These lovely ladies and their babies, toddlers and preschooler's joined us today to get our Kanga on! We had 3 sleeping bubs, 2 toddlers who decided part way through they would prefer to hop down and one Mumma with an older toddler who played independently while we sweated and puffed our way through the workout. Plus 2 preschoolers/school kids who danced alongside us with their own 'bubbas'.
At Kanga we can meet all our kids needs as required, at any stage we are at. The flexibility is what we all need especially at the moment, while keeping our bodies fit, our mind calm and some routine going.
All babies are so different. Some sleep well from day one, others are still waking multiple times overnight years down the track. Some are happy to play on the floor, others demand to be held all the time. And of course they like to change the game just when you think you have things sorted.
I try to remember to keep it gentle and supporting for all parents when chatting about our kids, we never know the struggles another is going through.
💕 I love that she talks about ‘carrying’ as in in arms and in carriers and how they are both amazing!NEW EPISODE: THE BENEFITS OF CARRYING BABIES AND CHILDREN (WITH ZOE WOODMAN)
Carrying babies and children is biologically normal.
In this episode, I’m joined by sling consultant Zoe Woodman, who combined her passion for slings with her psychology background to educate parents on the many benefits of carrying their babies and children.
Zoe explains how neuroscientific research supports carrying as beneficial for both parent and child for bonding and breastfeeding (due to the release of powerful love hormone, oxytocin) and supports both mental health, and infant brain development.
Kanga online this morning and Miss 4 asked to go up instead of dancing with me today 😍 off I went to grab my toddler Ankalia carrier, super comfy with knee to knee coverage for her. I was a bit dead from squats on especially when Miss 6 requested a harder squat move 😅 don’t mind the face, she was using my hair as a microphone singing along and screaming “Yay!” In my ear.
We don’t follow much sport in our house so being able to show the kids a large range in one go has been great. The kids favourites are gymnastics, sailing and basketball so far. Personally I am excitedly waiting for the Karate to start next week. ... See MoreSee Less
Kangatraining Kids fun! We have enjoyed a jungle adventure and a dance party this week with Rhiannon, it has really helped us get through the week. The girls get to be creative and active, doing something special together.
With these ‘bitesize’ classes we can pop them in as a school break too, without falling behind for the day.
