#baby101 at the Johnson’s Baby Sense Seminars
The Johnson’s Baby Sense Seminars are back to deliver the latest parenting advice for new and soon to be parents.




Now in their 11th year, the Johnson’s Baby Sense Seminars are back to deliver the latest parenting advice for new and soon to be parents.  The expert speaker panel will share invaluable insights and guidance for all parents embarking on this very special but sometimes challenging journey.  This year’s industry professionals are Meg Faure (occupational therapist and Baby Sense co-author), Sr Ann Richardson (specialist nurse practitioner, author and parent coach), Tina Otte (midwife and special editor of Your Pregnancy magazine) and paediatrician, Dr Claudia Gray.

The seminars will address the challenges arising during specific periods of the parenting journey with BABY as the morning session theme and BIRTH & NEWBORN for the afternoon seminar. Dr Claudia Gray will kick off the first session, demystifying your baby’s health concerns and giving tips on how to boost immunity and decrease the risk of allergies. Meg Faure will follow by taking a look at your baby’s development and how to stimulate him/her through play to ensure optimal physical, cognitive and emotional development.  Sr Ann Richardson will close the session covering how to establish a sense-able sleep routine and age appropriate sleep training.

For the expecting parents, the afternoon birth & newborn seminar is not to be missed - the ultimate crash course on birth and baby’s first four months.  Tina Otte will discuss your newborn’s amazing capabilities and why skin on skin contact is essential for mom and baby in the magical hour after birth.  Learn the secrets to a calm newborn, ways to manage your crying baby and simple strategies to prevent colic in an informative talk by Meg Faure.  Sr Ann Richardson will take you through the first six weeks of #baby101 from umbilical cord care, nappy changes, feeding, sleeping, nappy rashes, sniffles and snuffles, cradle cap and more.

To further enhance bonding with your new bundle of joy, the Johnson’s Baby massage workshop will open the world of communication with your baby through touch and massage, with an interactive demonstration of some hands-on massage skills and tips.
