Baby talk for new mums and dads


Experienced mums Nicky Thompson (left) and Cath Hudson are offering pearls of wisdom to new mums and dads.

Queenstown Plunket is introducing a Your New Baby course from next week – free for expectant parents and with advice on things like bathing, feeding, sleeping, making a bed, nappies and carseats for babies up to six weeks old.

“It’s something we decided that we really need here,” Thompson says.

The three-session course will be held once a month.

The first session begins next Wednesday and the classes will be running for each Wednesday night from 7-9pm at the Queenstown Plunket rooms. Spaces are still available, Hudson says.
