Little Munchkins is a local business run by mum Helen, there are two sides to the Little Munchkins brand: Baby Massage and Face Painting. Helen tells us a little more about herself and her businesses below.

“I run 5 week Baby Massage and Baby Yoga courses in Newbury at Wonderland Soft Play. The course is friendly, relaxed and fun where you learn not only how to massage your baby but also how to strengthen their core muscles to help with their development and then have fun with your baby while you are doing it! The course also includes a massage pack to take home so you can fully massage your baby by the end of the five weeks and add it into your daily routine. Each class is 45 minutes of massage, yoga and sensory development.

Baby massage has many benefits for both mum and baby. It is really beneficial for reflux and wind or tummy problems. It can help with settling babies as it can relax and soothe them to aid sleep and general relaxation. We also incorporate elements of baby yoga to help strengthen core muscles and to help with muscle development. There is some sensory fun at the end to help develop your baby’s core motor skills with bubbles, feathers and chiffon cloths.

As for me, I am an Antenatal teacher based in Newbury and have been running Baby massage and Yoga classes now for 4 years. I have been working with new mums and babies in this area for a number of years and often bring my experience and knowledge to the classes. The classes are relaxed, friendly, fun and very informative and a great way to meet other mums with similar age babies.

As for face painting – I am an experienced face painter with over 5 years’ experience of working with young children. I run the Parkway pop up craft shops over the Halloween and Easter holidays and have featured on the Great British Bake Off at its finale party. I am used to painting at large or small birthday parties, weddings, fetes and corporate events.  I can paint up to 25 children in 2 hours and I also bring glitter tattoos in case some children do not want their face painting. I can also offer hair braids and badge making at an extra cost.”
