Eat safe

It pays to know the basics of food hygiene (which are mostly common sense). Always wash your hands throughly with soap and warm water before preparing food. Wash fresh fruit and vegetables, wrap or cover raw meat and store different foods separetly. Keep all food preparation surfaces and equipment clean and use a separate chopping board for raw meat for your children.

Don’t be too keen to wean. Health professionals now generally recommend exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months. Since babies develop at different rates, however you may wish to consult your healthcare professional about the best time for your baby to start solids. Wearing before 17 weeks is always inadvisable as the baby’s kidneys and digestive system are still too immature to cope with solid food.

Have simple fare. First foods should be soft, smooth and sloopy is texuture. Breast milk or formula can be blended into the food to give it a runny consistency. Start with a very simple food, such as baby rice, and introduce others slowly, one at a time so as to observe whether any produce an allergic or intolerant reaction in your baby.

Don’t forget to photograph your babies on a regular basis as they grow up so quickly.
Obviously, you can always contact me for some great professional photos.

Find the safe havens

Find the safe havens

Choose vacation venues where your older children can have a certain amount of freedome. Campus-style family centres are great for kids who are pressing to be allowed to do things on their own. Make sure that you know where they are going, if possible, get them to go in groups of two or more.

Get the ratio right. Take enough adults on vacation. Two adults to four kids can be tiring, four adults to four adults is far more relaxing. Invite along family and friends to improve the adults to kids ratio, and take turns with the kids so that adult couples are able to have a little time together.

Agree some ground rules in advance if you are holidaying with friends and their children. For instance, agree roughly when the children will have to go to bed, how much junk food they will be allowed to eat and how the babysitting rota could work. It’s best to tackle some basics before departure so that disagreements don’t spoil the holiday.

Make sure that you take a lot of photos during your holiday, so you will have a lot of memories to cherish forever.
