Interesting new research into babies and children, information on a serious virus impacting Australian newborns, and a social media baby-shaming trend, were among the most-clicked Babyology posts for June. Leading the way as the most popular post last month was our look at the new social media trend, known as “baby shaming”. It attracted a mixed response from Babyologists. You were either appalled or had a giggle.
Our post on the Home Birth Barbie images had plenty of chins wagging.
We ran an informative post on the potentially dangerous parechovirus which has been sweeping through some states of Australia, infecting newborns. It was the third most-clicked post of the month.
Next came a look at new research into postnatal depression, which revealed just how common it can be four years post-birth.
Rounding off our top five was a post on Sids and Kids’ new Cot-to-Bed Safety App, which is aimed at helping parents make that all-important decision on when to transition their child from a cot to a bed.
