Sleep - Holistic sleep training and support for babies, children and their families. Sometimes one to one support is unaffordable. We offer useful ideas and techniques to help you make adaptions for your family to improve sleep.
Feeding and weaning - Human milk is the first port of call for human babies, but sometimes the education and support is lacking in our hometowns that we end up with a stressful period of time with conflicting advice between professionals, friends and family. The aim of our feeding session is to prepare you for breastfeeding equip you with the fascinating science and sense around the topic of feeding you baby at the breast, or with breastmilk via a bottle and many other techniques. The decision of whether to breast or formula feed your baby when the time comes, is entirely up to you. We feel that families who empowered themselves with the evidence-based information on infant feeding, are then able to make informed choices about how they feed their babies with absolutely no guilt whatsoever. This workshop is for families who want to breastfeed their babies, or for those who are interested in learning about feeding infants as well as those that are exploring alternative methods of feeding – so yes! we even have special classes for school-aged children to learn more about this fascinating process which will equip them with some serious terminology to throw around in their Biology and PHSE lessons at school.
Toilet Training - There is so much that is misunderstood when it comes to potty and toilet training. Having studied the physiological side and gaining an understanding the science and emotion behind it we have collated a format to support you through what many parents may find a stressful period in you child's development.
Babywearing - Carrying your baby is not only an invaluable aid it also facilitates parent/carer and child bonding. Attachment parenting build confidence and strengthens the bond between the two whilst being a great way of transporting in a comfortable and beautiful way.
With so much to choose from it can be hard deciding what is right for you and your chid. We can help you explore your choices.
Like most things, ensuring this is done safely is of paramount importance. If you would like some more information and support please get in touch.
