In this podcast episode, ‘Understanding Your Social Butterfly’ I, Meg Faure, invite you to explore the world of sensory-seeking babies, often known as “social butterflies.” Join me as we dive into their behavior, gaining insights into understanding and nurturing their unique sensory needs.
Nurturing Milk and Sleep Habits in Sensory-Seeking Babies
Sensory-seeking babies are naturally curious, even during breastfeeding. They often show an interest in bottles and solid foods. I’ll emphasize the importance of milk for babies under six months and share tips for managing sleep, which can be challenging for these little explorers.
Balancing Stimulation and Preventing Overstimulation
While sensory seekers thrive on stimulation and social interaction, it’s essential to find the right balance. I’ll discuss recognizing signs of overstimulation and ensuring they have the downtime they need. Remember, their boundless curiosity is entirely normal.
Avoiding Labels and Seeking Support
I strongly advise against rushing to label children with disorders. Instead, consider consulting an occupational therapist specializing in sensory integration if needed. They can provide personalized guidance to support your child’s sensory needs.
