Transition from Birth to Parenting

I often hear from women (and their partner’s) about the joys and sorrows that fluctuate with the challenges, frustrations, and difficulties experienced with their transition to becoming parents.  There are many blogs, articles, and research that can be found about the diversity of these experiences.  It can be comforting to hear other’s stories also, to know that ‘I’m not alone’, to find information that supports how you are feeling.

Baby and toddler sleep help that isn’t sleep training

Are you looking for help with your baby or toddler’s sleep that is not sleep training? As we move through this year of drought, bush-fire, and COVID 19 on into the challenge of the 2020s, increasing numbers of parents are making a decision to avoid conventional sleep training methods.

This could be because they have tried sleep training and have decided it doesn’t work for their family. Experimenting is a great parenting strength and it makes sense that many of us experiment with what still remains the dominant approach to infant sleep.

Or it could be that parents have decided that sleep training doesn’t align with their parenting values. These values are unique to each parent and each family – and it is important to never judge another family’s decisions, since everyone wants to do the right thing by their child.

The Beginning of Us…

The Transition into and through parenting comes with many changes. Changes of self, identity, roles and ……relationships. For some, the relationship that we once knew blossoms through a beautiful stage of growth as we bond over the shared love of the little human that together we have created. For others, our relationship is trialled and tested, facing the most challenging stage yet, and maybe ever, for most, it’s both!
