Bring along a baby

Bring Along a Baby

Bring Along a Baby is an informal, relaxed, accessible chamber music recital of the highest standard, aimed primarily at parents, while babies or very young children sleep, feed and play.
There is no pressure to keep still or quiet, leaving parents free to sit back and enjoy the music. In fact, we encourage the babies to interact naturally with the music, and we have play mats and soft toys to this end.
Of course, the babies benefit from the music as well, so it’s a win-win.
When: Monday 9th Jan at 12.30 (the earlier session has already booked up)
Where: John Field Room. The National Concert Hall – Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin 2
How much: Adults €13, children are free
Ages: Suitable for babies and their adults

baby-massage

Do you or anyone you know have a baby and would like help with relaxation, relief, stimulation and bonding?

Then why not consider joining a ClapHandies Baby Massage class?

They are run throughout the year in various locations. As well as being a great course, you will meet other parents who live locally and have babies of a similar age.

You can also use your health insurance cover to reclaim the cost of the course (in most instances)

View more details and dates on our Baby Massage website.
