Mr. Barnaby’s Baby Babble is a vibrant international community for English-speaking families with young children in Berlin.
We get together to learn and have fun, share knowledge and experiences of parenthood and find support and friendship for ourselves and our little ones. It’s this support and friendship that has given many of us a lifeline through the trials and tribulations of raising young children away from home, and transformed our experience of living in Berlin.
Mums and dads with children under the age of five comprise most of our members, including many new & expectant parents. We share the common goal of bringing up our children in the best way we can and strive to make our community a supportive, relaxed and friendly place - everyone is welcome!
On our website you’ll find a diverse range of fun and stimulating activities for you to take part in including informational workshops, playgroups, mother and baby classes, pre- and post-natal yoga and social events for all the family. Members are actively encouraged to suggest ideas for meet-ups or set up one themselves.
If you need a recommendation for a midwife, pediatrician or a babysitter, have baby items for sale or would like advice on the best shoes or suncream for baby, check out our message board. We also distribute a monthly newsletter to all our members packed full of ‘Baby in Berlin’ news, tips, resources and the inside scoop on what’s going on around town for you and your little ones.
Founded in June 2009, today we have grown into a community of more than 800 families from around the world with English as the common spoken language. We very much look forward to you joining us too!
“Joining Baby Babble transformed my experience of being an English speaking mum of two little boys in a strange city. It certainly helped ward off feelings of isolation, alienation and boredom. It got me moving and getting to know the city and has been great fun. Baby Babble has also been a great source of information and support.”
"Being more or less brand new to Berlin when i was pregnant, Baby Babble was not only a wonderful resource for learning about having and raising a baby here, i also don't know what I would have done without the fine ladies that I've met through the group."
"Thanks to Baby Babble, we are not alone here."
“It's warm and welcoming in this group! Mr. Barnaby's Baby Babble is an excellent way to meet other moms from many countries and to make friends for yourself and your little ones. You should join us!”
“Finally there is a professionally-run group, run by a gorgeous gal, that attracts a like-minded bunch of English speaking mothers, who are all experiencing what life in a new city with small children is like. It isn't easy, and having the opportunity to meet people if and when you need to makes a lot of difference.”
