TOGETHER with their mothers, five of the Snowy Mountains's newest residents attended the CWA Jindabyne Mums & Bubs last Thursday in the hall of the Jindabyne Branch of the Country Women's Association (CWA).
These free weekly sessions for 2013 began with an interactive and informative discussion on 'sleep and settling' with Community Health Nurse Sue McPhie. Some of the other topics to be covered during the coming weeks include baby massage, baby speak, day care, first aid for bubs, childhood illnesses, physio for mums, immunisation, nutrition for bubs, anxiety, nurturing and the brain, baby's teeth and other challenges facing mothers.
All mothers and infants from the region are welcome to attend Jindy Mums and Bubs which is held between 1 am and 12.30 pm on Thursdays, at the Jindabyne CWA Hall (beside the Fire Brigade Station) Thredbo Terrace.
One of the 135 mums who participated in Jindy Mums and Bubs during the four years it has been operating was Kate McDiven, who said, "Every single topic in the program was highly relevant and interesting. Eme and I feel so lucky to have participated. Every week I had to miss, we were both disappointed. Thank you greatly, CWA, for all your efforts. You have made the experience of being a new mother thoroughly easier".
