What are we?

Just like our antenatal classes, Daisy Baby® really turns tradition on its head. Gone are the familiar infant massage or baby yoga routines, as we embrace an amazing class plan devised over 7 years of research, which really understands a baby's needs and what works in those early weeks.

We understand that in those first tentative weeks baby needs to be in your arms and in them quite a lot! By bringing together positive touch, baby yoga inspired movement, movement for mum and relaxation into one complete class with lots of opportunity to have babe in arms, mums find they are usually able to participate for longer and with more enjoyment! And when baby feels it is all too much, our beautiful white noise lullabies soothe them off to sleep.

Daisy Baby is all about Active Bonding (completely baby led of course).

It combines our much loved baby sun saluation routines, getting to know each other exercises, soft movements and relaxations for mum and baby, white noise exercises, social baby time, alongside vital education to help you understand the 4th trimester.

By delivering techniques which can really have a positive impact on sleep, colic, calming, mums well being, postnatal anxieties, all within a friendly and intimate group surrounding, mums feel more empowered, more energised and ready to face the world!

Our teachers come from a variety of backgrounds professionally but are all mums, so can talk firsthand about their experiences of bringing up baby! All are fully trained.

But what makes us truly different, is that this Tinies class is set to our own beautiful 1hr 30minute backing track designed to appeal to baby's sensory needs (especially written and produced by local composer and production company) to enable you to flow from segment to segment, pausing to enjoying lyrical cuddle time or sleepy time, even when baby isn't in the mood to participate actively.
Key Features

Our teaches are fully trained in IPTI approved infant massage, movement for baby plus having a variety of specialisms such as 'sleep consultant' and 'baby wearing consultant. This is far more than a traditional baby massage class however!

KEY BENEFITS INCLUDE: A completely natural and gentle step from Daisy Birthing to Daisy Baby with teachers, music and flow all feeling so familiar - like curling up in an armchair in your favourite pair of slippers!

We're accessible for all mums, not just the mums and babies suffering with colic!

We're fun ..... Our learning is serious yes, but our class is relaxing, refreshing and friendly.

We provide a community of like minded mums all wanting to talk about the positives of bringing up baby and celebrating all choices (all types of feeding, nappies, parenting attitudes are MOST WELCOME).

We're affordable with this combined education costing just £9 per week.

•Your baby won't need to lay on their back for extended periods in order to participate (so ideal for babies who need cuddles, or babies with reflux). It doesn't matter if baby cries .... and even when this happens our lovely calming techniques really tend to soothe them so quickly.
•Techniques can help common ailments like colic, reflux, tight neck (torticollis) and flat head

New Baby Classes like Never Before! 54.00 for 6 classes and ongoing terms

Just as a new baby has arrived in the area, a new baby class has arrive in Wallingford and Oxford for yoga babes, mums and their chums. It’s called Daisy Baby! And it’s sweeping the nation with it’s soothing and gentle strokes!

If you’re the type of mum who likes a little bit of everything and who likes to have her cake and eat it, then this is the baby class for you.  It’s the class your baby really wants to go to because unlike any other baby class it caters for all their development needs, and let’s not forget your needs, we value those too! Let your baby be a Daisy Baby and see them grow into your happy, healthy little one! (And yes there is actually free cake included, so you do get everything you want and more from a Daisy Baby class). Oh, and no need to feel guilty on the cake because the class helps your tummy flatten back again, in time for another baby!
Too good to be true? No! And it’s  actually on your doorstep!  Because Daisy Baby classes can come to you.

Introducing Daisy Baby - No other class offers such a comprehensive wellbeing programme in this area for mum and baby, from 6 weeks to crawling.

Expect active-bonding that utilises movement, breathing and relaxation for a positive and confident parenting experience.  Expect a massage routine for your all child's health needs, with baby reflexology too.  Expect a sensory journey of tunes, sounds and words.  Each weekly class involves positive touch, yoga style stretches, white noise, music, beats, words and rhythm.  So no, it’s not your average baby yoga massage class at all!

Daisy Baby merges traditional baby bonding techniques and provides a classroom environment which is sympathetic to the needs of mum and baby.  A Daisy Baby teacher empowers mum and baby.  Classes are baby-led, supporting baby’s needs, not fighting against them.   Nothing is too challenging.   Daisy Baby classes offer time to watch, study and become aware of baby’s language so that we can understand their needs by creating timely and appropriate responses.  Better responses means less frustrating parenting.   We avoid rigid mat work styles and instead of laying baby on their back all of the time, we attune to baby, and observe and learn baby’s visual and auditory cues that tell us when they need to be held, cuddled, moved or have a need for containment. We avoid overload. We never force, always move with the body and respect resistance. We never over stimulate infants and have alternatives for baby if they are reluctant to join in.  We never have the pressure of over lengthy massage segments.  No need to remove baby’s clothes! And mummy never feels left out, lonely, inadequate or a failure. There’s always a way of joining in. We raise self-esteem. 

Dr Harvey Karp (author of The Happiest Baby on the Block) once said: It’s intuitive to want to calm your baby; it’s not intuitive to know how.  Daisy Baby teachers know what calms a baby and the Daisy Baby class introduces parents to the simple steps of how to switch on the calming button, like an off switch for crying!

Traditional classes focus on the physical causes of common ailments and conditions such as colic, reflux, sleep and intolerance, whereas Daisy Baby focus on the emotional causes too to bring about therapeutic benefits. Daisy Baby provides coping holds, strokes and techniques for challenging times. No other class offers a release for a baby with flat head (torticulis). Daisy Baby classes show you moves to free any possible neck tightness which could restrict baby from turning at the neck.

Attending the Daisy Baby classes help to aid and develop attachment with baby and help alleviate post natal depression.  The classes can help with brain development and weight gain including premature babies. We strengthen the digestive system and nervous system, improve skin condition and circulation.  The touching techniques improves muscle tone, bone growth and respiration to name but a few.  Our strokes help to wire the synapses of the brain, aid communication and enhance feel-good hormones.  Mum feels better too! 

Daisy Baby techniques deepens and regulates the breathing and increases the level of oxygen in the blood stream, which leads to deeper sleep and is great for fussy babies!  

By allowing baby to enjoy movement and exercise during the first few months of life, Daisy Baby classes help to integrate primitive reflexes displayed during the fourth trimester to assist the development of balance, posture, voluntary movement, visual functioning and perceptual skills.  For example after time, the Daisy Baby classes gradually see the Moro (Startle) reflex disperse, which is why we pride ourselves in growing happy babies. 

The quality time out together in a Daisy Baby class provides:

·         time for mum and baby to move with soft stretches

·         baby massage which provides astonishing emotional and developmental benefits

·         positive touch for mum and baby which provides wellbeing for mum and baby

·         mother to mother support to share positive and negative feelings and reassurance that baby is normal with a forum for keeping in touch

·         an environment designed to help mums ease into understanding their baby, get to know their baby and feel confident in handling them

·         lots of repetition so mums can digest the knowledge and carry on beneficial techniques at home

·         vital education on the calming reflex and how to switch it on

·         vital vestibular stimulation for baby

·         familiarity of routine, ritual and recognised exercises when everything else seems unfamiliar

·         a safe haven  of familiarity and continuity of care

·         an opportunity to relax and learn how to relax

·         a chance to let go of fears and celebrate mummyhood

·         postnatal exercises so mum can reconnect with tummy,  tone her abdomen, work core stability and help core strength

·         a time to rest - the relaxation time allows mum to feel good and proud about her body and her role as a mum

·         a spiral of joy where a happy mum creates a happy response from baby, creates a happy mum and the spiral of joy continues

·         a time to laugh and have fun

·         a chance for mums and babies to release happy hormones and relaxants to promote a restful after class sleep!

What’s more, the Daisy Baby term is inexpensive - only 54.00 for 6 consecutive weekly classes, cheaper than others in the area. 

Now that you realise that Daisy Baby is the all-encompassing class for you and baby, reserve your space by emailing or call Sue on 07799411994.
