    Annabel Karmel on Weaning, Snacking & Allergies

    Annabel Karmel on Weaning, Snacking & Allergies

    Annabel is a complete hero of mine, I would have been lost without her books when I started having children. We had such a lovely talk today, not only about what she is doing, which is pretty incredible, but about everything from how to wean, whether you’re going puree or baby-led, allergies, snacks and how to encourage the kids to be more involved in the kitchen.  
     
    I will link all of the bits that we talked about in the show notes, but I wanted to highlight her new allergy tracker on her Baby & Toddler Recipe App, which I wish I had when mine were small. Email us at info@mybaba.com

    Why A Routine Is So Important From Day One With The Blissful Baby Expert Lisa Clegg

    Why A Routine Is So Important From Day One With The Blissful Baby Expert Lisa Clegg

    This month's podcast on baby routine marks Sleep Awareness Week and World Sleep Day on Friday 19th March. We invite maternity nurse aka The Blissful Baby expert Lisa Clegg to the show to discuss baby routine and sleep.
    Like me, she is a firm believer in a routine right from the start. A baby's routine doesn’t have to be rigid but it does has to be a routine that works for you and your family. Lisa shares her top tips, which include how to introduce a bottle to a breastfeeding baby and how having a routine doesn’t mean that you can’t go out for a day with friends. Our podcast on baby routine includes discussion about different ages and stages, with Lisa confirming that it’s not just down to luck when you have a baby that sleeps well.
    For more information check out her website and follow Lisa on Instagram @blissfulbabyexpert1.

    It’s Okay To Rock Your Baby Back To Sleep

    Dr Harvey Karp covers everything to do with baby sleep, sleeping techniques and what to expect from your newborn in those first few weeks. We address sleep exhaustion and when it’s time to introduce a routine for baby. There’s so much by the way of genius tips and advice, not just for first-time parents, but second-time parents too. We also chatted about the most common mistakes new parents make, as well as how best to transition your baby into their cot.
    Dr Karp also talks in-depth about his genius SNOO smart sleeper. This piece of baby kit is almost worth having another baby for. He is also the creator of the SNOO Smart Sleeper, a new class of responsive infant bed that has won over 20 top international honours, and is definitely worth a look.

    Children's Winter Health: How Many Colds Are Too Many?

    In this episode of My Baba's podcast Parental Control, paediatrician Dr Sophie Niedermaier-Patramani from Little Tummy joins the show to talk about children's winter health.
    We talk about everything from childhood illnesses, chickenpox and measles to if it's actually possible to be too sterile in the home. We spoke a lot about the microbiome and its job in fighting infection and whether children actually need vitamin supplements or not.  The only thing the jury is still out on is whether you will catch a cold if you go out with wet hair!
