Baby Cots

Choosing where baby can sleep can at first seem simple, but with so many different choices, it can become a minefield. We take a look at the most popular designs to help you choose which is right for you.

Safest Sleeping Position
According to The Lullaby Trust, the safest place for your baby to sleep is in a Moses basket or cot in the same room as you for the first 6 months, even during the day. Your baby should be placed on their back for every sleep, both day and night.

How to prepare for weaning

As last week, 6-12th May was National Weaning Week, we take this opportunity to have a look at ways to prepare for weaning and the different approaches you can take.
The World Health Organisation recommend exclusively breastfeeding your baby for the first 6 months and the UK Health Minister supports this view. If you can’t breastfeed or choose to use formula milk to feed your baby, then this too is advised exclusively with weaning recommended from 6 months.

Your baby will now be fully formed with all organs developing and will be approximately the size of a peach. You should also start to see your stomach grow in size as your baby starts to put on weight.
