It’s probably the issue most discussed by new parents. Is your baby sleeping enough? Is he sleeping too much? Are YOU getting enough? How are you going to get her to sleep through? And how will you cope when you go back to work? Whoever coined the phrase ‘sleeping like a baby’ surely can’t have had children!
At SnoozeShade, mums are always telling us that they’ve tried lots of different sleep plans but it took them a while to hit on the right one (I personally used a combination). To help you find what works for you easily, we’ve put together this quick and simple guide to baby sleep experts and how their methods work so you can find the one (or two or three) that will best suit you and your baby.
Like most aspects of parenting, there’s no right or wrong answer as to how to crack the problem of sleep. The internet and book shops are full of people propounding their particular theories and, as a new parent, it can feel like a minefield. There’s a huge range of sleep plans and sleep training options you can follow, from the quick and no-nonsense, such as controlled crying, to the very gentlest of sleep methods that involve staying with your baby until she drifts off to sleep. No one plan is ‘better’ than another but some will work better for certain baby personalities and types of parent than others.
Once you’ve identified what you think might work best for you, we’ve made it easy for you to buy the book, visit the website and put the plan into action. We hope you find the guide useful. Here’s to welcoming back the Sandman! Z Z Z Z Z z z z z z z z z z z z
