When you’re expecting a new baby everyone tells you that you’re going to be tired, but are you really ever prepared for the sleepless nights? For the first part of our Baby Sleep Course we are focusing on newborn sleep.
Our Health Visitor Maggie Fisher is here to bring you her top tips for surviving the newborn sleep stage – from what to expect to different things you can do to make the sleep deprivation slightly less soul destroying. Hang in there! It gets easier, we promise!
Don’t forget you can chat to Maggie and other trained parent helpers in our Support Group
And take a look at our safe sleep fact sheet right here, where it will tell you everything you need to know about keeping your baby safe while they are asleep.
For everything you need to know about your newborn baby’s development, take a look at our week by week guide.
And for loads more advice on everything to do with getting that precious shut eye, check out our library of Baby Sleep videos.
Maggie lists some really useful top tips in the video, but it’s also important you know what sleepy signs to look out for (take a look at this fact sheet) and different methods for soothing a crying baby (take a look at this fact sheet)
We’ve created a fact sheet that will help you to know what to expect in terms of the amount of sleep your baby should be getting. Check it out right here.
