Infant feeding is one of the first things on a new parents mind - it is such a fundamental part of the fourth trimester. Whether you choose to breastfeed, combination feed or formula feed you and your baby are learning a whole new skill that can take a little time and patience to get to grips with. Knowing what to expect, how to work out if your feeding journey is going well and common conditions to keep an eye out for such as jaundice can make you feel more confident and prepared as you navigate the early weeks with your little one.
On this weeks episode I am joined by Dr Shruti Nathwani, Dr Shruti is a NHS Paediatrician and host of the platform @thechildrensmedic medic. Knowing there is a gap in knowledge and support parents receive upon arrival of their newborn, she set out to try and inform parents with evidence-based information and tips.
"It was when I had my own son that I realised there were so many questions as a new parent and not enough support to go around." She covers topics such as reflux, newborn stool, eczema, developmental milestones and many more on both her Instagram page and website www.thechildrensmedic.com
