Baby Health

Your baby’s health is a priority for every parent; whether you have a premature or a newborn baby, find help, advice and tips from mums, to keep your baby happy and healthy.

What is the best way to care for a premature baby?

Whether you return home at the same time, or earlier, than your infant, there are ways to prepare for their care; whilst premature babies may need longer in the hospital than full-term babies, they may also need some modifications made at home. You may find your premature baby takes a little longer to gain weight than a full-term baby, for instance, and that they take a little longer to settle into a routine.

How can I soothe my newborn baby?

Whether your baby takes a while to settle or is a light sleeper, learning how to soothe a newborn is a skill that every mum needs to have under her belt. Every child is different, but there are some tried and tested methods to help you provide comfort to your newborn. Whether your baby is colicky, overtired, or a little fussy about feeding, we have tips and advice that can help.

When do I need to consider calling my baby doctor?

It can be easy to fall into the trap of calling your baby’s doctor for every issue that occurs when you first get your baby home – particularly if you’re a first-time mum! However, once you and baby bond a little, and start to get settled into a routine, your instincts start to kick in, and you’ll find it becomes easier to decide whether or not to seek medical advice. Having said that, if you’re having doubts, it’s better to check in with a doctor; that’s what they’re there for, after all!
