A baby settling strategy | Possums for Mothers and Babies

A baby settling strategy


If your baby is unsettled we recommend that you look into the evidence-based approach offered by The Possums Centre, which includes careful assessment of breastfeeding and feeds, consideration of the baby's sensory needs, and sleep. The strategy demonstrated in this video is not evidence-based (Irina says its magic!), and is not a lasting solution - but it may help temporarily soothe babies. The most important thing you can do if your baby has a pattern of distressed behaviour is to have your health professional assess you and your baby and support you in offering Neuroprotective Developmental Care, as detailed in the Possums five domain approach. This approach is also available for parents in The discontented little baby book: all you need to know about feeds, sleep and crying, by Dr Pamela Douglas.
