Sleep, or rather lack of it!

To most new parents sleep is priceless! And to be fair, it is expected that sleep will not be something you will be getting too much of for the next little while. However when baby becomes a toddler and the months drag on with no end in sight, it is normal for parents to look for a solution.

“People who say they sleep like a baby usually don’t have one.”

There are a few physical reasons why a child’s sleep pattern can be disrupted. It is best to check that all is well physically before you embark on a sleep training journey.

Physical issues that can affect sleep include Recurrent Ear Infections and Glue Ear in Children, Congestion or Digestive issues like Cow’s Milk Protein Allergy or Infant Reflux

There is always a solution and every child will learn to sleep through the night. It may require patience, persistence and perhaps a little Cranial Osteopathy but you will get there in the end!
