Helping you care for your cub from pregnancy and through childhood

Starting Solids Workshops

Weaning. Starting solids. Just as you think you have this parenting lark figured out, you can sort of understand what your baby wants and needs, then life sends a curveball, and you have to start thinking of a whole new phase – starting to introduce you baby to solid foods.

There are so many books, websites and magazines giving your conflicting advice, not to mention the well-meaning comments from friends and family. It is hard to know where to start!

When should you start? What meal should you start with? Baby rice?! What about the foods labelled ‘from 4 months? Do I need to start early if my baby is big? Do you need special equipment? How much milk does my baby need? Do they need water? Is there anything I can’t give? Puree or finger foods? Or lumpy food? What about spices? How can I make sure my baby isn’t a fussy eater? What about allergies? Will I give my baby a sweet tooth if I start with fruits? What even is baby-led weaning?

This 2.5-hour workshop will give you the latest evidence-based information so you can make the best-informed choices for you and your baby. We will keep it simple, answering all your questions along the way, and leaving you feeling confident and ready for this next part of the journey with your baby.

Workshops can be delivered online or in person.

If you would like to organise a workshop with friends (minimum 4) I can deliver in your own home.

Private (1:1) workshops and support available on request.

0-6 month old sleep Workshops

Ah, sleep. It is such a hot topic when it comes to babies. There are so many things to think about. 

There are so many books, websites and magazines giving your conflicting advice, not to mention the well-meaning comments from friends and family. It is so hard to trust your instincts and listen to baby.

When should they be sleeping through the night? How many day time naps do they need? Do naps need to be in a dark room?! What is safe sleep? What schedule should they be on? When will my baby nap for 2 hours straight? How can I make my baby sleep longer? How can I get them to sleep in their own cot?

Honestly, I can’t give you the magic answer to these questions but I can help you feel confident in what is normal infant behaviour. Setting expectations and understanding that sleep needs change throughout the first year and beyond can help so much.

This 2.5-hour workshop will give you the latest evidence-based information so you can make the best-informed choices for you and your baby. We will keep it simple, answering all your questions along the way.

Workshops can be delivered online or in person.
