The Benefits of a Bedtime Story

The Benefits of a Bedtime Story
Psychologist Anne Fernald said that the effects are so profound that talking to children should be treated with the same importance as feeding them. And it is never too early to start. Dr Fernald said: ‘If you want your child to do well in school then talk to them as a baby. ‘If you bring a child into the world, we take on the responsibility for feeding them, keeping them clean and keeping them safe. ‘I think we now have enough scientific evidence to add something else to that list – and that is providing a level o...

Is my baby eating enough?

Is my baby eating enough?
It's is quite natural for parents to worry about whether their child is getting enough food, especially if they refuse to eat sometimes or get labelled as a "fussy eater" The trick is not to worry about what your child eats in a day, or if they don't eat everything at mealtimes. It's more important to think about what they eat over a week.As long as your child is active and gaining weight, and it's obvious that they are not ill, then they’re getting enough to eat, even though it might not seem like it to you.

The term "baby brain" is often used by new mums when they forget things or seem a little out of sync - but is it actually a condition, or simply a combination of sleep deprivation and changing hormones?

Why does my baby cry?

Why does my baby cry?
 It’s a question that new mums ask me all the time.  I recently appeared on “Good Morning Britain” talking about deciphering a baby’s cry and I believe it is possible to learn to understand and recognise them. There is a growing body of research to support my belief that you may be able to decipher your baby’s cries. Having worked with babies for many years I truly believe that this is possible and I am confident in my ability to recognise the different messages that our bab...
