Trying to get pregnant can be a stressful process, so a good way of easing up the path is recognising the early signs of pregnancy.

Being pregnant is such an amazing and unique journey and you will want  to live your pregnancy, week by week, to the fullest.

Discussing baby names is one of the most entertaining tasks when preparing for the baby’s arrival – and one of the most difficult ones, too!

So, you’re pregnant! There’s a lot to think about, but first things first: Find out your due date with our pregnancy calculator!

Now that you're in the last stages of pregnancy, you must be so excited for seeing your baby's face for the first time. How will those first 24 hours be like?

Your baby’s first year is a real adventure full of baby milestones – every little thing is brand new and exciting!

If you are about to become a mum, you may already have decided between breastfeeding and formula feeding.

Baby colic is an affliction that can make your first parenting months harder than expected.

The pregnancy test, that moment of truth all future mummies yearn for and fear. But when is the best moment to take it?

How to get pregnant is probably not a secret for you. However, you can increase your chances with CaptainMums’ tips for getting pregnant!

You want to have a baby, so you’re reading about ovulation kits, ovulation calculators, fertile windows… But what if you have irregular periods?

Getting pregnant with PCOS: Is it possible, or should I start coming to terms with the fact that I won’t be able to be a mother?

Over the last few years, researchers have worked on identifying signs of autism in toddlers. Getting an early diagnosis of such a mental condition may be essential to minimise its effects in adulthood.

Your little one is not a baby anymore, but that doesn’t mean that you have to stop looking for development milestones!

Your gorgeous toddler is changing so fast! Before you know it, he is going to reach the 15 month old milestones, another fascinating stage in a toddler's development.

The 18 month old milestones will surprise you by just how much your toddler is able to grow and develop in a matter of weeks.

As bad as it may sound, kids have their own way to coerce you: pestering. “Mum, I want this! Please, please, if you don't buy it, I'll cry”.

As a parent, you need to understand the importance of healthy snacks for kids, as well as how to use these 'mini meals' to ensure that they get all the nutrition they need.

Fussy eaters can wreak havoc with mealtime. As they grow up, kids can feel like not having a bite to eat, which can be really frustrating.

Past the most innocent stage of your baby's life, you will probably have to face kid swearing.

I've read raspberry leaf tea is meant to bring on labour, as well as your usual sex, lots of movement (bouncing on a birthing ball, going for walks etc) and everything else that's pops up on google! I'd only recommend ignoring the hot curry method, there's meant to be nothing behind it and can just cause further discomfort! Of course I've to be...

What a nan. Lol... She's probably in the best position to tell/show you what you are doing "wrong" why don't she come for a visit to your home and show you what she does to put him to sleep. It may be something as simple as the choice of socks she puts on your baby or the sleeping position. If she however can't get the baby to sleep in your home th...

Hi. I'm currently expecting my second baby and plan to mix feed this time round (half breastmilk&halfformula). Using formula is entirely an individuals choice. You shouldn't be frowned upon for making that decision. You have to do what's right for you and your family. I am I Neonatal nurse and yes I would recommend breast/Breast milk if your baby d...

my 5 weeks old little girl is formula and breast fed. She lost a lot of weight at the start because bf babies do as your milk takes longer to thicken up. Personally I'd advice anyone to feed for the first 3-7 days that way the baby gets all the good milk!But I don't see the issues wi4h formula at then end of the day as long as baby's happy and not ...

I initially said that I would like to breast feed but couldn't for medical reasons but tbh I'm delighted I didn't. I was very sick after my baby was born so being able to get somebody else to feed was great. It is very much a personal choice and you should never feel bullied into it, do what feels right for you. Becoming a new mum is stressful enou...
