Focusing on small babies and toddlers, the contents of this blog are based on questions posed by Mothers attending ‘Well Baby Clinics’, antenatal and family planning clinics over a period of about 30 years in which I was involved in these clinics.
Some of the responses are common sense methods, others are rather controversial and different, but all have been tried and tested.
When deciding on a response for your particular need always pick the one with which you feel most comfortable and success will follow.
