    12. Light The Candles. You Made It

    Congratulations. You made it. Pop the cork, pour a glass of bubbly...(well, maybe not if you’re still breastfeeding) and pass the cake. It's time to marvel at how things have changed. We check in with our in-house paediatrician to go over baby's milestones, and discuss what to expect when you're living with a toddler. And if you've closed up shop, and you're in the "one and done" crowd, we discuss being an only child. But if you want to go around again, we talk planning for siblings, how to go about it, and introducing baby number two.

    11. The Work Question

    11. The Work Question

    Grab the baby wipes and get ready to scrub the spit off your shirt. This episode is all about going back to work. PAID work, we mean. What happens if you're on maternity leave and you want to go back to work early? What if you NEVER want to go back? Is there something in between? Plus, if you haven’t got child care organised, is it too late? Will you have to take your baby to work and keep it in a basket under your desk?

    10. Everyone's An Expert

    Life with a new baby can mean all your attention gets focused on just one thing; them. But researchers have found that relationship satisfaction can plummet after the birth of a baby. So, how can we nurture not just the baby but your relationship? How can you keep the old love alive when all your time and brain space is going into the love for your new one? This episode is all about your relationships in this first year. From your partner to your mother's group, the in-laws, parents and siblings, from friends who have kids and those who don't, we'll help you negotiate the change, and overcome the hurdles.

    9. Remember You?

    9. Remember You?

    Do you look in the mirror and not even recognise yourself anymore? Miss adult conversation? Wonder if you will ever be the same person again? It's OK. The loss of identity feeling you have is normal. But, we’re going to talk about getting help with it. Also, if your social life has been depleted, we tackle how to get out of the house, find your community, and reclaim those adult conversations, without the separation anxiety. And how do you deal with family if you’re only just managing to keep it together? We have the strategies to help.

    8. The Food Diaries

    8. The Food Diaries

    You might be a MasterChef in the kitchen, cooking up the latest in kale, pork belly or truffles but your baby won’t care. They're all about mush. Tasteless and nutritional mush. 

    This episode is all about starting solids. How can you recognise allergies? What's the best fix for fussy eaters? How can you introduce different flavours, and when? Is there a trick to getting less food on the floor, and more in their gob? And if you're thinking you should just let them eat nude and hose them down after, you're not alone.

    7. Don't Drop The Baby

    7. Don't Drop The Baby

    Have you gone from a free-loving, crazy risk-taker into walking around in a hazmat suit and bubble wrap?  

    This episode is all about safety. What should you worry about and what can you let slide? Should you rush out and do a CPR or First Aid course, or is common sense enough? We go room by room through your house and identify hazards, and then take it outside and look at car seats, water safety, and the big wide outside world.

Great parenting podcast

Very relatable parenting podcast full of useful little tips!

Episode 4

Sure sounds like a slightly more gentle version of cry it out to me....there are many studies about the effects on babies, I would have loved it if these were discussed ....maybe it would have been better to have a few different professional opinions, lots of vulnerable people would be listening to this.
