Our volunteers and peer supporters have been out and about helping parents enjoy time with their babies this summer.
If you’ve been to a festival this summer with your baby, chances are you might have popped into one of our NCT Baby Feed & Change tents.
From Camp Bestival to Glastonbury, from Buzzstock to Devafest and the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta, our NCT volunteers have been staffing NCT Baby Change and Feed tents, so babies (and parents!) can come and chill out, freshen up and feed their baby in a welcoming space.
We want to give a big shout out to our volunteers for being there when parents needed it (anyone who’s ever tried to change a nappy in the middle of a busy field will know what we’re talking about!)
Meanwhile, in East London, our Parents in Mind service held a T-shirt making event for dads and partners to come along and get stuck into creating a T-shirt, while bonding with their baby.
Imran Ali, ran the event, told us it was a lot of fun. He said: “It was wonderful to witness the enthusiasm and creativity for the event and the project itself.”
Would you like to see if there’s any parent and baby groups run by our volunteers happening in your area? Put your postcode into the search field on this page and see how you can connect with local parents.
