Watching your babe achieve new skills makes your heart go a flutter! You’re watching in awe as this little human, who you have brought in to the world, learns, develops and grows right before your eyes. Working on tummy time helps him to one day move on his own. He starts to lift his head and one day take those amazing first steps will be some of the most proud moments you have as a parent. Tummy time is such an important first step into the future.
There are so many things you should do as a mother. And so many things you shouldn’t. There are opinions, articles, experts, advocates, infographics and judgements (spoken and subliminal).
Sleep is a hot topic among new mamas, and seasoned ones too for that matter! No one is immune to having a child who doesn't want to sleep.
Sometimes being a mum seems like the hardest job in the world. And a thankless one at that!
Are you dreading winter?
We have had the most amazing summer this year. Here in Newcastle the beaches have been alive, beautiful blue warm water, steamy sand and incredibly hot days that made walking in the bush just glorious.
A change of seasons can always stir up an array of challenges, especially for some families who just seem to get every cold, flu and sniffle that goes around, winter is such a downer!
Allergies and colds and flu being the most common
Allergies and colds and flu being the most common. For many families with little ones, we tend to stay indoors with heating on. This can be problematic because it
- Decreases vitamin D intake due to be inside
- Increases 'dampness' and exposure to the indoor allergens due to poor ventilation
- Decreased exercise and running around for little ones, put the body at a disadvantage for keeping the immune system buzzing along
- Increased contact to friends and family members due to time indoors with closer proximity
SELL OUT EVENT!!
Our centre has only been open for a short period of time since July 2016. Already we have had a great response with families in the Newcastle community with some of our events we have hosted recently.
Dr Amanda Watson (Chiropractor) hosted a sell out event alongside Renee from Sweet Dreams Baby (Certified Sleep Consultant) on 'Nurturing Sleep - A workshop for tired Mums!'
We had great feedback from the attendees saying that the skills and information gathered from the event was helpful & informative. It was great to give the Mum's some tips & skills to help babies sleep. We have another Sleep workshop coming soon due to such great demand! So register here to keep informed of these types of upcoming events.
Our aim is to always help our families grow together healthily, happily & be able to function at our fullest potential. Through our continued research, workshops & events whilst keeping chiropractic care at the forefront we will always be supporting families and here if you have any questions.
