    Frequently asked questions


    How long do I have access to the course

    You will have an additional 8 weeks after the course ends

    What age should my baby be to start this course? 

    We think it is best to start the course when your baby is aged between 0 and 6 months. As this course covers starting your feeding journey if your baby is 7 months you will not find it as beneficial. We will be launching a follow on course about weaning from 6 months coming soon so keep an eye out and sign up to register your interest below.

    How do I access the course? Can I access it on my mobile? 

    You can access the course via Teachable.com or alternatively you can download the app (we would suggest you do). At the moment the app is only available on IOS, however you can still access it via your phone through the website.

    Is it ok to sign up after the course has started?

    Yes, of course however we would advise that you do only in the first week so that you get the most out of the live sessions. Our course is self-led and you can consume the information whenever you have the time. 

    Can I join the course from anywhere in the world and will the guidelines be the same?

    Yes, you can join the course from anywhere in the world. There are some differences from country to country in terms of foods however most of the advice is research based and applies to any child, so we would love to have you on board. 

    Can I check out in my own currency?

    Yes we currently accept payment in EUR, GBP, USD, CAD and AUD

    What is your refund policy?

    You are entitled to a full refund within one week of your payment, in accordance with Distance Selling regulations, provided that the course has not already started. We cannot refund fees in respect of cancellation after this time but we can facilitate a transfer to the course at a different date. We cannot offer partial refunds to students who do not finish a course. In the event that you are unable to complete the course within the intended time period, please contact academy@mummycooks.com to discuss an extension.

    Why should i choose the premium package?

    Do you feel like you need an extra helping hand in achieving your weaning goals? If so, the premium package is for you. We will initially ask you to answer a questioner to see if you are suitable for the 1:1 consultation. If suitable Siobhan will do a 1:1 video call to get you set up for the course. Following this Siobhan will support you directly each week as you move through the course with a video call each week. On completion of the course Siobhan will work with you on a plan for the next six months of weaning and provide you with any material you might require.
