TLG has just had an article published based on our study of mothers with physical disabilities who are caring for their young children.

Baby Care Equipment
Thursday, 28 July 2016 16:22

What can I buy to help me take care of my baby and myself?

This chart was created as guide to what may be purchased and used by parents and caregivers to care for a child from birth to 3 without doing more harm to themselves. We looked for universal design, that is, equipment that can be used by caregivers with or without a disability and across a wide range of disabilities. See chart (PDF)

Most, but not all of the items, have been used by our client families. Items that have not been used but look helpful are included. For example, the Doona Stroller was seen at the ABC Kids Expo (a baby care trade show); it looks good but we did not have the opportunity to place it into a car and therefore cannot comment on how easy or hard this is to do.
