Now, app to guide parents how to get babies to sleep
Melbourne: Two leading Australian child health nurses have developed a world-first app that teaches parents the skills required to get a baby to sleep.
Rockabub co-creator Helen Stevens, who has been working with parents and babies for more than 20 years, said that a child’s midnight crying sessions tested even the most patient parents after birth. But when those fitful nights stretched on for months without reprieve, it could be torture.
The app Stevens and fellow nurse Cindy Davenport have produced, guides parents through the steps to settle a child, with different options at each point in case something doesn’t work, the Daily Telegraph reported.
But the app steers clear of controlled crying, where parents let their baby cry for a prescribed period before intervening, due to recent research suggesting it could affect a child’s emotional wellbeing.
Davenport said that the aim was to provide accurate, current information to help parents understand babies’ needs.
