Cindy Davenport is a child and family health nurse, midwife and lactation consultant, and has worked in the early parenting field since 1998. She has a keen interest in the health and wellbeing of families and offers a sensible, response-based approach to help babies and children with sleep and associated early parenting problems. Cindy is based in Melbourne, Australia.
In this interview, Cindy discusses the fundamental and important role that educators play with children’s safe, secure sleep and how can we help infants and young children’s mental health and attachment as well as sleep. She addresses some of the changes that educators may be seeing as a result of the pandemic and how these may affect parents and sleep.
Cindy addresses the classic question from parents and carers “I don’t want my baby to sleep longer than…” as well as questions about transitions and sleep. She also shares her expertise about sleep cycles and how educators can support these for the benefit of children.
