Ages and Stages: Baby 3-6m

Sometimes life after those first three months postpartum can feel kind of lonely. The excitement of a new baby in the family can begin to wear off, visitors start to dwindle, and partners are often back to work. This can leave mom feeling a bit isolated and at a loss of how to engage her little one with their ever increasing need for interaction and development. Come join other moms and babes to connect, learn, grow, and support one another through the exciting time between 3-6 months of age! Beginning to laugh, giggle, sit up on their own, get teeth, and begin solid foods, this is a period of incredible growth for both mom and baby
