Hos­pi­tal Nor­west Pri­vate BE­ING the first baby in his mum Laura and dad Daniel’s fam­i­lies for 29 years, Liam is never want­ing for af­fec­tion.

It also helps that both sets of grand­par­ents live close to his home at Baulkham Hills. Laura says she en­joyed a trou­ble-free first preg­nancy and a smooth de­liv­ery.

“He was six days over­due and I had a long labour, about 26 hours, with about half that time in hos­pi­tal,” she says. “But he came nat­u­rally and was per­fect when he ar­rived.”

With two very ac­tive par­ents, Laura says Liam is al­ready a reg­u­lar at week­end cricket, net­ball and soc­cer matches, and started his swim­ming lessons at six months old.

“We’ve man­aged pretty well,” she says. “We do lots of out­ings, to play groups and swim­ming groups.”

Liam slept through the night at nine months, although Laura says she was only ever up a cou­ple of times a night. “He has al­ways been pretty good, and never re­ally un­set­tled.”
