General tips:
  1. Read to your baby.  It's one of the best things you can do and it is never to early to start.
  2. Talk to your baby all the time.  Not baby talk.  Just speak normally.  Tell the baby what you are doing when you are changing nappies/diapers, cooking, washing, etc.  This will encourage early speech development.
  3. Try to stay fit during pregnancy and get back into shape as soon as your doctor/physiotherapist says it is all right after childbirth.  This is particularly important if you plan on having future babies as it helps keep your weight from increasing more and more after each pregnancy.
  4. These days, doctors recommend placing your babies on their backs when sleeping to reduce Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).  Speak to your doctor about this.
  5. Because of the recommendation in 4., babies need lots of "tummy time" when they are awake and when you are closely watching them.  This helps stop the head (which is very soft when they are newly born) from developing an irregular shape.
