  • Child Proofing the House: Safety Aware!

    Every milestone that a child hits brings excitement and celebration. When a child starts to roll over, shuffle, crawl and then eventually walk, adults can be seen jumping for joy, thrilled with the huge achievement. Ten seconds later comes the realisation that the house is a potential ‘death trap’ and that with their new found skill, children can get into all sorts of mischief through their explorations and adventures. Making these everyday places and situations safe can be a challenge but rest assured, small changes can make a significant difference.

  • The Magic of Music

    Music is magical. It has the power to alter a person’s mood, subtly educate and create long lasting impressions.

Others believe that playing music can impact the mood of the baby through either the melody, chords or perhaps through the knock on effect of the mother’s mood. Either way, music is a powerful force and one which is sometimes overlooked when it comes to child care.
