Folding

The biggest problem with most double jogging strollers is taking care of them when you aren’t using them. You will not have that problem with this stroller though. It uses a 2 hand fold and comes with a manual lock. It doesn’t have a carry handle and doesn’t self-stand either. It takes 3-4 steps for you to fold and is quite easy to do.

Tips to get Your Baby to Latch On

No Comments

Breastfeeding looks easy, mums just whip up their tops up and the baby gets her food – right? Wrong! While breastfeeding is very easy, getting started, getting your baby to latch on and feeding in the correct position is incredibly hard. The good news is, once you’ve mastered the latch and your positioning, breastfeeding will become as easy as eating a whole packet of biscuits!

First things first

Your baby’s face is specially designed for breastfeeding. Her little turned up nose and receding chin means she can feed happily and breath at the same time, so never worry that she cannot breathe. If she can’t she will pull away from feeding. If your baby’s nose seems to be blocked by your breast, change your positioning slightly to see if that helps or move your breast so that your baby has a clear airway. Read More

Meningitis: How to Spot The Signs

No Comments

Babies and young children are more susceptible than adults to illness and disease because their immune systems are still forming.

Due to this vulnerability, meningitis is more prevalent amongst little ones. As a parent, it is important to understand the warning signs and find ways to protect both you and your child against meningitis.

Listeriosis: what is it?

Mums-to-be are at a higher risk of contracting listeriosis, a bacterial infection that can lead to meningitis. Listeriosis is not usually harmful to pregnant women and can feel like a mild flu case with body aches and a high temperature. However, it can be dangerous for an unborn baby if passed on to him from the mother. The bacteria can be found in food but will usually be killed if cooked or reheated thoroughly. Though the chance of being infected by this disease as a pregnant mum is very small – about one in every 20,000 pregnant women will be affected – it is important to go to your GP if you suspect an infection. Listeriosis can be detected by your GP through a blood or urine test. Read More

Baby Health: Ringworm

No Comments

Ringworm is one of several related skin infections called tinea and it can occur on the skin, scalp and nails. You will probably have heard of (and may even be familiar with!) athlete’s foot, which is the term used to describe ringworm when it occurs on the feet, but in young children it’s more likely to appear on the face, torso or scalp. It’s very contagious and common in toddlers and preschoolers who tend to mix more with other children. Here’s gurgle’s roundup of the facts you need to know to recognise, treat and prevent it…

1. It’s not a worm

Ringworm is actually a fungal infection caused by mould-like fungi called dermatophytes that live on dead cells from the skin, hair, and nails. Read More

When do Babies Teeth?

No Comments

Teething is known as the period in an infant’s life that the teeth grow and break through the gums. For some babies, this can be a painful experience and for others it occurs with no complaint at all. The answer to ‘When do babies teeth?’ is different for every baby. Some babies are born with a tooth (known as a natal tooth) while others get their first tooth after the age of one. If a natal tooth is securely set in the gum, there is no problem. If a natal tooth is loose, it will more than likely be removed as this can be inhaled into your baby’s windpipe if it were to fall out. If it is removed, your child will be left with a gap until a second tooth grows around school going age. Your doctor should be made aware if your baby has a natal tooth. The average age for a baby’s first tooth to break through is about six months. Your baby will probably have been drooling and biting from the age of three to four months already. It is thought that the teething pattern could be hereditary. If either you or your partner were an early or late teether, chances are your children will follow the same pattern. You should consider visiting your dentist to check that everything is growing fine if your baby has no sign of showing teeth by the time they reach their first birthday. Read More

Why babies need tummy time

No Comments

Although it’s important to ensure your baby sleeps safe by placing her on her back in her crib for naps and at night time, spending time on her tummy is also important for her development. New research suggests that if babies don’t get enough ‘tummy time’ they can have delays in motor development.

Sleeping your baby on her back is a vital safeguard against sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), and the incidence of SIDS has dropped by 40% since the Back to Sleep campaign was launched in 1992. However, safe sleep, combined with the fact that many babies spend long periods of time in their infant carrier and swing, means they don’t get to experience the variety of positions that can help them progress. And they’re also at risk of flat head syndrome, where the back of the head can take on a flattened appearance due to resting against their crib mattress, car seat or swing. Read More
