New campaign to involve dads in children’s learning

   for engaging dads.

Controlled Crying Harms Baby's Brains
   Leaving young babies to cry themselves to sleep can 
   harm their developing brains, a parenting expert 
   claims.  Dr Penelope Leach says recent scientific 
   tests show high levels of the stress hormone cortisol 
   develop in babies when no one answers their cries.  
   Dr Leach suggested unattended extreme crying bouts of 
   30 minutes or more could be damaging to babies. 

Sugar drops 'ease baby jab pain' 
   Babies should be given something sugary before a jab 
   to reduce pain, researchers say.  Newborns are less 
   likely to cry if given a few drops of a sugar solution 
   before immunisation.
