Health app | By: Jean hailes
Becoming a parent is one of the biggest jobs you’ll ever take on. It’s one of the few jobs where there is little training. It’s natural for new parents to feel a little lost when a new baby comes home, often wondering “What Were We Thinking!” As you navigate the highs and lows of a new world, this app gives you the knowledge, skills and reassurance to become a confident parent.
The What Were We Thinking! app provides week-by-week information on essential topics to help mums and partners (and anyone supporting them) adjust well to the first 6 months of life with a baby.
By focusing on both the practical and personal aspects of parenting, this app gives you evidence-based, tried and tested parenting advice from leading Australian experts.
Understand more about:
- managing unsettled infant behaviours like crying and sleeping difficulties, and building a Feed-Sleep-Play routine
- using new ideas and ways of thinking to help you adjust to your new role as parents and to respond to each other’s needs.
What Were We Thinking! is a free app and can be downloaded from the What Were We Thinking! – Apple App Store.
