Infant sleep | The Possums Clinic

Infant sleep

Does your baby have sleep problems? Are you exhausted and sleep-deprived? Do you worry that your baby is not self-settling?

There is a great deal that can be done to make the nights more manageable and the days more enjoyable – without leaving your baby to cry.

Other parent-baby sleep programs talk about the importance of secure attachment and responsive care, but teach strategies that are not consistent with what the latest research has to say about secure attachment and responsive care! These popular programs promote delayed responses to your baby's cues (such as grizzling or crying), or even ask you to completely ignore powerful biological cues (such as baby falling asleep with feeds). High level evidence shows that these popular strategies actually don't help most families in the first year of life.

Our internationally-recognised program draws on the latest research in neuroscience, sleep science, and infant attachment to bring you proven strategies for less disrupted sleep, at the same time as you support your baby’s optimal development.

You will be surprised at just how easy and manageable sleep can be!

In the Clinic

Our health professionals specialising in Infant sleep
Our programs and workshops about Infant sleep

Sonja and Renee run two hour group sessions for mothers and babies every Friday - and there is no out-of-pocket expense if you and baby are registered with Medicare.

There's a lot that can be done to help make life with your newborn as enjoyable as possible, to get breastfeeding on track, and to prevent unsettled infant behaviour - having a plan before birth is the key! Put together a practical plan of action in our two hour workshops with our Possums RN/Midwife-Lactation consultants.
