Lack of practical or emotional support is one of the risk factors known to place women at greater risk of developing depression and anxiety after having a baby. Having a plan in place to ensure you are adequately supported in the postnatal period is important. Infant Care Support can be part of your support plan. Infant Care Support can provide you with personal, professional, understanding support to help you feel confident and cared for in the postnatal period.

Does you baby cry when you wrap or swaddle him?
WOULD YOU BELIEVE ITS NOT BECAUSE HE DOESN’T LIKE IT BUT BECAUSE HE’S RESPONDING TO YOU TELLING HIM HE’S SAFE AND IT’S TIME TO RELAX AND GO TO SLEEP?
Babies will start to respond to your messages from the time they are born. They start building memory and rely on predictable patterns to help them organise their feelings and responses. So it’s no surprise that when you see they are tired and you give them a safe secure warm wrap up that they feel safe to cry and will release their feelings and stress with calming tears.
So next time you see this and are worried he doesn’t like it…feel good…your baby is starting to understand your actions and respond !!
