A Baby's Cues - Learn to Read and Respond Knowingly
This extensive workshop provides an opportunity for parents to deepen their understanding of what a baby is truly communicating and how to respond knowingly with them to foster calm and nurture developmental sleep. It is an ideal workshop for all parents that have a newborn to six months old, settled or unsettled.
This workshop will:
- Introduce you to a baby’s innate Six-Wind-Cues and how to respond to these to release trapped wind
- Enable parents to distinguish between hunger, wind or Digestive Overload behaviours
- Teach responsive care for distressed behaviour like arching backwards and pedalling legs
- Explore calming techniques that nurture responsive care for baby while creating a balanced equilibrium for the parents
- Learn a baby’s real tired cues
- Identify strategies for settling and re-settling babies

'A fabulous course! I left feeling more confident to care for my baby and particularly like being able to ask Philippa specific questions about him. Thank you Philippa for sharing your work.'
'Who knew babies had so much communication going on. Philippa's knowledge is extensive and while I felt a little overwhelmed with how many cues I was missing with my son, I now know him so much more.'
'Philippa's research makes so much sense. I think every Mum should attend this course. I'm looking forward to reading the BabyCues book now.'

Newborns are welcome but there is limited space so if you have someone you trust to have bubs, and that is doable, then this may be best.
