UNICEF UK say:
All your baby needs
It can be reassuring to know that, despite all the pressure to buy expensive equipment and toys for your new baby, you don’t really need to spend lots of money. What matters to your baby and his future development is having parents who love and care for him.
Becoming a new parent can be wonderful, but it can also be difficult.
Babies benefit from lots of toys to help them learn.
Looking at your face is the best way for babies to learn. Talking, listening and smiling triggers oxytocin and helps your baby’s brain to grow.
If you would like more information contact your midwife and/or book on to a breastfeeding workshop.
