Little Miracles - Hot Tip!

Transitioning between developmental stages in the 1st Year

Developmental changes that your baby has in their first year of life are worth taking note of. During these times people often talk about ‘regressions’ rather than progressions!

I always like to focus on what age and stage your baby is at, what they are developmentally going through and how you are best to ‘tweak’ what you are doing daily and what expectations you have in order to stay in progress and help your baby transition to their next stage without too much disruption.

-Significant changes occur around 3wks/6wks/9wks/ 3mths/4mths/6mths/9mths

- It takes most babies 3-5 days to adapt to changes and they often need you to be one step ahead so you can guide them in the right direction.

- Their individual personalities need to be taken into consideration alongside the age they are at.

- It might be that you need to be ‘still’ and reduce commitments for a few days to help your baby through this change.
