Description

Congratulations on the safe arrival of your baby. Now starts the full-time and possibly quite daunting job of taking care of all your newborns needs! This workshop will be all about caring for and communicating with your new baby and gaining a good understanding their developmental and nutritional needs. With plenty of practical advice and tips to go away with, we hope to give you confidence in your abilities as a parent and help make the experience a little less overwhelming.

Delivered by Vanessa & Carly who as a health visitor and dietitian respectively should be able to answer all your queries on enjoying the first few months with your little one.

Topics covered on the day will include:

Observing my baby and getting to know one another

Encouraging my baby’s development

Importance of sleep

Feeding your baby – considering breastfeeding, bottle feeding and combination feeding

Exploring feeding routines and establishing responsive feeding practices

Nutritional needs of the infant and variations in infant growth patterns

Introduction to Infant feeding challenges – what is colic / reflux / cow’s milk protein allergy / lactose intolerance?

A healthy approach to post-pregnancy weight loss

Nutrition when breastfeeding and eating well as a new mum

Coping with my new baby - Why does my baby cry? Why won’t my baby sleep? How do I know if my baby is unwell? How to keep my baby safe.

We will;

talk you through the latest evidence and advice

look at how this advice could work for you and your family

support you in gaining confidence in your own abilities to help your little one become the healthy and happy person you wish them to be

You will come away with

Ideas, skills and approaches to caring for and feeding your baby

A better understanding of your babies emotional and nutritional needs for the stage they are currently at

Some useful handouts to help you remember the factual stuff (because we realise that you might not be getting much sleep right now!)

You are welcome to attend with or without your baby. Partners are encouraged to attend as well.

This workshop is recommended for those with babies from 0-12 weeks of age. We have coffee and tissues because we've been there!

Workshops are a maximum of 15 people and the price of £35 includes a hot drink, plenty of evidence-based information to take home and a goody bag.

The Wheatstone Inn is an informal venue located just outside of Gloucester (next to the bowling and Premier Inn). It is easy to access, has plenty of parking, and provides the option to purchase breakfast before the session or lunch afterwards.

Before purchasing a ticket for this event please ensure you have read and accept the Terms and Conditions for this event.

Please note that partners are very welcome to attend and pay a concessionary rate of £5 which includes a hot drink (we envisage you being able to share the goody bag!).
