Baby and Toddler Friendly Show
   On 30 October in Sheffield from 9 til 2.30. For advice, 
   information and ideas on maternity, babies and toddlers. 

Breastfeeding Moms More Agressive than Those Who Use Bottles
   Women who breast-feed are far more likely to demonstrate 
   a "mama bear" effect - aggressively protecting their 
   infants and themselves - than women who bottle-feed their 
   babies or non-mothers, suggests a new study. It may be 
   providing mothers with a buffer against the many stressors 
   new mums face while at the same time, giving mothers an 
   extra burst of courage if they need to defend themselves 
   or their child. 

Helicopter parents can impede child's ability to play
   Parental safety concerns may prevent children from getting 
   good exercise, according to a new study that examined how 
   families use parks. Researchers observed children in 
   three age ranges, one of them being 0-5.

Autism risk rises for siblings of autistic children 
   Younger siblings of children with autism are more likely 
   than previously thought to develop the condition themselves, 
   according to a study backed by charity Autism Speaks.
