Bring home a newborn baby and losing track of time and sleep is challenging enough. What if things are not going smoothly? Some babies show a very easy-going and mellow temperament right from the start. Others are more reactive and high-maintenance, showing increased sensitivity, higher levels of stress – generally needing and requiring a lot more attention.
Do you have any of the following concerns? A developmental consultation will provide a lot of helpful answers and early intervention techniques that can help if managing your newborn or young infant becomes particularly challenging.
- “My baby is colicky and cries all the time!”
- “I have a hard time settling him down, then he only sleeps for 20 minutes!”
- “We’re having trouble with feeding”
- “He doesn’t really like to be held”
- “My baby has reflux and spits up all the time”
- “She only turns her head to one side. I’m worried about her head shape”
- “My child doesn’t really cooh or seem to have any alert time for interaction”
- “Why won’t my baby look at me?”
- “She’s not rolling over yet”
- My pediatrician says he needs ‘tummy time’ but he cries whenever I put him on his stomach”
