Listed below are all fellow businesses who are run by lovely people (just like us) and they have wonderful classes or products available. Click on the images for more details.
Pipsqueaks Play Cafe in Orrell has it all, soft play for bigger kids, soft play for babies, a baby sensory room, a cafe, groups such as Jo Jingles and of course, the star attraction, one Monday a month there is us! Check our calendar for dates times and any changes.
The Pitter Patter Clinic in Windle is a very exciting addition to our venue list. A gorgeous clean and welcoming venue filled with very clever practitioners and run by Kellie who is an infant feeding and tongue tie specialist. We're there once a month on a Wednesday.
Mamars At The Old Bank is in Warrington Town Centre, they make their own fresh bread in store (and the gorgeous smell of it means at least one sloth generally ends up purchasing a loaf to take home!), plus they have speciality cheeses! And all the usual cafe excitement like tea and coffee! And one Tuesday a month the sloth descend, wrap some babies, talk about cloth nappies and come home smelling gloriously like baking bread! Check our calendar for dates and times.
Momo's in St Helens is a cafe that strives to make a difference in the community so you can imagine we fit in well! So much goes on at Momo's it's hard to sum up, there's history talks, gaming night, the Connect Toy Library (for children in St Helens with additonal needs), a knitting group and, of course, one Wednesday a month, your favourite sling and cloth nappy library! All that and I haven't even mentioned the spectacular food and drink they've got (and every purchase helps them to keep supporting the St Helens community!)! Check our calendar to find out when we're there and come join us!
The Old School is a converted Primary School close to Warrington Town Centre. We meet here one Saturday a month (generally the first Saturday) in the community room. Lots of other things go on at The Old School on different days so check out their calendar!
Standish Library is at the heart of Standish and where else should a sling and cloth nappy library visit but a book library! This library is extra special though as they have a small children's centre attached with a sensory room. We meet there one Monday a month in the children's library and the breastfeeding group meet in the sensory room at the same time!

Melanie Clough is the amazing midwife behind Mums the Word and here is their philosophy: In a nutshell, maternity matters. It matters to mums, dads, babies and the whole family. It matters that mum and baby are healthy, it matters that they are well cared for by knowledgeable, caring professionals, it matters that they feel happy and secure, it matters that they feel empowered and reassured that "they've got this", it matters that they have access to education about pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and childcare. Our motivation for care is that mums matter. Mum's the word! https://www.mumsthewordmidwife.com

Bumps & Bashes
Hello, I'm Kate, I'm a Fully Qualified Instructor, and mum and I am totally independent. I've been teaching easy-to-remember First Aid to parents since 2009. 99% of past attendees think this course is Excellent. I believe learning first aid should be enjoyable, understandable, and most of all memorable. Once you become a parent and after buying all the exciting stuff, it's now important for everyone who takes care of their little ones to learn how to save a life, in a modern world. Emergency first aid is rare and scary, but not knowing what to do in an emergency is terrifying. My courses have saved lives.
