Tips For Getting the Sleep You Need

  • Share the night-time feedings with your partner so you’ll both be guaranteed at least five hours of solid sleep.
  • Some families find that bringing their baby to bed with them is the key to staving off fatigue.
  • Investing in a cradle that can rock like our Bungee Deluxe Baby Rocker Chair will make a vast improvement to your baby’s relaxation.
  • Midnight power-snacking for yourself. This may include peanut butter, milk or yoghurt.
  • Keep the same routine. It is a proven fact that children benefit from routine and stability.
  • Nap during the day-time. Although this is not always practical, any nap time is valuable. It is even better if you can nap while your baby naps.
Sleep is one of those topics that always arises when considering life as a new parent. Once you’ve got your baby to sleep, there’s also the matter of ensuring their safety. You can put your mind at ease by purchasing one of our many baby-proofing and safety products. For example, a Portable Bed Guard Rail or a Baby Bean Bag will ensure your child is secure and relaxed.

Sleep deprivation combined with the constant demands of caring for a baby can test your limits. Not only will it make you irritable, but lack of sleep will also make your child irritable. If you can recognise the signs of sleep deprivation, you will be better equipped to cope with it.
