Parents and guardians of babies under 12 months are advised not to cover their mouths with facemasks as it could cause breathing difficulties.

The advice comes from Devon, Somerset and Torbay Trading Standards Service.

It follows reports that face masks for babies, also known as 'baby masks' or 'cute masks', are being sold in some parts of the country and online.

Nicola said: “The neighbours kindly let me take a look and sure enough there were two more cubs, who were also very hungry and crying. I popped all three cubs...

Now that I’m a dad of two, my perspective is COMPLETELY different to when I was at the coalface of childcare for an ‘only child’.

Here’s 5 Things I Learned When Baby #2 Arrived:

Staff at the international animal welfare charity, The Donkey Sanctuary, have taken on the task of hand-rearing a new born foal after it was rejected by its mother, who herself had been rescued by the charity.
