Our What to Expect After You’re Expecting Workshops cover a huge gap in mainstream antenatal education, focusing on information about surviving the early months of parenthood. Learn about Postnatal care for parents, self-care and well-being; optimal nutrition for new Mums and when to and how to return to exercise. Learn about life with a newborn baby – the Fourth Trimester; setting up a safe sleep space and products that support safe sleep and where to get help and support.
So you’ve hit a stumbling block! Has sleep suddenly become a really big deal? Here we’ll talk you through what to expect as baby grows and develops through various sleep stages!
Often there isn’t a lot of talk about sleep at the hospital and baby may still dreamily sleep for the first few days anyway. Plus you don’t have to wash, clean, cook or shop when you’re in hospital. Then you arrive home…
Wool is a natural insulator! Wool is magic stuff – often referred to as ‘the miracle fibre’. We want to help demystify the preconceptions of wool. Did you know that babies fall asleep quicker in wool bedding? Let’s discuss why wool helps baby sleep…
Safe swaddling involves comforting and securing the newborn from their own startle reflex, but not restricting all natural movement. For healthy development, newborns need to breathe freely, have some movement of their arms and be able to frog and kick their legs.
My Facebook has been pinging with the obligatory back to school and starting school or daycare photos. It’s so cute and marks the beginning of a new journey for children and parents alike. It’s time to get back into a routine.
Your baby has been used to being swaddled snugly since birth but now it might be time to transition out of the swaddle or to at least give it some thought. Learn how to spot the signs that your baby needs to transition out of swaddling and how to implement a plan to tackle the transition to your baby’s next sleep stage.
My inspiration for creating Bubbaroo, my son Jacob, will turn 13 over the weekend, I can hardly believe that I’m about to become a mum of a teenager. I’ve been reflecting back on my Motherhood journey so far and all that I’ve learnt along the way. This is Part One my story…..
The “Dream Feed”! What is it? Sounds pleasantly relaxing but should you do it? Will it work?
Dream feeding is when you wake your baby just enough to take a feed, just before you go off to bed yourself. The goal is to top baby up with an extra feed whilst still asleep, then put them back to bed, in the hope that you will get a longer stretch of sleep yourself. Will you try it?
When I set out to create our Platinum range of Joey Swag Baby Sleeping Bags I wanted a premium product that really worked to help babies sleep. I researched the qualities of wool and worked with Woolmark in Australia where I learnt of a study by the University of Sydney which found that sleeping in wool beats both polyester and cotton for sleep quality.
