Sleep. One of the things parents are warned that there will be a lack of once your little one is born. A study shows that new parents face up to six years of sleep deprivation, with the first three months being the worst. Preparing for this as best you can be important.  

In this blog we want to reassure you that broken sleep doesn’t mean that you are broken and need fixing, it’s just part of the territory especially in the first few months. We hope that by dispelling a few myths we can help you to re-evaluate your expectations for yourself, and your little one.  

You will most likely have one ear constantly open for your little one, waiting to attend to their soft cries and trying to resist checking they’re still breathing every few minutes!  

And sometimes, no matter what you try, your baby just won’t go down to sleep in their cot.  

Don’t worry, we’ve done the research for you and put together a list of websites, highlighting tips, tricks and useful information about sleep for your baby.   

Check out these suggestions from Parenting Science.   

  1. Create a regular bedtime routine for your baby as, in theory, it should help to wind you and your baby down ready for sleep. 

  1. Learn baby massage and incorporate this into your baby’s bedtime routine. Baby massage has many benefits include relief from colic, constipation and helps you to attune to your baby’s cues.

  1. Swaddling your baby can help to restrict their, yet to be coordinated movements, meaning they are less likely to thrash around and wake themselves up during their sleep. Experts do recommend you stop swaddling your baby when they are able to turn themselves. To find out more what Parenting Science had to say, read their article here.
