Meeting Emotional Needs, Taking a Gentle Approach

In this case we were out and about, at a friends place. I put her down as I normally would for a sleep and went to leave the room, she started to cry.

I walked back in, I held her close, I comforted her. I put her back down and sat next to her until she went to sleep.

Is this going to ‘spoil’ her ability to self settle? NO! I’m her secure and safe base. I’m there when she needs me.

I won’t leave my baby to cry knowing that she needs my emotional support, if you book a consultation with me- I’ll never ask you to leave your baby to cry either ❤️
