Chloe had her very first session at Gymbaroo yesterday and absolutely loved it! It was so great to touch base with her development and learn how to encourage her next milestones. I also really love the special quality time with my precious little bear, as I know all too well how quickly this bubba stage will pass and soon she will be on the move.
I first discovered Gymbaroo when Ava was just four months old (you can read more about it here) and it’s still the best activity we’ve done together.
Up until now I’ve been doing an online video series developed by Gymbaroo called Active Babies Smart Kids with Chloe Bear at home which has been fantastic. It’s free to Australian and New Zealand residents which is just amazing! It’s such a great resource for new mums and mums of little bubs, and is particularly good for parents who live in rural areas of Australia and can’t get to a Gymbaroo centre.
The video episodes cover the how and why of important developmental areas (from tummy time to baby’s balance along with visual development, baby massage, exercises, crawling and more) and include chats with early childhood specialists.
The Let’s do BabyROO section of each episode is designed so that parents can join in with their bubs and do the baby exercises, dances to music, baby massage, activities to help with visual development, hearing and speech, baby balance and so on.
I really love setting aside quality time each week to check in with Chloe’s development and have fun interacting and engaging with her without any distractions. They are only little for such a short period of time and I just want to soak up every second.
