Previous attendees said:

“Provides you with all information needed to confidently wean your baby” Sarah. Didsbury

“Very informative. Practical but strongly evidenced based” Mum, Manchester

Really informative, very encouraging. Easy to ask questions, very collaborative” Imelda, Stockport

“I highly recommend Aliya’s course.  Very engaging and a much easier way to take in the information than reading websites and parenting forums, which tend to give slightly conflicting information. The other half and I both enjoyed the sessions, and I felt more confident with my decisions afterwards. My baby’s 12 months old now and we still refer back to her notes sometimes. I also liked the personalised approach that took into account the foods we liked.” Mum, Manchester

I offer face to face courses in the Manchester area (subject to Covid restrictions) and courses over Zoom too.

I can offer courses to a couples online if there are not enough parents for a course – please enquire about prices
