Mothers-to-be and new parents with babies younger than a year old should diarise Saturday 22 August for the Johnson’s Baby Sense seminar at the Vineyard Hotel in Newlands.

Now in its 12th year, the seminars have become a vital and credible source of to-the-point information that helps parents navigate the deluge of parenting advice.

The Johnson’s Baby Sense seminars are designed to convey concise and expert information.

The parenting experts this year include Sister Ann Richardson (co-author of Baby Sense and Sleep Sense), Tina Otte (midwife and special editor of Your Pregnancy), Lizanne du Plessis (occupational therapist and author of Raising happy children), Kate Bailey (occupational therapist and early childhood development and stimulation expert) and Dr Welma Lubbe (registered nurse and advanced midwife with qualifications in neonatal nursing science).

This panel of experts will give parents invaluable information on a variety of topics that are close to a new parent’s heart.

In the morning session (08:30 to noon) experts will give mothers-to-be information on their baby’s transition from womb to world, the golden hour after birth and newborn basics.

The afternoon session is aimed at parents with babies younger than a year old. It will include information on stimulating your baby, sleep solutions and what it takes to be a brave mother.

A Johnson’s Baby massage workshop takes place between the two sessions and will teach mothers the benefits of sensory stimulation and provide tips for baby massage and how parents can communicate with their baby through touch and massage.

The cost per seminar is R240, and R60 for the massage workshop. Each person attending will receive a goodie bag, refreshments and the chance to win prizes. Mothers with babies under six months are welcome to bring them with.
