"When your child happily skips into nursery, waving and smiling then you know you’re onto a winner! My daughter was a baby born in lockdown, however you would never have known as she’s become so sociable! I love at the end of the day there’s a round up on her day and how she’s been getting on, and if you’re in a rush you always have the app which shows nap time, changes, what she’s eaten and her day with some snaps!
