What Everyone is Saying About

We had so much fun at the Halloween messy play! There was lots of different things for my daughter to play with and was great to be able to bath her after in the little baths! I highly recommend, We are looking forward to the next one!

I thoroughly recommend little messes for those who are starting weening, having trouble weening or just want to have a bit of fun with your little one!! I took my son to little messes when he was 6 months old because … well … the boy wouldn’t eat!!! I tried everything!!! When we went to little messes he loved it (and still does at 10months old!!) It gave me confidence to do more baby led weening, gave me lots of ideas on what he liked, how to cut certain foods and how to make meal times fun!!! Two weeks of little messes and my son was addicted to food!! The first thing he ate in his highchair was spaghetti … an idea from little messes!! Now he will eat anything, not phased by taste, textures or smell!!

The girls are lovely, accommodating and reassuring to those who are worried about weening or have any questions!! The themes each week are amazing and there’s so much thought and preparing that goes into it. It was above and beyond my expectations !

The bath and fluffy towels afterwards are great and the girls are always around to help as it can be quite challenging bathing a moving (incredibly messy) baby when your covered in food as well!! Oh yeah …. word of advice …. wear old clothes

Absolutely brilliant, my daughter loved it all, so much to explore without the worry of making too much mess – really well run with friendly and helpful staff. We’ll definitely be rebooking.

I heard about Little Messes through Facebook and wish I’d have heard about it sooner! My daughter used to pick up food and feed herself and then stopped despite constantly trying at home to get her to do it. During her first session at Little Messes she was touching the food (a little hesitant at first) and even eating it by herself. This progress has continued at home. I can’t thank Little Messes enough.

Arthur loved his session at Little Messes in Hitchin. Not sure how much he ate as he was having too much fun splashing me and the other babies with the food! Such a fabulous idea and ingenious way to introduce babies to different foods and textures. Will definitely be back and telling my friends about it!
