Baby Play


Mar 28 2023


10:00 am - 11:30 am

With a goal to support first-time parents or those who are caring for an infant, the Museum staff, and several early childhood expert volunteers will team up to offer content specific to our birth-two age range.  Although topics such as sleep, development, feeding, and parent-child bonding will be selected and promoted for each session, parent questions will often take center stage and steer the conversation to wherever it is most useful for families. Join us for a come-and-go format in our Community Room.

Special focus for the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month are:    

  • 2nd Tuesday: Lactation and feeding support 
  • 4th Tuesdays: Mayo Clinic Health System Family Medicine Providers on site 


Supporting Families Through Baby’s First Year

Around the baby’s first birthday, this Membership will lapse and you may transition to another Membership level.
