Lockdown & Loneliness

Keep Baby In Mind

Another National Lockdown means that now more than ever we need to keep baby in mind and be curious about their experience of any risks experienced by their parents. Mental health difficulties can stir up big feelings. With big feelings can come risk to both parents and their babies. Risk can be greater when it is out of sight and without support.

basis – Baby sleep info source

This website presents research evidence about biologically normal sleep for human babies. We discuss how infant sleep may vary due to cultural behaviours and expectations such as what babies are fed, where they sleep, and how we interpret their needs. This information is for; a) parents who wish to make informed choices about infant sleep and night-time care b) health practitioners who wish to share evidence-based information with parents about infant sleep.

Cry-sis -Parent with crying and sleepless babies

In 1981 a small group of parents, who were experiencing problems with their crying and sleepless babies, set up a support group. They discovered how important support is and how reassuring it can be to talk to someone. Today that support group has become Cry-sis, the only UK charity offering help and support to parents with babies who cry excessively or have sleeping problems. From modest beginnings Cry-sis has become a well-respected national charity.
