HSE Booklets on Caring for Your Child

The HSE Caring for your Baby and Caring for your Child website and booklets aim to help you to care for yourself and your child during your child’s first five years. Public Health Nurses give these booklets to every new parent during their visits and the HSE has developed the content as an online resource also.

The information is based on the most up-to-date, accurate information available within the Health Services, and on opinion from professionals in child health, support services, voluntary organisations and parent groups.
