Are you new to Prague and have young kids? Or are you expecting a baby? Perhaps you are new to parenthood would value meeting up with folks in similar circumstances? If you like the idea of friendship, advice and support from other English speaking families look no further than Bumps, Babies and Tots. This community group have been organising regular meet-ups and social events for parents and young kids for over a year now and have recently grown to include toddler aged kids too.
As I know all too well there is only so much support you can receive from books, the internet and long distance family members helping you deal with those life changing first few years. Essential for me was finding a group of mums going through similar experiences who could empathise, support and help me with the many questions that I had.
So I fully endorse Bumps, Babies and Tots for parents (or soon to be parents). The group allows you to make new friends with others who are sharing similar experiences to yours. It’s also an opportunity to share information on childbirth and services and a forum to discuss individual experiences on postnatal topics such as immunisation programs, breast feeding, weaning, colic etc. Fathers and older children are also welcome (the group have even held weekend meet ups so all family members can attend).
BB&T also organise regular Girls Nights Out and Baby Swimming Courses in English. Currently there are no swimming courses on offer but the group are planning to organise a venue and teacher soon. Check out the BB&T website where you can find out about baby and tot courses as well as the regular meet-up dates and locations. Join the group and participate in their online forum to find out what is going on around town.
There are now two weekly meet ups, one for bumps and babies, the other for toddlers. The comfy environs of Kafe Kakao or Postu Cafe and The Little Mole in central Prague are the chosen venues which allow your children the opportunity to freely mix together in pleasant indoor play areas.
WHEN: Monday afternoons at The Little Mole, Prague 2; Tuesday afternoons at Kafe Kakao, Prague 2 or Postu Cafe, Prague1 (venue alternates each week)
