A free programme of talks has been put together for you, providing practical tips and great advice from a panel of top experts on a variety of subjects you want to know about – including sleeping, feeding and first aid.

Becoming a parent is exciting if not a little daunting. It opens up a world of questions and demand for information as you strive to make sure your new arrival or your toddler has the best, safest and most healthy start to life possible.

We have developed an exceptional free programme of talks, which provide friendly advice and practical tips and information from a panel of handpicked experts. Subjects include feeding, babywearing, childcare options, first aid and sleep.

There is no need to book, just drop in and take a seat at the Expert Advice Workshops when you’re at the show.
