Our Health Visiting team is proud to launch their new ‘Healthy Child Wolves’ app, giving parents quick and easy access to health advice and practical tips for their 0-5 year old.

What’s Available on the App

You’ll find lots of tips, advice and signposting to support families, from pregnancy to getting your child ready for school, and everything in between. 

There’s dedicated sections for:
  • My pregnancy
  • My new baby
  • My toddler
  • Getting my child ready for school

Each section includes a wide range of information and advice.

These include:
  • Common illnesses, first aid and keeping your baby safe
  • Breastfeeding, bottle feeding and introducing solids
  • Sleep and safer sleeping
  • Teething and dental health 
  • Looking after your emotional health and wellbeing

You can also find out more about your Health Visiting team and other local NHS children’s services, plus advice on what to do if your child is unwell. 

And there are trackers should you wish to record your baby’s sleeps and feeds.
