What Mums Are Saying About Blooming Kids NI

“I really can’t recommend these classes highly enough! We did one set of baby massage, then one set of baby yoga, and we loved them so much that we have signed up for another set! Classes are great for bonding with your little one. Naomi is really fantastic at her job, such a lovely personality and so welcoming. It’s also great to meet new people and mix with other mums. If you have a new baby sign up to blooming kids NI!”
Shauna Keenan, Tobermore

“Just finished our second course at BKNI and can’t recommend it enough. I found it quite difficult to find local activities for Rachel and myself that we could actually engage in due to her age but blooming kids was just perfect for us. The baby massage, reflexology and sign to music course is not only brilliant for helping with symptoms of reflux and teething but also great fun. Naomi is very welcoming, friendly and super at her job.”
Ruth McDowell, Magherafelt

“Just about to start our 3rd Eco Tots course. Cannot say enough good things about this class. We absolutely love it. So much fun and very educational…. mummies even learn a thing or two. Lots of friends and memories made at these fabulous classes.”
KerryAnne O'Loughlin, Magherafelt
We started baby massage at 3 months old for 5 weeks followed by baby yoga classes for 5 weeks. Loved both the classes! Couldn’t recommend them enough! My wee one loved it too and it was great having a cuppa and a chat with naomi and the other mummies after it!
Brenda McGlone, Moneymore
These are fantastic classes. Kate & I completed two 5 week blocks & we loved it. The baby massage is great for calming your baby & Kate loved the music & craft in the classes too. Naomi is great, so friendly & welcoming. This is a must for any mums on maternity leave.
Judith Hamilton, Desertmartin
We’ve really loved our baby massage class! So much so we’ve signed up again! Amazing bonding with baby and great little tips to help keep baby happy and comfortable. Ive also taught it to hubby at home and he loves it too! Can’t wait to try the other courses when Sarah is old enough!
