Parent Pod from BabyCentre - newborn week 4
In this week’s episode, we talk about postnatal depression and how to recognise the signs you or your partner may be suffering with it. We also talk about bonding in these early stages and how that connection may not always be instant. Dad of two, Joshua - aka The Dad He - shares his experience of bonding and how he helped develop it with his newborn. We also share some top tips on what your baby should wear as a newborn and hear from BabyCentre parents about the outdated advice they've been given as new parents.
The Parent Pod is hosted by Lucy Toseland-Bolton and Claire Mutimer, both mums to young children and both BabyCentre parents. It is produced by BabyCentre UK and Tin Shed Productions. Download all 48 episodes now.
