The winter weather has already arrived in many parts of Australia and unfortunately that does mean an increase in hospital stays for some of our more vulnerable little people.
Over the years we’ve spoken to quite a few experts and posted some great ideas right here on our blog to help families when navigating a hospital stay with their child.
To help make it a little easier, we’ve put together this post with links to some helpful ideas that are great all year round, but especially useful for a hospital stay during winter.
Take a look at;
