This is a simple but essential message which should be shared with everyone who is caring for a child

This is a simple but essential message which should be shared with everyone who is caring for a child. Parents should be supported to understand that it’s ok to take a break from a baby’s crying as long as your baby is safe and you return to check on your baby after a few minutes.  We are pleased to note that since our official launch to multi-agency professionals in September 2018 other areas such as Gloucestershire have followed us and we hope the initiative will be rolled out for the NHS as a whole.

This is an extremely important message …

This is an extremely important message and I have found it really useful to have this conversation with families, especially during the antenatal period and on the postnatal ward, where we can give the message to mothers and engage their partners.  I also feel that we are making a difference in supporting families when they go home; reassuring them that babies do cry and that this is normal.
