Welcome to Babysomnia
If you’re reading this, you’re probably among the many parents – the vast majority, actually – who encounter sleeping problems with their baby at some point or another. Common problems include having to feed or hold your baby for them to fall asleep, short catnaps, frequently waking through the night and toddlers who refuse to stay in bed. Many parents find that solving these sleep dilemmas on their own can be overwhelming.
It's the perfect storm, really: exhaustion, conflicting advice (so much conflicting advice!) and the general upheaval of a tiny new member of the family. It's no wonder that so many parents – first-timers especially – feel confused, stressed and unsure.
It's really common for parents to feel overwhelmed with the challenges of a new baby.
Sleep is essential for your baby, but self-care for parents is also vital so you can parent calmly and confidently. If your child's sleep is causing you any concern, I might be able to help.
