Buggy Fit mums club….and still we experience every season in a day. We have taken cover in church porches and pub car parks at Buggyfit- I know, the mind boggles.

We have chatted Brexit/remain in between sets of lunges, who should take the country into its new chapter and where best to spend a Sunday afternoon with kids. So if you have a favourite Sunday afternoon spot for the family come rain or shine, please share it with us, and we will try to make a visit. Message us at BuggyfitHQ facebook page.

Have a great couple of weeks, and get out and about as much as you can. More importantly get to your Buggyfit class and give it some welly. You will be paid in results for your effort.

The Benefits of Reading, and what age should I start reading to my little one? By Emma Redding

Reading is something you can do from birth. Ok, not a fully-fledged Enid Blyton, far too tired for that, but a fabric book or board book that baby can eventually learn to hold.  I can assure you I had 101 things to try to get done before reading to my baby, but certainly once we wanted to establish a bedtime routine it became part of the quiet time.

It’s true, when you read to children, they’re getting your full attention, and that’s what they love. When they are young they enjoy the big pictures and the sounds or different sensory feels- mine love the ‘That’s not my…… ‘ range from Usborne books.

Reading to babies is also a good way to introduce them to the sounds and rhythms of speech, which is crucial for language development. With that in mind, here’s an age-by-age guide to getting your kids hooked on books.

“Reading is also a great way for fathers, grandparents, and older siblings to bond with the baby. Studies show that children who are routinely read to from a young age develop improved language skills and increased interest in reading, which helps improve their readiness for school. Try to make reading part of your daily routine with your baby—for example, at bedtime. You can start out reading for a few minutes at a time, and extend to longer reading sessions as your child grows older and develops a longer attention span. Find a comfortable place to read and turn off other distractions such as the television or radio. Make the story come alive by using different voices for different characters, and even acting out parts of the story. “
