Massage Classes

Baby massage has become one of the hottest classes in the past few years, centering around the idea of calming and relaxing your baby—what sleep-deprived mom wouldn't want that? But infant massage is so simple that you probably don't need a regular hour-long class to reap all the benefits. Instead, some warmed baby lotion and circular rubbing motions on your tired baby's skin can suffice. Save your money for a relaxing massage for you instead.

Movement Classes

Is your little wiggle worm the type of baby that needs constant stimulation? A movement class can be perfect, especially if you're unsure of how to really play with your baby. Usually set in bright, stimulating gyms, you'll learn how to bounce, crawl and scoot with your baby as she explores different stations in the gym. By watching your baby, you'll know what type of movement interests her so you can test it out at home. Time to make a blanket fort!

Only you know your baby well enough to know which type of baby class she'll enjoy the most. If she prefers calm and quiet, a relaxing yoga class might be best. If she loves high-energy activities, a music or movement class might be better. While signing up for classes won't turn your baby into a tiny Einstein, they give you valuable time to play and learn together, which might spare you some much-needed sanity at home.
