnie's List!

 

 (And a big shout out to my Southern Marin Moms Club "First Time Moms Q4 2013" group for helping compile this list!)
