Oh baby! Remembering those precious first moments

Having a baby is one of life’s greatest joys. Seeing them grow up is everything you dream of and more, but it’s those first precious moments that took you by surprise.

Not only was your baby learning about the world, but you were learning about how to be a good mum or dad, and how to carefully bathe, bed and feed them.

In the 70s and 80s we weren’t afforded all the luxuries of modern parenting – we had to do the hard yards without baby monitors on iPads and electronic baby swings!

Here’s the things we remember so fondly. What else would you add?
