Your baby is becoming more mobile, so we talk about starting to think about safety around the home – before he’s reaching out for anything that catches his eye! We also talk about postnatal anxiety and concerns you may have as a new parent, plus postnatal depression in new mums and dads. And, how are you coping with unwanted parenting advice? We can help! We’ll also be looking ahead to weaning, whether it's baby-led or purees, plus which foods are not recommended as a first food!
