Baby Brain

Baby Brain

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.

 Ψ

This site is partly a blog about my experiences as a first (update: and second!) time mum, but I also wanted to write about and draw on my experience as a psychologist. So, I’m also writing about what literature and psychological issues that I find interesting and I’ve come across when reading up about various child related issues.

A lot of the pages on here will be works in progress and will probably be updated over time; if you have any relevant comments or knowledge of any relevant literature please feel free to post and link me to the reference site or article. It might also take me some time to complete everything due to having a Little Lovely (LL) baby to look after and other future commitments such as eventually going back to work and also having a LL to look after. I might also change my mind and decide to add different or additional information on some issues in the future depending on my experiences to date or other (unknown at present) influences!

Press and enquiries:

Please contact me on the email below regarding any requests for guest posts, articles, specific advice or if you wish to share any of my pages or photos. Several sites have shared my information but please contact me first and give full credit and links back to my page. Please contact me should you need to share any photos or 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 and 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 the definitive and only answer to an issue, 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 so I decided to write about them. 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 so there might also be more recent knowledge and research out there that I have not covered.

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information. If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us.
