Many of you will already know the lovely Kelly and Ally at TinyTalk Baby Signing & Toddler Talking / / Portsmouth & Southsea but some of you may not have come across them, so thought I'd give them a shout-out today!
Tiny Talk classes are all about learning to communicate with your baby through sign language. Learning to sign can help your baby let you know what they want/need, and help to avoid frustration and upset. Tiny Talk use British Sign Language and you can start from any age. Initially you'll be modelling it and using it with your baby, but you'll soon find they start to use familiar signs regularly.
If you'd like to know more go give them a follow and have a chat to find out where and when classes are available!
*** THE FINALE! 7pm tonight. ***

This is it! The very last TinyTalk Together session, supporting families through lockdown. And we end on a high with a gorgeous Bedtime Story read by Kelly John, TinyTalk Baby Signing & Toddler Talking / / Portsmouth & Southsea

32 TinyTalk teachers have taken part, whether going live with a morning mini-class, or recording themselves telling a bedtime story or singing some late-night lullabies.

Head over to our YouTube TinyTalk Baby Signing Video Hub to watch the story with your little one at 7pm this evening.

I mean…… this is genius in my eyes?! Up there with having the mini ring paddling pools filled on the beach for babies to splash in!

Do you have any genius parenting hacks?!


🥳We’re back on Tuesday🥳

😍Oh I do love a montage 😍

👀Check out the progress of super star Thea signing milk over the last 2 months!👀

Signs can be so delicate to start with and won’t always look *exactly* correct. It’s tricky for our littles to coordinate body parts in those early days!

I found it was a really lovely way to encourage me to stay present with my boys and pay attention to what they’re doing 🥰

Steph has captured those moments so well with Thea here, those early days could easily have been missed!

Couple of spaces left in our 11.30-12.30 class on Tuesday in Southsea, drop me a dm to get booked on 💜💜💜

Fab list from lovely Emily of all the local library groups 😍😍😍

Unfortunately I am down with a pretty decent case of Laryngitis, day 4 of no voice 😩

I am therefore delaying our start of this half term until TUESDAY 8th MARCH.

We will still be running for 6 weeks, with our last week being in the first week of Easter holidays. I will send welcome emails later this evening, apologies for delay, I was waiting on confirming the extra date with the church.

Any issue with this extra date we can either refund that last week or roll the class to next term 💜

Please tag any friends who are attending too 💜

Sorry everyone, see you in a week 🥰

💜small biz love💜

Another wonderful local birthing biz is the lovely Claire over at Queen Bee Birthing who can get you super prepped for birth with hypno birthing courses and workshops 🥰

🐝H E L L O🐝 I’ve had quite a few new followers this week (Hi! 😉)... so thought I might re-introduce myself... 🐝 I’m Claire, and I run Queen Bee Birthing in Clanfield, near Petersfield. I absolutely LOVE teaching my Hypnobirthing & Birth-Prep Classes to all expectant parents and help them discover their inner-strength and confidence to totally BOSS their birth!

I’m Mummy to 3 busy kiddos, age 9, 6 & 2, and also had a baby for our friends as a surrogate a couple of years ago too! I’m mega-passionate about all things birthy, especially Physiological Birth and knowing your birth-rights. I’m proudly part of the committee at and love getting involved in all the events…

Things you should know about me: I love dancing with my husband at weddings, I can say the alphabet backwards, and I’m incapable of going to bed before midnight 😂

I often jump up and down with excitement at the prospect of helping others have a positive and empowering birth - a great day to remember for the rest of your life...

Feel free to say hi in the comments 🤗

Claire 🐝



💜small biz love💜

Next up is the wonderful Kim over at South Coast Placenta. I was fortunate to win an encapsulation package at an Informed Pregnancy, Birth & Beyond event and was so chuffed as it was something I was really considering. I also chose to add on the smoothie! I can honestly tell you I had so much energy, felt great and my milk came in days quicker than first time. Kim offers a wonderful service 💜

HAPPY CLIENT- Full testimonial.

I actually met Kim after the birth of my first born… I instantly wished I’d known about placenta encapsulation and the potential benefits before having him… I had a terrible birth and despite using my own trade (nutritional therapist), it took a long time to recover.

I sent many clients to Kimberley as she was/is so passionate about what she does (and so she should be!). Everyone told me how great they felt after having their little ones, so when I fell pregnant with my daughter booking Kim was one of the first things I did. I’m so glad I did.

If I were to have another baby, I would 100 percent have my placenta encapsulated again; the difference in recovery was incredible.
Despite having no sleep and now two children to look after I felt energised, my skin was clear, my milk came in with no issues, I felt sooo much happier, I didn’t have any blues at all post birth and overall recovery has been amazing.

Not only that, but Kimberley was incredible too, she was so supportive throughout pregnancy and postpartum!

If you are in any doubt, don’t be! Thank you again xx

💜 Hot drinks and choccy biccies!

Ending our week with this super signer Thea! Thea started signing *milk* for the first time this week.

You can see that little right hand moving in and out while she’s clearly watching her mama (and making some rather excited vocalisations too😍). It’s also a great example that sometimes their coordination when younger can make noticing their signing a bit trickier, but luckily for Thea her mummy Steph is being super present, watching and noticing 🤩

Way to go Steph and Thea

Do you want to join us for March/April?! We’ve got a few spaces left and would love to meet you 💜💜💜 drop us DM!
