The Galway Parent Network designed the Building a Happy Baby posters which were launched at a successful event at University Hospital Galway on the 7th of March 2018.

Dr Malie Coyne, spoke on the day along with Nicole McGuigan from the Galway Parent Network, Susan Forde from TUSLA and  Councillor John Walsh from the Galway City Council. Many members of the Early Years Child and Young Persons Services Committee, partners in the creation and distribution of the poster, were also in attendance. 

The Early Years CYPSC team in attendance, missing for photo is Morgan Mee.

“Parents need to be aware that a lot of the advice they read in best-selling parenting books and websites is simply not supported by evidence.  Often parents can end up doing all the wrong things for all the right reasons.”    Nicole McGuigan, Galway Parent Network

 

Morgan Mee, from the CYPSC, wrote an informative piece on the launch which includes links to download the posters for free:
