Sacrafices are made when you become a mom, no doubt as most of our time is spent taking care of our new bundle of joy so a lot of grown-up things are put on the back burners. As a new parent though, you need to remember to take care of you and continue to enjoy the grown up things.

Why not play hookie with the baby to see the latest blockbuster? Yes, bring your baby (and maybe even your husband) to the movies!

Movies for Mommies was created just for that - enjoying grown-up things, with your baby. Moms and Dads can enjoy weekly matinees at a baby-friendly cinema created just for them! Each location has change tables set up with complimentary Pampers diapers and wipes, just in case. Sound levels are toned down to protect little ears and the lighting is dimmed just right making it easier to nurse and bottle warmers are set up for those mid-movie feedings. There is plenty of space to park a stroller too, no need to worry about your gear because it'll be right there with you. Best of all, no dirty looks when baby fusses - we've all been there.

Movies for Mommies has monthly pre-show programs including free infant massage clinics, baby photos, baby signing demos and more! Each Movies for Mommies location has a demo table set up at the front of the theater filled with samples for mom and baby including Pampers Sensitive Wipes, baby food, baby snacks, adult vitamins and more.

Save the date! November 18th to 29th Movies for Mommies will have local baby photographers on site to do FREE holiday photos before the show! *Photoshoots and dates posted on moviesformommies.com. Photographers will provide proofs available for purchase.*

  1. My kids are all grown now, but I remember it was years before I finally took some 'me' time. I started to exercise early in the morning before my hubby went to work and before the kids woke up. Exercise was the best thing to energize me for the rest of the hectic day.

  2. I started looking around my community (library) for free classes to try. I would sign up and just tell my husband after work he was putting the kids to bed that night. it feels so good to walk away from the chaos that is preschoolers relax for an hour and then come back to peace and quiet before going to bed myself. I always find myself much more relaxed the next day and ready to deal with whatever they throw at me.
