    Default Brisbane Nurture Center

    Anyone been there? I'm not comfortable with the public systems program, as from what I can see they promote controlled crying.

    Don't know anything about this but I'm curious to find out.

    However, I stayed at the Ellen Barron Centre for a week with my ds...they did not promote controlled crying. I'm not sure where you got that information from.

    Both places use responsive settling techniques, so not cc.

    Due to my DD's age, we more or less just did cio cos responding took 45 mins whereas cio took 10 mins. Responding to her protest cries just interrupted the process then she woukd start from hysterical and have to wind down again. You have to understand responsive settling to understand the process IMO.

    Nurture Centre only take bubs up to 18 months.

    DD and I stayed at Ellen baron and it was awesome. I cannot recommend them enough. Their staff were just the best and we got so much support, more than I ever expected.

    How old is your bub, OP?

    We practice a more attachment parenting style, I personally do not believe a child ( that's too young to communicate with) should cry at all in the getting to sleep process. Obviously in the middle of the night that's a different story as you have to wake up and get to them yourself, but I believe in hugs then.
    I went to a sleep and settling seminar run by chc, they showed us a video, I personally feel that the technique on offer is controlled crying, they just reworded it. Allowing a child to cry to get to sleep is a form of controlled crying sorry.

    She's 7 months so young enough for the center.

    I've had a few lengthy conversations with the nuture centre on the phone prior to booking in. They were excellent on this phone and said that they do responsive settling techniques. And also cater this for your child and their specific needs.
    I was booked in with my dd but after lots of talking with them they said they didn't think they could help (my dd has a genetic syndrome and one facet of it is sleep disorder). Since this poor sleeping isn't necessarily behavioural and more metabolic we didn't go.
    Though I honestly wouldn't have hesitated. They sounded really really great.

    Once they learn to sleep, they wake less often and hence cry a heck of a lot less. Just like a baby cries when they need to eat or need a nappy change they cry when they need to sleep. Did they advocate leaving the room or are you with them patting them or rubbing them to know you are there them when they learn to sleep?
