She said, “My kids have bottomless wells. I feel like a constant feeding machine to them. Louis doesn’t understand the social distance, he wants to cuddle everything, especially babies younger than him. ‘
She later added that Prince Louis has gone running everywhere and said, “If you put Louis down, he’s gone.”
Kate attended to talk to BBC Breakfast’s family and Louise Minchin about the BBC Tiny Happy People initiative, which provides free resources to parents and is supported by the Royal Foundation.
Kate described the resources on Tiny Happy People’s online platform as “ gold dust ” for parents, adding that she wished something similar had been available when she had Prince George.
She said, “So much focus, especially during pregnancy and when you have a newborn is physical development. But what I discovered lacked the support to promote their emotional and mental development … And it’s just that I think you really need the support. ‘
The Duchess has been involved in the project for several months after visiting the Tiny Happy People team at Broadcasting House in London last November to participate in a creative workshop where she worked with the team on some of the video resources and social media content.
Kate even contributed to two cartoons – one about the ‘science of singing to bump’ during pregnancy and another about how eye contact is key to a baby’s learning.
The BBC said the Duchess helped with the character and background development for the two animations.
On the occasion of the launch, The Duchess last week met three families involved in the creation and testing of Tiny Happy People.
The Duchess spoke to Ryan and his eight-month-old daughter Mia, as well as parents Henrietta, Abu and their 11-month-old daughter Amirah; and Kerry, Darren and their son Dexter, two.
The Duchess spoke to the families about how they have used the resources and how they have seen their children’s language and communication develop as a result.
Kate said of the project, “Families and caregivers are central to feeding the next generation of happy, healthy adults, but sometimes it can be difficult to know where to go for advice.
Tiny Happy People is an invaluable resource that provides parents and caregivers with support and tips, as well as simple activities to help children develop the language skills they need to get the best possible start in life.
“I am delighted to be part of his journey and hope families across the UK will be happy to discover the resources.”
