Ain’t That The Truth: Busting parenting myths and raising healthy kids

Ain’t That The Truth

Is sugar always a bad idea for kids? Do I need to know the Heimlich manoeuvre? Is the five second rule just a myth? Listening to our brand new podcast Ain’t That The Truth is like having a very clever nurse-y friend on tap, serving up parenting truths – and sorting helpful fact from pesky fiction.

Ain’t That The Truth

Dr Google has become the go-to for every parenting question under the sun, but wading through search results for answers we can trust can feel a like bit going down a (possibly unreliable) rabbit hole. It’s exhausting and confusing. Thankfully, our new podcast sparks the opposite of those feelings.
