**NEW**  Homesteading:  The “Beyond” Series—Homesteading is a lifestyle of self-sufficiency.  Is homesteading for you?  Each month our instructors will cover a different homesteading topic designed to help you become more self-sufficient!  Don’t have a yard?  There are still many homesteading practices you can put into play in your own home. Check out the full list of classes!

 

The Great Cloth Diaper Change is back—And we’re participating again!  Saturday, April 26, 10:30 am.

Join us as we add to the number of parents changing their baby’s cloth diapers, all in one day!  It’s about cloth diaper awareness, joining up with other cloth diaper families, and a heck of a good time!  New this year—your big kid can participate too!  Check out the info and get signed up on our Registration page. 

 

**NEW** Babywearing Group

The second Monday evening of each month at 7 pm.  Attend this free group for carrier information, instruction on how to use your own carrier, and to try out/borrow a variety of carrier styles.

 

**NEW** Postpartum Support Group

New moms need a safe place to discuss their transition to parenting a new baby.  Whether it’s your first baby or 7th, parenting each child is different.  This group provides a supportive environment to discuss fears, address concerns, talk about your birth experience, or ask breastfeeding questions.  Since the group is new to BB&B, all moms are welcome, no matter how long ‘postpartum’ you may be.  Meetings are held on the 4th Thursday of each month at 7 pm. 

 

Breastfeeding Support Group—The evening meeting meets on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 7 pm.  The morning meeting is held on the 4th Monday of the month from 10-11 am.  No registration needed!  

 

Cloth Diapering 101 is FREE!  AND held monthly on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 7 pm, and on the occasional Saturday.  Please register! 

 

Sit & Stitch Craft Days are on the calendar.  The next one is March 15.  Take some time for yourself and complete those crafts that you keep putting off!  Check it out!

 

 

Our E-News is sent quarterly. If you’d like to get on the list, please visit the Newsletter Sign-up page.

 

 

 

Classroom Etiquette: Because our groups can often get quite large—we politely request that you keep cross-talking

between parents to a minimum, so that everyone may hear the instructor. 

We ask that you please leave strollers and infant car seats in your car, as there is limited space. 

Please take time to become familiar with our Code of Conduct.   All families participating in classes, support groups and playgroups will be asked to sign into all events and acknowledge that they are aware of these policies.  Thank you.

Check our Calendar/Events page to find out about all the Playgroups, support groups and fantastic class offerings we have for you.  Register in advance for all classes. Classes that do not meet enrollment minimums within 48 hours of start time may be canceled.  No need to register for playgroups and support groups.
