As tired as we parents are, babies’ nighttime needs for us are just as important as their daytime needs for us. Babies need our consistent reassurance and responsiveness to help them grow. The challenge is to find a way to ensure the most needs are met most of the time consistently and lovingly.
During our time together this evening we will discuss:
• Understanding standard infant sleep patterns
• Establishing nighttime routines
• Developing healthy sleep habits
• The problem with sleep training
We hope you’ll join us!
The Attached at the Heart Parenting Education Program curriculum training provides parents, child advocates and professionals much needed insight into childrearing with specific tools to help parents learn more about child development, neuroscience, and positive discipline, to trust the intuitive knowledge of their child, ultimately building a foundation that will strengthen healthy child attachment.
