About Little Lullaby
What is Little Lullaby?
Little Lullaby is a site for young parents, run by baby charity The Lullaby Trust and backed by the Big Lottery Fund.
Launched April 2016, the Little Lullaby website is an online forum where young and expectant parents can make friends, share advice, experiences, and support each other through pregnancy, birth and beyond.
Little Lullaby users can learn about reducing the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and become a Lullaby Trust Ambassador. By becoming an Ambassador, users receive peer-to-peer education skills, enabling them to go into their communities and deliver safer sleep talks to other young parents.
Is it free?
Little Lullaby is completely free to join.
