Nursing Moms’ Groups

Lactation Support Groups

Along with your new little bundle of joy comes a ton of questions and concerns for nursing moms. Who better to connect with than other mamas who are going through the same thing! Kangaroo Kids’ Lactation Support Group is the perfect place to make friends with those who share your breastfeeding journey and are facing similar challenges. Enjoy conversation, share tips and experiences, get advice, find encouragement, and relieve your anxieties. The Lactation Support Group is facilitated by one of our certified lactation specialists, but the main focus is on mother-to-mother support. Bring your baby and come join us every Thursday at 12:30pm and every Saturday at 10:00am. It’s FREE! And don’t worry if you’re late—we’re always on “baby time” at Kangaroo Kids.

Baby Massage

Baby Massage  

Research has shown that massaging your baby helps him or her sleep better, relieves colic, and may even enhance his or her immune system, motor skills, and intellectual development. Join Suzanne Tucker, PT and Certified Educator of Infant Massage, for this fun and relaxing class. All you need to bring is your little one and a favorite blanket. All ages are welcome but newborn through pre-crawling babies seem to enjoy this class most.

Infant CPR

Infant CPR

Do you know how to help a baby with a breathing or choking emergency? Our Infant CPR class will prepare you to perform CPR on a newborn baby up until their first year, as well as how to help a baby that is choking. Grandparents and babysitters are also encouraged to attend to learn these safety basics. The Infant CPR class is taught by St. Louis American Heart Association instructors.

Cloth Diaper 101

Cloth Diaper 101

When it comes to cloth diapers, do you know which end is up? Cloth diapers today are very different from what your grandmother used. If you are considering or have decided that cloth is the way to go for your baby, you’ll need to get savvy on the basics of choosing and using this natural alternative. “Cloth Diaper 101” will answer all of your questions. Join us for this FREE class to learn about the benefits and types of cloth diapers, as well as how to wash them at home or how diaper service works.
