Hi there! I developed – or rather am continually developing this site in my quest to learn more about infant development, behaviour, activity, play and many other areas. As a doctor of Clinical Psychology I am naturally interested in what we do and why, how we learn and develop and what knowledge and research is out there.
This site is part a blog about my experiences as a first (update: and second…and third!) time mum, and part a resource for child development and activity ideas. I also wanted to write about and draw on my experience as a psychologist so I’ve included articles on relevant literature and psychological issues I come across in my research.
Press and enquiries:
Please email me regarding any requests for guest posts, articles, specific advice or if you want to share any of my pages or photos. Permission is required for using my photos and words on other sites. Several sites have shared my information but please contact me first and give full credit and links back to my page. Please contact for any further issues not listed above. Many thanks.
Disclaimer: Please note, nothing on this site should be taken as direct advice or in place of guidance and advice from a qualified health care professional who you have consulted with regarding your child/issue/problem. If you have any questions, concerns or issues regarding your child’s development or well-being then please contact your GP, Health Visitor, Paediatrician, Midwife, or other relevant health care professional.
There is a wealth of literature and information out there; the information, literature, research and links that I chose to write about and cite should not be taken as a definitive answer, or suitable answer to your personal issues, or to indicate that it is the only research/literature/info available. They are merely areas that I have found on my travels and found interesting and that I decided to write about. Please make up your own mind about whether these are relevant to you or whether you wish to search for your own research/literature/information. Research and the knowledge base are constantly evolving and being updated, and there will also be more recent knowledge and research out there that I have not covered.
Thanks for stopping by
