Message from Sue :

I’ve been talking about this new ‘study’ of ONLY 178 families on BBC Radio Hereford & Worcester & BBC Radio Kent

Huge research shows that babies ‘can NOT self soothe as their vastly underdeveloped brains require a safe calm mature nervous system to do this with and for them.

When they cry nature intends this to bring a caring adult to them as it’s a survival need. Leaving them creates huge stress in their systems.’

Babies need to feel safe, secure & lovingly attached to us so hug, cuddle, love & nurture your baby

One of the questions I answered was about a toddler clinging to Mum and not even letting her go to the loo which is a very common problem so here is the article I wrote to answer some of those concerns.

How many of us have left an inconsolable child in childcare or school and gone on our way with a sick heart, wondering if we’ve done the right thing?
