LITTLE MESS FAQ

What do I need to wear?

It is advisable, that both you and your child/ren wear clothes that you don’t mind getting messy. You will also need a towel and a change of clothes for your child/ren. A plastic bag to take home your dirty clothes and swim nappies are also recommended.

I've already paid, but can't attend. Is it possible to get a refund?

Due to hire charges and costs of materials, unfortunately we are unable to offer refunds. Refunds will be issued if a Little Mess Leader cancels sessions, due to unforeseen circumstances. Make up sessions are not possible.

I want to bring my two year old along, but I have a newborn. Am I able to bring them along too?

Babies in arms are free of charge. As soon as they are old enough to take part and join in with the messy fun, there is a small charge for siblings.

Can I take photos?

Yes, we want you to capture your messy play moments and would love you to share them with us! However please be aware that not all parents want themselves or their child in photos.

My child has never enjoyed messy play at home, how will this help?

Little Mess is group, social environment; this encourages cautious children to explore more. It is common for children to be a little unsure of new textures, but with a little encouragement and involvement from parents, this can be enough to give a child confidence to get involved. Messy play includes dry, soft and wet materials, which can be explored at a child’s own pace, installing confidence to explore all areas as the weeks go on.

Can I bring my partner along with me?

Yes, we would love you to share this experience with your partner, friend or family member. There is a limit of two adults per child.

LITTLE MASSAGE FAQ

My baby has a cold is it ok to massage?

If it’s a snuffle it may help, however if baby is unwell we don’t recommend that you should carry out a massage, and they usually wont want it anyway.

What if my baby sleeps during the class?

This is fine, you can watch or use spare doll to practice alongside. Then practice the strokes at home ready for when we cover them again briefly next week. It is important not to wake baby for massage.

My little girl just had her immunisations this morning she seems ok would it be ok to come to the class?

After immunisations, wait 24 hours, if she seems well then your ok to massage but avoid the injection site for the first week.

Is it ok to bring my twins?

Yes, this is perfectly fine. It is easier than you may think to massage two babies.

My babies 2 weeks old would that be ok in the group?

We recommend that babies start massage from 4 weeks old.

My baby is now crawling but I really want him to come along?

Our group sessions are for pre crawlers, however we do provide one-to-one sessions or home visits.

Your child’s usual necessities and massage oil if, it is not provided by the instructor.

My baby was born premature can I still come to the class?

Unless there is a reason that baby cannot attend yet and a medical professional has advised not to – it would be absolutely fine.

My baby suffers from eczema and my health visitor/doctor has given me an oil to use, can I bring this to use in the class?

Yes.

After the first session – in fact, during the first session, I started to notice a difference.

“What a wonderful idea. My daughter loves it and I bring her as often as I can. The experience she gets from it changes as she grows, when she first went at 2 months she just stared at the lights and it made her really calm. Now at nearly 7 months she wants to explore more and touch everything. The lady who runs it is absolutely lovely, and it has been great to meet other parents and babies.”
