Am I creating a bad habit?May 22, 2023
Follow your little one’s lead!
Unfortunately, outdated parenting advice has led many families to believe that their baby must ‘get into’ a strict feeding and sleeping routine from a very early age.
While some babies may require fewer feeds and are happily pat to sleep, on the whole this is a very unrealistic expectation.
The best thing parents can do is to follow their little one’s lead and respond appropriately.
Research by the Australian Association for Infant and Mental Health shows that this will not create a bad or lasting ‘habit’ but will actually positively contribute to their sense of security.
As always, you've got this mama, and I've got you.
