GOOD NIGHT, SLEEP TIGHT
Is your littlie’s night-time antics keeping you wide awake with worry? It’s perfectly normal to feel anxious if he is constantly waking up or not falling asleep. Nicole Johnson, leading baby sleep expert, founder of www.babysleepsite.com and author of new book Baby S.T.E.P.S. to Better Sleep will help coach you and your baby to sleep success. Nicole offers a wide variety of sleep coaching methods, allowing you to choose the strategies that work best for you. Compared to sleep training, sleep coaching is a more gentle and gradual approach. NICOLE’S TOP TIPS 1 Your baby is unique. Just because he may not be sleeping like your friend’s baby or even your older child doesn’t mean that he has a problem. 2 What works for one baby may not be the right method for your child and vice versa. This is why a customisable sleep coaching plan makes such a difference. 3 Introduce a sleep routine, including giving your child clues that it’s time for bed and setting expectations. This should happen at about the same time each day. 4 Being overtired is the number one reason for waking at night, so when someone says to keep your baby awake during the day so that he will sleep better at night, do the opposite.
