Here at Mummy Mayday
Guiding you through the myriad of equipment and products that are available to new parents.
Everything from sterilisers to baby baths, toys and bottles etc.
We understand that it may be tempting to buy everything that you think you need, this is often not the case.
We will help you purchase things that are important and essential that should come first. Followed by the things that are nice to have. Primary purchases should be a steamer steriliser for instance.
Understanding which toys will entertain and stimulate your baby rather than just being the latest “must-have”.
Taking you through all the tasks involved in taking care of a baby.

Some people think you can’t have any routine until about 3mths old but in my experience the earlier you start with some structure the easier it is for both you and your baby. We will work with you to devise a plan that fits in with you and your family. We can help you
- Emphasize the difference between night and day
- Ensure you spend nice awake time with your baby during the day
- Understanding your babies sleep signs
- Make sure your baby has enough good quality sleep during the day
- Establish a good bedtime routine that fits in with your family
Establishing a routine
Help with all kinds of feeding problems…
- Help with breast feeding, getting the correct position for you, length of feeds, frequency of feeds
- Helping you decide which bottle is right for your baby
- Transition from breast to bottle
- How to banish night feeds
- How and when to start weaning
How and when to start giving your baby solid food can be a stressful time for parents and there is some much conflicting advice on the subject. Although the guidelines say you shouldn’t start until 26 weeks but in my experience babies are just too hungry by this time and I don’t think its realistic that all babies should be weaned at the same age, weight and development should be taken into consideration. We can help you with
- Identifying the signs that your baby is ready for solid food
- Deciding which equipment can make the process easier for you
- A plan of which foods are the best first foods to give
- When is the best time of day for your baby to start solids
