Helping children use eye contact

They say the eyes are the window to the soul and when we first hold our precious newborns in our arms, we can’t help but look into their eyes. After nine months of waiting, we finally get to meet the little soul who was growing inside us. Staring into their eyes for the first time is nothing short of magic.  Indeed, eye contact is a crucial part of building your child’s social skills, so you...

Reflux in babies can be a really stressful issue to navigate.

Choosing to bottle-feed your bub can be fraught with complex emotions. While fed is 100% always best, as mums we often can’t help but beat ourselves up if our breastfeeding journey doesn’t go to plan. Maybe you had grand plans to feed for the first 12 months of your baby’s life but he had other ideas. Maybe you just wanted to make it to the six-month mark but your supply didn’t play ball.  Often it’s...

Sleep choices for your baby: Understanding your options

Sleep is one of the most precious commodities and if you ask any new parent what their number one battle with a newborn is (apart from trying to remember what day of the week it is), they’ll probably tell you it’s the elusive world of baby sleep.  When it comes to sleep, there is no one-size-fits-all approach because every baby is different. But being informed and doing your research will empower you to make the...

What the TOG?! Understanding TOG ratings and layering for sleep in winter

Ensuring your little one is dressed properly for bed can be an art form. Are they too hot? Too cold? Are they comfortable enough? Because our babies aren’t able to tell us how they’re feeling, we have to do the guesswork for them and it’s even harder in the cooler months to make sure you get the balance just right.  If they sleep through the night (can we get a hell yeah 👏), you’ll do...

Feeding marathons, bodily fluids and night sweats: what to expect in the days and weeks after birth

When we think about the early days of parenthood, it’s hard not to let our minds wander to the more picture-perfect moments.

7 ways to make breastfeeding easier in those early weeks

So many of us go into motherhood planning to breastfeed, and not truly understanding what’s involved and how hard it’s going to be (because how could we?) Often we’re sold on the benefits of breastmilk (and rightly so, it’s liquid gold!) and the beautiful side of it without truly understanding what it takes to breastfeed. Because even though breastfeeding might be one of the most natural things there is – that doesn’t mean it comes...
