        ISIS is a collaboration between Durham University Parent-Infant Sleep Lab, La Leche League, NCT,

        This website is about normal infant sleep. We use 'normal' to mean 'what is biologically expected for humans'. 
        Our starting point is that sleep is a biological  need. We present information about what is biologically normal 
        for human babies. We also discuss how this may vary due to different cultural behaviours and expectations 
        such as what babies are fed, where they sleep, and how societies interpret their needs. 

        This information is for: 
         * Parents who wish to make informed choices about infant sleep and night-time care, 
         * Health Professionals who wish to share evidecne-based information with parents about infant sleep

  CAUTION - at times it is not Thrush, but other medical or mechanical issues:
    It's Thrush - or is it?
   If mother and baby are both receiving treatment for Thrush and report little relief in 3 – 4 days:
   • Conduct a re-assessment of breastfeeding: Positioning and latch, tongue tie, etc. AND
   • Refer back to Primary caregivers to rule out other causes (i.e. Raynaud’s, bacterial infections, etc.)

Tuberculosis:

    • "Breastfeeding should not be discouraged for women being treated with the first-line antituberculosis drugs because the concentrations of these drugs in breast milk are too small to produce toxicity in the nursing newborn. For the same reason, drugs in breast milk are not an effective treatment for TB disease or LTBI in a nursing infant. Breastfeeding women taking INH should also take pyridoxine (vitamin B6) supplementation." (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
    • (Newly-delivered mother may need temporary interruption when initiating medications) (New York State Department of Health)

        The Magical Hour: http://www.magicalhour.com/
            Based on the research of Anne Marie Widstrom's 9 stages after birth:  

  • Stage 1: The Birth Cry The first stage is the birth cry. This distinctive cry occurs immediately after birth as the baby’s lungs expand.
  • Stage 2: Relaxation The second stage is the relaxation stage. During the relaxation stage, the newborn exhibits no mouth movements and the hands are relaxed. This stage usually begins when the birth cry has stopped. The baby is skin to skin with the mother and covered with a warm, dry towel or blanket.
  • Stage 3: Awakening The third stage is the awakening stage. During this stage the newborn exhibits small thrusts of movement in the head and shoulders. This stage usually begins about 3 minutes after birth. The newborn in the awakening stage may exhibit head movements, open his eyes, show some mouth activity and might move his shoulders.
  • Stage 4: Activity The fourth stage is the activity stage. During this stage, the newborn begins to make increased mouthing and sucking movements as the rooting reflex becomes more obvious. This stage usually begins about 8 minutes after birth.
  • Stage 5: Rest At any point, the baby may rest. The baby may have periods of resting between periods of activity throughout the first hour or so after birth.
  • Stage 6: Crawling The sixth stage is the crawling stage. The baby approaches the breast during this stage with short periods of action that result in reaching the breast and nipple. This stage usually begins about 35 minutes after birth.
  • Stage 7: Familiarization The seventh stage is called familiarization. During this stage, the newborn becomes acquainted with the mother by licking the nipple and touching and massaging her breast. This stage usually begins around 45 minutes after birth and could last for 20 minutes or more.
  • Stage 8: Suckling The eighth stage is suckling. During this stage, the newborn takes the nipple, self attaches and suckles. This early experience of learning to breastfeed usually begins about an hour after birth. If the mother has had analgesia/anesthesia during labor, it may take more time with skin to skin for the baby to complete the stages and begin suckling.
  • Stage 9: Sleep  The final stage is sleep. The baby and sometimes the mother fall into a restful sleep. Babies usually fall asleep about 1½ to 2 hours after birth.
