When you hear fathers talking about their newborns someone will often say:
'All they do for the first few months is eat, sleep and poo!'.
There are books and courses and whole organisations dedicated to helping parents to help their child with the first two: 'this is how you help your baby get a good latch on the breast'; 'this is how you tell that she is hungry'; 'this is how you know that he is tired'; 'this is how you can help her go to sleep'.

Fifteen months - who wouldn't want a bare bum when it's warm enough?
Bond more closely with your baby.
And help out.
