The newborn behavioural observations (NBO) training course is designed for practitioners working with families and newborns wanting to learn about baby behaviour, and reading baby signals and cues.

Research has shown this promotes positive interactions, increases parental confidence in caregiving, and practitioners’ knowledge and confidence.

Topics include: 

  • Understand how new born babies communicate 
  • Know about different behavioural states of infants
  • Understand infants self-regulatory behaviours 
  • Know the signs of over-stimulation of boredom 
  • Supporting parents in an infant’s first few weeks 

This is a joint meeting with The Brazelton Centre.
