Hi all!
We are a group of developmental psychologists at Cardiff University and are currently looking for parents of babies aged 18 months or younger to take part in our study about parenting. We were hoping that we would find some parents interested in this here!
We have found that there is so much advice out there about how parents are supposed to care for their babies, but not nearly as much information about how parents actually care for their babies. So, we have devised our study to find out more about this.
The study consists of an online questionnaire, the Baby Care Questionnaire, which should take about 15 minutes to answer, and consists of questions about sleeping, feeding, soothing and childcare arrangements, plus some demographic information. The survey is completely anonymous. After you have filled out the questionnaire, we will send you a gift for your baby as well!

The questionnaire can be found here, by clicking on the Union Jack:

Hope many people can take part!

Do you live in London, yes or no! You could at least pretend to be interested in where us non Londoners live!

Hi ChazzerChaser, we used that question wanting to simply find out whether people live in a big city or not, and no offense was intended by its wording or the available answers at all. Since this questionnaire is part of a larger inter-cultural study, we have to simplify certain questions to make it accessible to all cultures and countries involved. Because of that we are using a very basic question set for residential areas, so we can use it in as many countries as possible. Again, no offense was intended and we hope you understand our reasons for setting the questionnaire up as it is.

To everyone else, this questionnaire is still up and looking for participants! It would be great to hear from you all!
