At Baby to Bed, we understand that not every baby is the same and that well publicised strict routines and controlled crying techniques may not work for your child. Our techniques are adapted and tailored to each individual baby, personalising the service, working with you, to help your child sleep – relieving the pressures of being a new parent.
Baby to Bed techniques are specifically designed around fulfilling Maslow’s Hierarchy Of Needs. We concentrate on four fundamental requirements: Physical, Intellectual, Emotional & Social. When combined together, these four components will help create a healthy, balanced baby that will be well rested and happy.
The 4 requirements for a rested baby
Good hygiene, exercise, a balanced diet and a warm, safe environment are all essential for your baby’s wellbeing.
Physical development begins with the head then moves on to other parts of the body.
From primitive reflex movements in the first few months to a baby’s first steps, your child’s physical development is extremely rapid within their first year of life.
We concentrate on the various aspects of how your baby learns and develops their sense of awareness.
The security given to your baby will provide them with the confidence to explore their environment.
Your baby needs to be mentally stimulated and challenged through a variety of different mediums such as toys and picture books.
In order to solidify foundations of trust, reliable strong role models are essential.
Your baby’s emotional development will expand vastly over their first few months – from quiet observation to active participation, everything in their world will suddenly become of interest.
Building on your newly gained parent-to-child emotional connections and feelings of trust, your baby’s emotional range will grow and span from expressions of joy to (unfortunately, but inevitable) temper tantrums.
The boundaries of ‘Social’ and ‘Emotional’ requirements are closely aligned.
As your baby ages and their waking hours increase, their social and emotional range rapidly develops.
Person to person interaction, exploring of their environment and a heightened level of interest in their surroundings, including reaction to ambient sounds are all fundamental principles of social development.
