    Hi @ybanksy - Welcome to the community & thank you for joining. If you would consider used baby equipment, there seem to be a few places you might consider such as Gumtree, & Mum2mum. There are also some shops & charity shops such as Scope etc. as well as local ads in the papers.
    There's also some info on a healthy diet here: https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/eat-well/
    Is this the sort of help you're looking for? If not, please do say.
