We're going digital 9 - 15 November 2020!


We've teamed up with the #DearFutureYou campaign and invite you to handwrite a letter to your baby/child about your experience during lockdown & share with other parents/carers using #DearFutureYou. More info below about the digital exhibition.


All expectant/parents/carers attending the events in the week & entering the #DearFutureYou letters will be entered into the #BabyWeekLeeds prize draw to be in a chance to win a stay with breakfast at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Leeds. 


This year we're celebrating 5 years of Baby Week with a new resource page, action plan and Facebook group.

We know it's been hard during lockdown but we want you all to 'Stay Safe, Stay Connected' - hence our 2020 theme.


We are working with the Leeds City Councils’ Woodland Creation Initiative, Child Friendly Leeds, White Rose Energy and Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS to create a BABY WEEK FOREST and plant a tree for every baby born in 2020! Want to get involved? 


Baby Week originates from Semana Do Bebe in Brazil. Find out more with our highlights report & resource page.

FROM Previous YEAR

Baby Week Leeds began in 2016 and now sharing best practice nationally! 

Last year, we worked with Leeds Teaching Hospitals to launch a new digital group called Facemums offers help and advice from midwives and support from other expectant mums. It was launched in Baby Week Leeds 2019, which saw over 100 special events. Read more here.

50 things’ was developed with families to produce a resource that offers experiences to build skills and language, supports brain development in young children, as well as being great fun. It is based on the simple idea that doing fun, low-cost or no-cost activities with your family, and talking about them, is a great way to support the growth and development of your child’s confidence and skills. 

Tick-off 50 fantastic things for you and your child to experience together.

The app '50 things to do' will launch on the opening event at Baby Week Leeds.



50 Things To Do Before You’re Five gives you 50 activities that parents and carers can support their children to try out and repeat.

Thank you for visiting!


Baby Week Leeds now running for the fifth year are pleased to share evidence and report successful partnerships. We have had interest from several local authorities and aim to provide a toolkit and training if your city would like to host. The founder, Lucy Potter who completed a Winston Churchill Fellowship, which helped her discover Semana Do Bebe (Baby Week Brazil) formed a partnership with Brazil to bring it to Leeds.
