Look out for your baby's first tooth from about 4-6 months of age

Many mums find their iron stores run low when they have young babies so make sure you eat plenty of iron rich foods, such as red meat or dark, leafy green vegetables. Eating healthily will give you and your baby the energy you both need. And of course you can still have the odd treat!

Your baby's brain will treble in weight by their first birthday

You should aim to eat small but frequent meals or snacks every 2 to 3 hours. Do bear in mind that keeping meals healthy does not have to mean you need to spend hours in the kitchen preparing in advance.

Babies have a natural reflex to swim until about 4-6 months, after this it must be re taught

Regular exercise will give you more energy and also make it easier for you to sleep and relax in the evenings. A mum and baby yoga class would be the ideal way to spend some quality time with your little one while keeping you active at the same time.

Chatting and singing to your baby will help their speech development

When life with a little one gets a bit crazy, meals made in advance are real life savers! Freezing can save you time when you need it the most by allowing you to prepare your favourite recipes ahead of time so that you can pull them out for a quick and easy meal when the time is right.

In the first 6 months of life, your baby will grow faster than they ever will again in their whole life

It can be both worrying and frustrating when your baby refuses new foods. Don't Panic! It can take up to 15 attempts before a baby accepts a new taste, so be patient and try things gradually. If it doesn’t work one day, just try it again later in the week.

Up until 7 months of age, a baby can breathe and swallow at the same!

Over the coming months your baby will be getting a schedule of immunisations to protect them from certain illnesses. To help you keep on top of all your appointments we have developed a Immunisation Tracker. Based on your child’s birth date, the App sends timely reminders to your phone when vaccines are due.

The floor is also an ideal place to play. Place your baby on their tummy and encourage them to stretch for toys that are slightly out of their reach. This will strengthen their stomach muscles and provide the ideal opportunity to roll over – an important milestone in your baby’s development.

When your baby starts teething, it can be a traumatic time for you both – especially if they find the process distressing and uncomfortable. Some babies have no trouble cutting their teeth whilst for others the process can last for weeks. To help them, try rubbing their gums gently with your finger or give them something to chew such as a chilled teething ring. Teething gel or granules can also help.

A baby's heart beats between 130 and 160 times per minute, about twice the heart rate of a normal adult

When starting to wean, we've got to admit that it's quite entertaining to see your baby’s reactions to the foods they try!

Babies naturally prefer sweeter flavours so offering vegetables before fruits can be a good idea

Increasing activity levels will mean they’ll need lots of space to explore. It takes them time to learn the meaning of “no!” so baby-proofing your home will help to keep your baby and your breakables out of harm’s way.

Babies are born with natural iron stores, but these are now starting to run out

If you’re using a bottle, allow your baby to hold it with both hands – it will improve their grip and free you up to do other things.

At 6 months of age, milk is no longer enough for your baby which is why weaning is recommended

Before your baby can eat lumps of food, they’ll need to start learning how to chew. It’s more about mashed textures, rather than lumpy food or finger foods.

In the first 6 months of life your baby's birthweight doubles, and it will triple by 1 year!

Don't be worried if your little one isn't dropping milk feeds just yet. Milk is still an important part of your baby’s diet as it provides essential nutrients to compliment your babys weaning diet.
