From hosting my baby shower to my kids first birthday to a safe and fun place for my kids to play at. My kids favorite ever
We have been coming with our son for couple years now. Love the atmosphere, classes, staff!
Bay & Bee is a wonderful place for children to learn, grow, and play! The store is amazing and carries all of our favorite brands. I love that there is someplace in town to buy & try on baby carries, get expert help, and which to refer mamas and dads that want to try babywearing
My one year old and I love going to Bay & Bee! We can literally spend hours there without either of us getting bored. It is such a relaxing atmosphere. I enjoy being able to chat with other moms while my daughter explores a safe and clean environment.
Recently relocated to Jax, Bay & Bee has been a place to connect with other parents. The environment is inviting for children to move about and play freely with manipulative toys and with each other.
What a great space to be together!
We love having a membership at Bay & Bee and having a peaceful indoor retreat to take the kids. Whether it’s too hot or too cold to be outside, or we just need to get out of the house, we love coming here to meet friends, attend story time or a music class, and wear out the kids for nap time! My daughter loved having her birthday party here. It was completely stress-free and there was no need to provide any activity because the kids created their own fun in the space. The staff is amazing and we love all the retail offerings too!
I found Bay&Bee’s post on Tula that they were running a Labor Day sale on Tulas. I called and place my order on Tuesday with Emily, and my tula arrived on Friday of that same week to CA. I had a great experience, and would order from them again!

She believes patients come first and building relationships is crucial to a healthy doctor/patient relationship.
I honestly don’t know what we would do on these hot summer days without Bay&Bee!
We go at least four times a week! My son loves to play and I love the adult company ;). We so enjoy going to music and sway and play and meeting new friends every time we go!
It’s nice to give my wife some alone time and leave the house with the kids. Bay & Bee has been great since I can watch both of them without being pulled apart in too many directions.
The weekends are great. We’ve met a lot of other dads. Pull up a chair to the train table and then bring them home for a nap in a few hours. Now if I could just figure out how to get them out of Bay & Bee without tantrums. Happy Kids, Happy Wife.
