Top five news posts in April

Can you believe it’s already May? How is this even possible? I’m pretty sure we skipped most of February and March and entirely missed April.

If you’re feeling like you were MIA in April, then here is a great re-cap of what you missed.

Our most popular news posts last month delved deep into the world of crawling newborns, celebrity mums and heartbreaking stories of love and loss. Come and take a look.

Our most popular post last month was a video showcasing just how instinctive newborns are. Watch as a newborn, only a few hours old, surprises us all and crawls his way to his mother’s breast.

After all, breast milk is a very strong incentive.

Last month we also brought you the incredibly heartbreaking story of a father, left to raise newborn triplets and two older daughters on his own after his wife passed away 10 days post-birth. It’s hard to imagine anything more devastating for this beautiful family. Come and meet the man holding it all together for the sake of his children.

Former Home and Away actress Christie Hayes spoke out last month about her shock pregnancy, only six weeks after the birth of her first baby. The busy mum of two (born exactly 11 months apart in the same hospital room) has an incredibly important message for all parents out there.

We shared another incredibly touching story of newly-weds and new parents Nancy and Charlie McLean who tragically lost their newborn son, Edison Charles, just a few days after birth. Get the tissues ready for ‘Love them like this is the last moment you have with them’: Grieving parents’ mission to honour their baby boy. 


Our final top news story in April touches on a subject all mums struggle with – body issues. But model Tess Holliday is speaking out and reminding the world that every woman’s body is beautiful, especially during those incredible months of pregnancy and post-pregnancy.  This model’s message is something all of us need to read. 

We hope you are enjoying the cooler weather that comes with May. Stay tuned for more parenting news and features as we continue our journey through 2016.
