I had learned about weaning when I was at college but it has been a while since I had cared for a baby of this age. It was great to be able to do this course and refresh myself- it gave me the confidence I needed.

I had been working in the pre-school room for a few years so I had forgotten much of the stages with weaning. I also knew the weaning guidelines had changed recently but wasn't sure what the new ones were. The course was so informative- I feel totally up to date now and confident in my practice with our younger babies going through this stage. I have also been able to pass on advice to parents which is great. A great little course and would thoroughly recommend it to those working with young babies.

I did this course as my grandson is coming up to this age and I didn't want to be doing the wrong thing (I care for him one day a week). I thoroughly enjoyed it and am looking forward to preparing all the lovely foods for him. I was a bit worried about studying on the computer but it was very straightforward and Pamela in the office was so helpful when I rang with questions. Thank-you very much- a wonderful course.

Margaret, Grandma
