Happy Babies: Jan 21st, 28th, Feb 4th 2016


Most parents want their baby to be happy and it can be very helpful to understand how this all works.

When our babies are born, they are thrust into a world that is new, stimulating, and unlike anything that they have ever experienced before. As parents, it is our responsibility to help our children to navigate this exciting and frightening new world. To do this, we have to begin by understanding our babies' emotional needs. A challenge when unlike us, babies cannot speak.

Most of us are experts in recognising our babies' physical milestones, like learning to hold their head up independently, to talk and eventually to walk. Unfortunately, not many parents know how to recognise the crucial emotional milestones that babies will pass through in their early years.

Recognising these mile stones is crucial to meeting your babies needs and cultivating a HAPPY BABY.
