Every Monday, experienced Mothercraft Nurse Chris Minogue, answers your questions on sleep, weaning, settling, bathing, routines, development and anything in between.  

This week we talk to Chris about the changing seasons and how they may affect your baby.  

 In this episode: 

  • How do babies regulate their body temperature and how can you tell if they’re too hot or too cold?
  • How does daylight savings affect babies and small children?
  • Spring has sprung, so how do you know if your child has hayfever or pollen allergies? 
  • Sun protection  
  • How to clip your baby’s nails?
