Infants

Infants are scary little things! So fragile, so wonderfully cute, so scarily small! Having an Infant isn’t easy! I remember Alex and I spent hours just watching our little girl to check she was still breathing.

Although this stage can be overwhelming, we have written some posts which will hopefully put your mind at ease and help you on this amazing journey into parenthood.

As a new parent, you’ve probably got tons of questions! Heck, even the most experienced of parents will still have questions about infants! They’re all so different and honestly, once the infant stage passes – you seem to forget all the challenges!

We have posts on a range of topics covering what to expect after birth as your little one grows from an infant to a toddler and into childhood! Exciting isn’t it!?
