New mom and baby movie program

Taking oneself and a baby to a baby-friendly movie theater is one of our favorite milestones of maternity leave. It requires you to leave the house, challenges you to practice feeding and changing in a public location, but also provides the support of a dark room and fellow new moms (aka crying babies) to remind you that you’re not the only one doing this.

We are always on the lookout for new mommy movie showings and were delighted to learn that the AMC theater chain has partnered with pregnancy mega-site The Bump to present Bring Your Baby matinees.

These special showings will be on the first Tuesday of every month and feature a baby-friendly environment: brighter lights, lower volume, and boobs, bottles, bulky strollers, and crying are welcome.

Here  is the list of participating theaters.

If there is one near you, will you do us a favor and “like” this post at the top?
