    Default Child care student needs help! Needs to do a baby study of a child under 1 year old.

    Hi there,
    I am studying my Certificate III in Childrens Services and part of my study includes a baby study of a child preferably under 1 year old.

    I don't know anyone that is having a baby or has a baby and I feel it's intrusive asking a parent I barely know if I can do a baby study on their child at the child care centre that I am currently doing my placement at.

    The kind of info I would need is this sort of thing:
    information on their child's immunisations, the child's sleep environment, sleep rituals, safe sleeping, breast feeding, food, equipment/toys at home, the child's interactions, child care information (if any).

    This is supossed to be done over a period of time, so the same questions eg: sleeping patterns, eating patterns, comfort items etc. Will be asked every week/couple of weeks.

    If you are willing to help and are happy to answer my questions over a period of time, please let me know.

    It would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    If you can't find somebody, the qualified supervising you should be able to recommend a family who they think would be suitable.
    You can have him/her talk to the family beforehand to check they're ok with it before you speak to them.
    You'd be surprised how accommodating people will be when it's for somebody who's learning. Most families are often flattered you've chosen their child and are happy to tell you all about them
