We love autumn! Back to school buzz, warm clothes back out, and blackberrying in the woods with friends. This issue, we have plenty of great articles, tips, trends and competitions for you. The second part in our alternative birth series is; water births. The Coombe is the only maternity hospital in Dublin which has a specially designed birthing pool. Since the commencement of the service in 2004, over 300 women have used the pool for labour and, of these, 107 women have gone on to have a water birth. Read all about the requirements for having a water birth, along with 3 stories from our readers on their own experience. Sleep, the holy grail for all parents. A common question our panel of experts get for our M&T Clinic pages is, ‘why won’t my baby nap?’ Sleep Expert, Lucy Wolfe, explains the reasons behind this dilemma and gives some useful sleep solutions to get baby napping better during the day and sleeping better at night too. There are many different diets out there. For most of us, steering clear of any sort of ‘fad diet’ is a good idea. However for some, these particular diets can be useful in the short and/or long term on helping your health and getting in to a better lifestyle. We uncover the pros and cons to each. Don’t forget to enter this issue’s amazing competitions, which include; a family hotel break at The Rose Hotel, Co. Kerry, Penneys gift cards, a book hamper from Usborne Books and a Zip baby carrier from Infantino Bkids.
Mums & Tots encompasses it all in a stylish and accessible 100 page glossy, total package, whether its; pregnancy, baby’s health, parenting, local events, latest products or reader competitions. We aim to reach mums on a very real level in every aspect of their pre and post natal journey.
