Calming an Upset Baby at Mealtimes with Aliza Pressman, PhD

Baby-Led Weaning Made Easy

#234: Why is my baby so upset during mealtimes? How can I make feeding less stressful? An upset baby often results in a stressed-out parent, especially during mealtimes. Inadvertently our emotions can also trigger an upset baby but it is necessary for parents to co-regulate with their babies to allow them to develop their ability to cope and deal with their own emotions.  In this episode, I am interviewing professor and developmental psychologist Dr. Aliza Pressman who will be talking about anxiety during mealtimes and how parents can help support their babies by modeling a sense of emotional balance in order to teach their babies how to self-regulate.

Raising Good Humans: Aliza Pressman on taking on a role and getting the tools to embody it

Roads Taken

Guest Aliza Pressman went to college wanting to develop a side of herself beyond her natural artistic side. Although she did have a range of experiences while there, she ended up combining her interests in art history, English literature, and drama and exploring the human condition throughout it all. Not wanting the experience to end with graduation, she and some friends started a theater company in New York. After a few years, when she saw that other people had deeper drive and talent than she was mustering, she found other ways to make connection, namely working with kids in theater arts. But when someone mentioned a psychology program to her, things changed.She eventually found another route to answering the question of what makes us who we are: Developmental psychology. Initially drawn to teens and adolescence, she made a turn to infants and ultimately realized that so much of the environment of a child’s development has to do with parenting. She then made it her mission to translate the academic research on parenting and human development to the people who need it the most: Parents.In this episode, find out from Aliza how taking on a role and having the tools to embody it can be two different things…on today’s Roads Taken with Leslie Jennings Rowley. About This Episode's GuestAliza Pressman, known nationally as Dr. Aliza, is a developmental psychologist with decades’ experience working with families. She received a masters in Risk, Resilience and Prevention from the Department of Human Development at Teacher’s College and her PhD in developmental psychology from Columbia and is an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Division of Behavioral Health Department of Pediatrics at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital.
