Upcoming Events

Infant Sleep and Settling with Emotional Health in Mind (0-12 months) (Workshop/Forum)

Is your little one struggling to sleep? Are you feeling frustrated and exhausted? Are you worried about sleep training and which method to use? Are you worried about the impact of any sleep training on your little one's emotional development? When a baby doesn’t sleep well, the whole household suffers. Establishing good sleep habits early can stop sleep problems before they start.

In this once-off 1.5 hour event (including Question & Answer), Louise Shalders discusses baby sleep patterns, sleep cycles, down regulating, tired cues, age-appropriate sleep requirements, swaddling, routines (… or not!) and settling techniques that will set your baby on their way to a healthy approach to sleep.

She will also demonstrate these techniques.

The same event will run on a Tuesday evening and a Saturday morning for you to choose the most suitable.

Date/Time 1:  Tuesday 24th July 7:00pm - 8:30pm (Cancelled)

Date/Time 2:  Saturday 28th July 9:30am - 11:00am
