Coping with lifestyle changes
From bonding with your newborn to embracing a new life stage, there are lots of changes to accommodate when you start a family. Some changes will come naturally, others will require more adjustment.
Finding time for you
When you’re so focused on being a parent and putting other people first, it can be easy to forget to look after yourself. But when you're feeling good and refreshed, you're better equipped to care for others, so don’t feel guilty about enjoying some time out.
Children's food and exercise
Many parents worry their children aren’t getting enough exercise or eating the right food. It can be worrying if your child won’t eat certain foods and with constant access to screens and electronic hobbies it means children can be sitting down for longer periods.
Choosing a nursery
When it comes to choosing a nursery for your child, it’s important you feel you’ve made the right decision; but where do you start? Leaving your child in the care of someone else is never easy, so discover our top tips for choosing a nursery.
Being a fit grandparent
Being a grandparent can be hard work. Chasing after little ones can get more difficult as we get older. The best way to keep your body strong is through diet and exercise, but as we age our bodies change and you may want to adapt the exercise that you do. This might mean opting for lower impact exercise or building and maintaining strength.
