babytalk la provides a supportive and fun environment where parents learn about taking care of their infants & toddlers, and also build life-long friendships with other parents who have children close to the same age.
The babytalk la program gives parents the information to understand their babies’ developmental needs and the confidence to feel good about how they are responding to them.
The program focuses on the most useful and relevant discussion topics for each stage. Specialists, such as doctors, are brought in to present on important topics including infant care, sleep, health, preschool, nutrition and other parenting issues.
We also incorporate music, movement, massage, and other activities for parents to do with their babies. This is a unique model that combines the best of both worlds for new parents–the chance to hear directly from experts in the field AND the opportunity to bond with other parents over similar issues.
It is a safe haven where you can discuss the pros and cons of different approaches, where parents don’t have to worry about being judged. The setting is intimate, confidential, respectful, and fun!
The babies benefit from this early socialization with other babies close to their age and dedicated time with mom or dad. They get to practice their tummy time, rolling, crawling, pulling to stand, and eventually, walking! And they get to try out a variety of clean, developmentally appropriate toys.
Our meeting spaces are in Beverly Hills near Wilshire and La Cienega and near Olympic and Doheny, at Turning Point School in Culver City, and and Westwood Presbyterian Preschool in Westwood. We also run groups in private homes. Meeting time depends upon the age group. Please submit an application online and someone from babytalk la will be in touch to let you know what is available. We encourage you to sign up early, as groups tend to fill up quickly.
