#AskUs about… Responsive Parenting

Babies have Needs not Wants

It is impossible to spoil a baby. They are not capable of learning a routine or self soothing.

Responding to their cues for comfort and food helps them feel secure, even if they continue to cry while being held.

When a baby’s need for love and attention are met they feel safe, secure and happy. This results in the release of Oxytocin and enhances their brains.

Ask your midwife about responsive parenting and responsive feeding.
