We receive a lot of enquiries about sleep. If you have any tips or experiences you can share please add to this discussion point.
Some tips we have been given to pass on to parents so far have included -
1. Making sure the bedroom is dark, quiet and cool - eg using heavy curtains
2. Ensuring there is a known bedroom routine, eg bath or story
3. Adhering to a sleep/wake schedule, eg similar waking times during the week and weekend
4. Avoiding stimulants, eg caffeine
Have you got others? Has anything particularly worked for you?
