When baby makes three (or four or five), Mom and Dad have a lot to manage. It’s okay to ask for help and support, and have a little fun every now and then. We found essential services to make life with a little one easier. Flip through our album to see which people and places every new parent in Chicago should know about (and bookmark … and have on speed dial!).

To Flex Some Baby Muscle: Bubbles Academy Pre-Crawler Class

Any milestone for baby is exciting, like pushing, pulling, rolling over, reaching and sitting up. The Pre-Crawler class is taught by the incredible Ms. Kim, who encourages your baby to want to reach to new heights. Each class includes learning experiences such as tummy-time, stretching, balance and core strengthening, four-point crawling pose and expert guidance from Bubbles Academy teaching artists. Several options are available to best fit your schedule, as well as your wallet.
