Our classes are the safest places to be if something is bothering your baby. We are all moms and have dealt with fussy babies and cranky children at some point in class! Your child will most likely not be the loudest or noisiest in class that day. ;)
Some of the "veteran" moms have great tips/tricks for babies at all ages. One popular suggestion is to bring a front carrier with you to class for younger babies. Children under the age of five must stay in the stroller for the duration of class. For toddlers and older children we recommend bringing some toys, snacks or other items to keep them entertained. Our instructors are great at offering modifications for all exercises while carrying your baby, as well as providing exercises, songs and activities to include the children.
Stroller Strides is one of the few places you can bring your child to workout, so our first priority is the happiness of your baby. Feel free to tend to your baby first; nurse/feed your baby at any station if needed, change a diaper if necessary, administer snacks. We stop every few minutes for body toning, you can always catch up with us if you get behind. If your baby ever fusses so much that you miss an entire class, we will happily credit you another class. Our instructors will do their very best to make the class enjoyable for both you and your baby!
