My baby has a cold, is it okay 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 won’t
want it anyway.

What if my baby sleeps during the class?
This is fine, you can watch or use a 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 and she seems okay. Would it be okay to come to the class?
After immunisations, wait 24 hours. If she seems well then you’re okay to massage, but avoid the injection side for the first week.

Is it okay to bring my twins?
Yes, this is perfectly fine. It is easier than you may think to massage two babies.

My baby is 2 weeks old. Would they be okay in the group?
We recommend that babies start massage from 4 weeks old.

My baby is crawling but I would really like to bring him along?
Our group sessions are for pre crawlers, however we do provide one-to-one sessions or home visits.

What do I need to bring to the class?
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?

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, preparation and overheads, payment is non-refundable.

Transfers may be given with 7 days or more notice, subject to availability and with discretion from your Little Sensory Leader.

I want to bring my 3 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?
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.

What age is the Sensory Room for?
Our sensory room is suitable from birth, to pre walkers. In some areas we offer sessions for toddlers, siblings and those with special needs – please check with your leader. If you are attending a sibling or toddler session, please be aware there may be newborn babies on the floor and equipment that can be knocked over.

What happens in the Sensory Room?
Our sensory room is parent led. It is a magical room that is set up for you and your child to enjoy. It’s a wonderful place for relaxing, bonding and meeting other parents, whilst helping your child with their sensory awareness and development.

What is the Sensory Room?
Our room is full of stimulating, sensory equipment and toys for you to explore with your child. There are lights at various speeds and different colours, projectors, optic fibres and bubble lamps and much more.

Do I need to bring my own yoga mat?
No we provide all yoga mats, but please bring a blanket for your baby to lay on.

Does baby take part in the yoga?
A lot of the yoga moves incorporate baby also.

Can I bring my partner or can they come in replace of me?
Yes, however our yoga is designed for mum and baby, as it is focused on postnatal exercise and regaining strength after birth.

Can I bring my older child along as it’s half term?
Yes of course, it’s great to see the bond between siblings at yoga.

What should I bring?
A picnic blanket, travel cup with lid, baby carrier and suncream if hot weather.

What should I wear?
Please wear clothing that’s suitable for the weather conditions on the day. We are usually in wooded areas which can be muddy.

What happens if it’s raining?
We provide sheltered areas and sometimes make use of halls or rooms when needed. However we like to try to stay outdoors as much as we can! If the weather conditions are to bad to run the class or workshop, we will contact you prior via email.

Can I bring my other child?
Please contact your leader to discuss ages and what is suitable.
