Super informative & encouraging!

Britney, elementary school teacher and mother of two boys

“I love how Carly made the information so practical and spoke as a mom. She provided anecdotes about reading less with a second child and being kind to yourself as a mom. I find that to be so important and it really resonated with me. I appreciated learning a bit of the research behind the strategies. I liked how Carly demonstrated the songs with her baby so you could see how she interacted with her. Of the 14 songs Carly taught in the class, 95% of them were new for me, which was great. I would definitely recommend this online course to a friend. I found signing up and using the platform incredibly easy. It was easy to follow and super informative.”

So helpful!

Crystal, mother of a 14 month old

“I found the tips for what to say to babies helpful! I am one of those who struggles with this. I would definitely recommend this course to other moms, especially for the songs and conversation tips! We've been singing the toaster song, and I pause at the end and she 'jumps' and it's so cute!”

Loved learning new songs - I'm not musical!

Allyssa, mother of a 9 month old and 3.5 year old

“I didn’t know any of the songs Carly taught in the course, and I loved it learning new ones as even I was getting bored of the same old “patty cake” and “round and round the garden”. I am not very musically talented. I really have to plan it out, so it was great having this many songs at my disposal to interact more with the baby. Especially since he’s the second kid and life is just busier! This course is an amazing resource.”

So helpful for a first time mom!


“I already went though and completed the whole course during my son’s nap times today. So incredibly helpful & so many wonderful ideas! This has been a blessing to me as a first time mom.”
