No Babysitter? No Problem.

Posted on

Once you have a baby, you quickly realize that things are going to change around the house.  Your new responsibilities leave you less time to do the things you used to do. Don’t get us wrong…it’s all worth it…but you still need to take some time to do the things that make you happy.  For us, it’s going to the movies.  Getting a babysitter and staying up late to catch a movie with friends or your honey is really difficult with a new bambino.  Arranging feeding schedules so you can make the opening credits to a late show is almost impossible.   No need to miss out though, because Empire Theaters has this fabulous program for busy parents so that they don’t miss out on all the fun and new movies too.  It’s called Reel Babies and 2 times a month you can see a new release movie in a super baby friendly setting.  Just how baby friendly is it?  Well, the volume of the movie is lower, the lights are semi dimmed and they provide bottle warmers, change stations, play mats, baby swings and exersaucers so that you can enjoy the movie to it’s fullest.  We also love that it’s a totally breast feeding friendly event.  Many places are these days, but there is something extra friendly about it when you are in a room full of new mommies that are feeding their babies too.  We also think it’s pretty cool that you get to vote on what movie your theater will play.  The Reel Babies web site is very easy to navigate and voting is a cinch once you register ( we just voted on Footloose for next week…fingers crossed!).  So what are you waiting for mamma?  No need to get dressed up.  Just check out your local listing s on the web site, call up some mommy friends, pack up your diaper bag and sit back and relax at the movies.

Want to win a double pass for you and a friend to experience Reel Babies?  Leave a comment on our Facebook page telling us what movie you want to see with your baby.  It’s that simple.  We’ll end the contest November,1/2011 with  2 random draws.  Open to Canadian readers only.  Good luck mommies!
