Responsive Parenting. What Does It Really Look Like In Action?

Responsive parenting and responsive settling are the new catch phrases and buzz words that are on every parent’s lips. Does anybody really know what this parenting approach actually entails. How is this parenting approach any different to gentle parenting or attachment parenting?


Birth Plan: Yes or No?

The journey to parenthood is a remarkable and transformative experience, and one of the most crucial milestones along this path is the birth of your child. In recent years, the concept of a "birth plan" has gained significant attention. But the question that often lingers in expectant parents' minds is: should you have a birth plan or not? Let's delve into this matter to help you make an informed decision.

SAMPLE BIRTH PLAN

A birth plan is a helpful tool to communicate your preferences and desires for your labor and delivery experience. While each birth plan will differ depending on personal preferences and circumstances, here is a sample birth plan for a normal delivery to give you an idea of what to include:

1. Labor environment: I prefer a calm and quiet environment with dimmed lights and soothing music to promote relaxation during labor.

2. Pain management: I would like to try natural pain management techniques such as breathing exercises, movement, and water therapy. If necessary, I am open to discussing pain medication options with my healthcare provider.

3. Support person: I would like my partner, [partner's name], to be present with me throughout the entire labor and delivery process for emotional support.

4. Positioning and movement: I would like to be able to move and change positions freely during labor, including walking, using a birthing ball, and utilizing different laboring positions.

5. Monitoring: I prefer intermittent fetal monitoring to allow for freedom of movement unless medically necessary.

6. Pushing and delivery: I would like to follow my body's natural urge to push and be in an upright or squatting position if possible.

7. Immediate postpartum: I would like to have skin-to-skin contact and breastfeed as soon as possible.

MAXI COSI CAR SEAT & PRAM.

 

The remarkable feature of this car seat and pram is its seamless transition between car and pram modes.

BABY BASSINET-ROCKING CRADLE/

CO SLEEPER

I absolutely LOVE this bassinet. WATCH THIS! You can push it on wheels to soothe your baby in their bed, but if that isn't working you can transition it to a rocker to try and soothe your baby with a rocking motion. As your baby gets older and you are weaning them from the motion you can use it as a co sleeper. Amazing. Click on the link to purchase. https://amzn.to/3SegbM5
