Child Care News for Parents & Carers
April 11, 2018
Welcome, this week suggestions to ensure you have the confidence and support structures in place to continue breastfeeding when your child starts care and serve and return techniques for promoting the development of neural connections in young children.
How can mums manage breastfeeding and child care?
Breastfeeding is chance to nourish and bond, and the good news is that just because you start your tot at child care, you don't necessarily need to stop the milk supply.

With some forward-planning and day-to-day support, it is possible to continue breastfeeding when your child is in care.
What does 'serve and return' have to do with babies' brains?
Although 'serve and return' sounds like something the Williams sisters would do on a tennis court, this term actually relates to the back-and-forth interactions that shape a tot's brain architecture.

Serve and return occurs when an infant or young child gestures, babbles or cries and a grown-up responds with appropriate eye contact, words or actions. These two-way interactions are very important because they build neural connections in the child's brain and create a foundation for all future development, learning and wellbeing.
