Hi subscriber!

Due to popular demand we have more free flash cards (in multiple languages and with parent answer sheets!) and easy to make ‘busy bag’ activities.

Got a baby who’s nearly ready for solids? Check out the latest news on commercial baby foods concerns, how to determine if your baby is ready for solids and why it’s important not to start too early. Plus we have some yummy recipes which you can incorporate into part of the whole family’s meals!

They say a change is as good as a holiday – read our low cost, clever ideas for redecorating, organising and making the most of your children’s bedroom space.

We’d love to hear from you – you can contribute to the website or send feedback on what you’d like to see on Parenthub.

Remember to tell your friends to subscribe to Parenthub eNews, so that they too are always up-to-date with the latest parenting news!

Happy parenting!

Beth :-)
