Welcome to Parenting articles

As a parent, you now have a little person completely dependent on you.

Parenting skills come naturally to some new parents, but most of us can always learn a bit more. If you need answers to your questions and guidance on a wide variety of parenting issues, look no further.

Women's fitness

Shedding baby weight isn’t easy for everyone.

A realistic post-pregnancy fitness regime will not only help you lose weight but also help give you the energy to care for your baby and also boost your mental wellbeing. Plan a fitness program that is achievable and enjoyable with Huggies.

Child safety

Babies are vulnerable to a wide variety of things we would take for granted.

Ensuring your child’s safety is a top priority. Child-proofing your home can seem pretty simple but it is actually a big task that requires time, planning, thought and a few tools. Find out more about how to ensure your child is safe around the house, in the car, and when you’re all out and about.

New parents

By the time the 9 months of pregnancy and hours of labour are over, most new parents well and truly grasp the size and importance of the parenting journey ahead.

Don’t worry – you are not alone and Huggies is committed to helping new parents on this journey every step of the way. We can help with advice on being a new parent and how to make the most of this special time with your family.

Working mums

Looking after a new baby can be a particularly stressful time for you if you are a working mum, especially if you’re like most mothers and put everyone else’s needs before yours.

Read more about organising your responsibilities so you can maximise time with baby while also getting some time for yourself and even your partner (remember him?). Time out for you and for romance is something every working mum is entitled to.

Parenting advice

No parent is superhuman. The truth is we all need a bit of help when it comes to the many aspects of parenting.

Huggies offers help on a broad range of topics, from how to get financial assistance from the government, to how to comfort a crying baby, and even how to evaluate potential pre-schools for your child.

Parents and children

Mental and physical stimulation is a key part of your child’s development process so it’s important that you take your child out to new places.

Huggies has a huge list of child-safe activities for you and your child. We also tell you what baby items you need to take to make it a fun, stress-free day for all.

Books

Browse through our book reviews to help you find that ‘just perfect book for you’.

We add new ones here every month. There are sample chapters for each book so you can see if you really like it before you go out and buy it. You can also chat to other mums about it in the Huggies Forum at any time. Get back into reading today!

Mums and Bubs TV

There are currently 13 episodes in our Mums & Bubs program. All the episodes are listed within this page so work your way through the series at your own pace.

Hosted by Rachel Friend, each episode is presented as a full episode or you can choose to watch each segment any time you like.

Budgeting for a family

Family budgeting is all about learning to live within your means.

You don’t need fancy calculators, magic or science to create a family budget (though the online calculators can make it all a lot more fun). Follow our tips and you’ll be on top of your money plan before you know it.

eBooks

Huggies has developed a special range of eBooks for you to download free, print and keep on hand when you need them.

Time management tips

One of the biggest challenges many parents face is how to manage their time effectively.

Here are a series of articles, e-books and free downloadable templates that you can have to hand at all times. They’re here to help you with tackling everything from saving time in the morning and managing the family budget, through to practical house cleaning tips and meal planning strategies.
