Caring for your Baby and Caring for your Child website and booklets aim to help you to care for yourself and your child during your child’s first five years – read more at HSE – Babies and Toddlers.
Public Health Nurses give these booklets to every new parent during their visits and the HSE have developed the content as an online resource also. The HSE asked parents what information they needed. They said they wanted common-sense information and tips on the general care of their child, their child’s growth and development, what to do if their child has a problem and who to get in touch with for more help and support.
The information is based on the most up-to-date, accurate information available within the Health Services, and on opinion from professionals in child health, support services, voluntary organisations and parent groups.
Each baby is special and for some of you, the details in this website is only the beginning of your search for information on how to do the best for your baby and you.
