You and Your New Baby

The good news is that newborn babies arrive with fast growing brains and bodies with an inbuilt ability to develop all the tools they will ever need in order to learn about and engage with the world. But this doesn’t mean that you, and your baby, won’t ever need a helping hand.

Whatever you are needing guidance on: helping your baby to successfully latch on to your nipple, establishing a sleep routine or clarity regarding what is just your anxiety and what is genuine cause for concern, we think you should be able to get trusted guidance, for free, 24/7.

This is why My BabyManual’s team of professional researchers and clinician authors have compiled a comprehensive library of online resources to help you and your baby on your way to health and confidence in the first year of life.
