Safer sleep for babies!

Do you find yourself worrying when the baby is asleep? Well, these tips from The Lullaby Trust provide simple steps for reducing the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), giving you the peace of mind to rest and enjoy the special early months.

• Always place your baby on their back to sleep
• Keep your baby smoke-free during pregnancy and after birth
• Place your baby in a separate cot or Moses basket in your room for the first 6 months
• Breastfeed your baby
• Use a firm, flat, waterproof mattress in good condition

Dad’s need to be more involved in parenting…

Did you know that men have a much bigger influence than women on boys becoming well-adjusted adults…?

According to leading learning and behaviour specialist, Noel Janis-Norton, a strong father figure is vital to helping boys learn how to handle their emotions and physical strength as well as respecting others and themselves.

In her new book “Calmer, Easier, Happier Boys “, Janis-Norton suggests that mums can be too possessive and sometimes find it hard to sit back and let dad take charge, which includes letting them do things differently to how they would do them.

“Mothers need to allow dads to be dads and to have their own relationship with their children – and in particular with their boys – without trying to micromanage”.

What an exciting week it’s been!

First we were mentioned alongside Royalty in the Daily Mail as a must have baby product fit for a Princess! This sent yoomi HQ into quite a tizz, even Jim could be heard whooping down the corridor!

And then the Little Princess arrived… Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana … quite perfect!!

Making her Grand debut on May 2, could Princess Charlotte have looked any cuter wrapped up in a sweet blanket and bonnet? We must confess we’re rather looking forward to following her wardrobe already!!
