Sensory Babes is a small family run business based in Bedfordshire. It was created by me; Amy, when I decided to become a stay at home Mum to Esme in January 2021.
As a first-time mum, I threw myself in to joining mum groups to meet new friends and to get out of the house to keep sane (as most new mum's do). However when lock down hit, I found myself at my wits end trying to keep my little one busy! I started to do a lot more sensory play (rattling my brain from my previous work) which we both loved and Esme was curious and mesmerised by all the different activities I found myself coming up with.
I could see how much Esme got from sensory play; how much it benefited her development, how much it benefited me as a mother and how much it helped us to bond. I wanted to be able to share this with other families who were also struggling for ideas to entertain their little one during lock-down, and to be able to do these activities from the comfort of their own home.
This is what inspired me to set up this business; to provide other parents with the opportunity to recreate sensory play at home at an affordable price. To support their little one’s development and to help Mum's and Dads who may be struggling after birth to bond with their new babies.
In regards to my history, I have primarily worked with children since the age of 16. In my most recent years (the past 8 years prior to having Esme) I have specifically worked with children who had behavioral and sensory issues and additional needs. In all aspects of these job roles, sensory play was vital and helped the children developmentally and emotionally.
I am hoping to build this little business to something which families and baby groups will recommend.
