Your baby’s skin is soft and beautifully smooth. Because it’s so delicate, your baby’s precious skin is even more sensitive to irritants and allergens. We’ll show you the best ways to keep your baby’s skin clean, moisturised and protected. Our Huggies Skin Health Hub is full of articles, videos, eBooks, and other great resources to help you to identify and treat everything from slightly dry skin, to nappy rash and a wide range of other skin conditions.
Breastfeeding is a very important element of baby care.
Our guides show you how to get your baby to latch on, and what to do if you get a breastfeeding-related infection like Mastitis. Find out more about ensuring your baby is getting enough breast milk.
If you decide not to breastfeed, baby formula is the next best thing.
Baby formula is specifically developed to provide all the necessary nutrients (protein, carbohydrates and fats) as well as necessary vitamins and minerals to ensure your baby is well fed from birth. Ask your early childhood centre or doctor, talk to other new mums, and use the Huggies online forum to find out which baby formulas best suit you and your baby’s needs.
One of the most important things you can give your baby is a balanced, healthy diet.
For the first few months, baby feeding is all about drinking. Around 4 to 6 months, the next significant step in baby feeding takes place: eating solids. Find out what to feed your little one, how to deal with allergies, and much more.
Sleep is one of the most import aspects of your baby’s early development.
Developing a sleep routine that works for you and your new baby is important. Huggies can help you create good sleeping patterns so that you and your baby get as much sleep as possible. Huggies also has great information on common baby sleep problems and how best to try and manage them.
Even experienced parents get worried over what may be a minor baby health care scare.
The more you know about your baby’s health, the more confident you will feel about recognising how serious a condition or symptom may be. Huggies cannot replace the advice and care of healthcare professionals, but we can give you the basics and help to answer the many questions you may have about your baby’s health and development.
Your baby will achieve miraculous developmental milestones during the first few years of their life.
But how do you know what milestones should happen, and when? Did you know that at 2 months your baby should be able to smile? And at 6 months should be able to grasp objects in their little hands? Huggies provides a comprehensive baby milestone guide for all parents as they participate in their children’s development.
Newborn babies can seem tiny and frail, but they are always beautiful.
Huggies has tips and advice on not only how to care for your newborn baby but also on parenting so you can feel more confident about dealing with any bouts of stress and anxiety as well as the overall needs and demands of a newborn baby.
From the moment that your baby is born they begin to change.
Your baby will continually amaze you as they grow and develop. We take you through some of the changes that happen as they grow into toddlers (around 30 months), and provide you with some tips on how you can help them along their way.
Your baby should develop a great deal in the first 12 weeks that they are home from the hospital.
During the first week, your bub can already focus on your face. Let Huggies guide you through the early 12 baby weeks, from first controlled heads movements to first vocalisations. We’ll take you through milestones your baby should be achieving and how to stimulate further development.
From planning the party and creating baby birthday invitations, to foods, birthday games for birthdays, and birthday cake ideas for the big day – our party ideas will help you create birthday memories you’ll keep for a lifetime.
Traditionally, parents held a christening for their new baby to mark the beginning of their upbringing in the Christian faith. However, many parents now choose to christen their child for other reasons. Learn more with Huggies.
Creating the dream baby room or nursery is usually one of the first things parents-to-be will consider. But with so many different options for colours, furniture and all the rest, there are lots of decisions to be made. Luckily with Huggies Interior Design Ideas you don’t have to be an interior decorator to come up with something you’ll love!
