How to Unlock the Secrets of Baby Behavior for Parents and Caregivers
Thursday, October 18, 2018
What is Secrets of Baby Behavior? SBB is a clinic intervention, developed by the University of California at Davis Human Lactation Center in partnership with the California WIC Program, to increase parents' knowledge of normal infant behavior, including sleep expectations and crying. SBB strategies help parents and caregivers respond appropriately to their infant's cues and crying and normalize their expectations for newborn sleep; thereby reducing the use of food as a behavior management approach. This leads to reductions in overfeeding, promotes longer breastfeeding duration, and decreases the early weight gain velocity linked to childhood obesity.
