Rank #1: What To Do

Podcast cover

Suddenly being plunged into life as a ‘stay-at-home parent’ can be bewildering. Despite having lots of ‘stuff’ to do with a baby - nappy changes alone take an hour a day in the early days - the weeks can seem to stretch endlessly ahead of you. Some love the freedom, others feel anxious at the thought of filling the days. Mumsnetters share their own stories and tips for making the time spent alone with your baby feel fulfilling and (generally!) fun, rather than fraught.

Getting out and about with babies and small children
Never does the idea of simply leaving the house seem so fraught with difficulty as it does with a baby or toddler. Parents of little ones are often told to ‘get outside’ every day - but experience tells us that’s precisely when it all goes wrong. Mumsnetters share the disasters and successes they’ve had while out and about - plus their tips for travelling further afield. Find out how to get through the dreaded long car journey with a baby or toddler, how to survive the plane-trip challenge without losing your cool - and how to care a bit less about the tuts of unhelpful strangers!

In this podcast we take a look at the psychology of play - and find out what’s really going on in babies and small children’s brains when they’re doing it. Does it matter what kind of play they (or you!) gravitate toward? Should you provide lots of stimulation - or is a bit of boredom a good thing? If, like lots of us, you find 20 minutes of pretend shops or playing ‘horsies’ somewhat wearing, Mumsnetters have cunning ways of keeping a child amused while you have a bit of a lie-down - plus brilliant thoughts on which toys really work for each stage of the game, and which aren’t worth shelling out for.

Rank #4: Friends

This podcast takes a look at friendship - for children, and adults. Find out when children start to have 'real' friendships rather than playing side-by-side, and how to tackle the vexed matter of sharing without too much upset. How do Mumsnet parents cope with the politics of the soft play, where one parent’s ‘energetic adventurer’ is another parent’s little horror? And what about friendships between parents - we’ll meet some mothers who have become lifelong friends after meeting online on Mumsnet, and hear advice about what to do if nursery-gate friendships go pear-shaped.
