[ARTICLE] “Infant Sleep Myth Put To Bed At Last”- Courier Mail November 17th 2018

THE “gold standard” target that a baby should sleep through the night before the age of one has been smashed by experts.

The researchers examined whether infants who didn’t sleep for six or eight consecutive hours were more likely to have problems with physical skills, such as movement and dexterity, or mental development. They found no correlation.

The researchers also found no link between infants waking at night and mothers’ post-natal mood.

Queensland midwife and baby sleep consultant Amanda Bude said understanding the normal sleep needs and variations for babies after six months was important for reassuring parents.

[ARTICLE] “Can you be addicted to having babies?” Essential Baby 20th June 2018

Naturally, that begs the question: Can you be addicted to having children?

Amanda Bude, midwife at Groovy Babies, certainly thinks you can feel that way about giving birth.

“With positive birth experiences I’ve had many families say they could give birth over and over again – myself included.”

[ARTICLE] “Ask a GP: After birth: What Your First Period is Like” Body and Soul 11th April 2018

Among all these changes, you may wonder what happens to your periods after giving birth. Do they differ too?

Firstly, it can take ages for your first period to come back after giving birth.

In fact, if you’re breastfeeding exclusively, it could take six months or more before your period comes back, says midwife Amanda Bude from Groovy Babies. If you’re breastfeeding exclusively and drop down to two or three feeds every 24 hours, she says your periods may start again.

[ARTICLE] “Should we start calling C-sections ‘belly births'”- Essential Baby, March 6th 2018

So, can a simple change in name really empower women? And should we start referring to C-sections in this way?

Midwife Amanda Bude from Groovy Babies thinks this is a great idea.

“Obviously positive language has a massive impact on reducing or removing fear and anxiety towards any birth. That in itself empowers any mum-to- be.”

She says many mothers feel that having a C-section is “robbing” them of having had a vaginal birth. “But I believe if a mum has a positive birth experience, supportive care provider, and educated birth preparation, then they are less likely to feel shame and disappointment about how their baby arrived.”

And, she says, a simple change in name can help aid that positive birth experience.

[ARTICLE] “Parents Warned To Ignore Old Fashioned Advice”- The Courier Mail, February 9th 2018

Evidence-based research over the generations has found that old-fashioned practices, such as babies sleeping on their tummies, cots filled with quilts and pillows and even feeding a baby boiled water, can be risky.

Accredited baby sleep consultant Amanda Bude told The Courier-Mail that parents were often worried when their tots slept at their grandparents’ house in case modern recommendations were not adhered to.

[ARTICLE] Baby Sleep Consultants- The Courier Mail, November 12th 2017

AUSTRALIAN taxpayers are subsidising parents who can’t get their children to sleep by over $5 million per year.

A surge in sleep-deprived parents seeking professional baby sleep experts has meant a doubling in Medicare rebates for the services in the last 10 years.

Up to 40 per cent of babies and children struggle with sleep, which means that in Queensland each year 140,000 sets of parents are living with exhaustion.

 

But not all sleep experts are the same. Baby sleep trainers are not the same as qualified sleep specialists.

Ms Bude is adamant that there is no place for closing a door and letting the child cry it out.

“Baby sleep trainers may try and ‘fix’ a child with a one size fits all approach like controlled crying and responsive settling. There is a perception that the child is ‘broken’.

“A sleep specialist will assess the environmental, physical, emotional, social, developmental, psychological and medical areas of the family to see what might be underlying reasons for sleep and circadian rhythm disturbances,” said Ms Bude, who is also a midwife.
