I have 2 sets of this brilliant Essential Parent Baby Care Guide DVD box set to giveaway. The guide comprises 4 DVDs with over 8 hours of visual demonstrations coveting everything new parents need to know to raise, happy, safe and healthy babies through its many parenting tips.
Recent research has revealed that 80% of new parents felt they were not equipped to deal with this practical side of parenting. According to David Cameron people spend more time learning to drive than they do learning to become good parents! I’m not sure about that but I do definitely think these care & development DVD’s are a good idea.
These essential Parent Company DVDs are solely concerned with supporting parents in their own choices. If a mother wants to breastfeed it shows her how and if she chooses to bottle feed it shows her how. That is quite unusual these days.
Professor Winston is a baby expert and has advised the company throughout the making of these DVDs.
DVD 1 - “Feeding” – includes Breastfeeding, Formula Feeding, & Introducing Solids, and is presented by UNICEF UK Baby Friendly Initiative, and a Paediatric Nutritionist from the British Dietetic Association.
