Be a part of our research
If you are a first-time parent with a baby younger than 4 months old and living in Victoria, you will be asked if you would like to contribute to important research by completing two 20-minute surveys: one when your baby is 12 months and another at 18 months. For each completed survey, participants will receive a $10 grocery voucher.
Hearing a bit about you, your baby and your baby’s feeding and play is so valuable as it helps our researchers to find out more about how to best support parents like you and continue to give babies the best start to life!
