Study Overview

Called the ‘First 1,000 Days Longitudinal Study', the research will focus on parents' experiences and attitudes during the first 1,000 days of their child's life – the time from the start of pregnancy to a child's second birthday.

The First 1,000 Days is a special time and a period of great opportunity; for the last 60 years NCT has supported parents during their First 1,000 Days, understanding that this period is a critical time in a baby's development and wellbeing. Scientific evidence confirms that the love, care and support a baby receives during this time will have more impact on their future than any other, staying with them for the rest of her life.
