Winks are cues
Infants will commonly open or close just one eye. This “wink” can have different, and significant, meanings. From a cautious peek to resourceful self calming, a wink can tell Dr Melissa a lot about how your baby responds to their new environment.
A wink of sleep
Newborn sleep patterns vary widely. The transition to sleeping at night can depend on how the environment fits with your baby’s natural tendencies. Unlike standard sleep training methods, the focus is on your individual baby’s internal clock and a realistic “best case” scenario when all factors are considered. When Dr Melissa helps you to understand your baby’s temperament, it can make the difference between an easy transition or sleep deprivation.
Quick as a wink soothing
Crying can be expected, but an infant that cries a lot warrants a closer look. You need to understand why your baby is crying and how she is best soothed. For babies who have a tendency to keep crying once they get started, Dr Melissa can show you how to avoid a meltdown before it starts.
Dr Melissa trained with Dr T Berry Brazelton, one of the world’s most well-known pediatricians and child development experts.
Dr Brazelton taught her how to observe and interpret infant behavior, and to provide expert guidance to new parents. His methods and mentorship are the inspiration for Wonder Winks.
