One of the biggest concerns among parents is helping their child to nap & sleep the night. Sleep issues aren’t just for babies, they can continue into toddlerhood & beyond. Many children stop sleeping at one stage or another & as a result, mom & dad don’t sleep either. I’ve recently been introduced to a great sleep resource for parents called The Baby Sleep Site.
Baby Sleep Site Products & Services
The Baby Sleep Site offers a range of products & services to tailor a sleep schedule for your child. They have Free Resources which includes articles, guides & sample sleep schedules. There is also the Do it Yourself* option where you may purchase books & access to the Members Area.
The Members Area* has an amazing selection of resources including access to all of their articles, e-books, custom schedule generator & the members chat room where you can get help from a sleep consultant. The Members Area is recommended if you are interested in any of the following:
Sleep options for parents of multiples
Newborn sleep & feeding
Maintaining sleep schedules across multiple caregivers
Transitioning sleep schedules & sleep schedules during travel
For a one on one, specialized plan for your child, the Baby Sleep Site offers consulting services. You communicate with a sleep expert either via email or over the phone. They make a program specifically for your child based on your needs & beliefs. They work with both no-cry & cry it out solutions.
The 5-Step System to Better Toddler Sleep
The site isn’t’ just for babies, there are books, articles, schedules & expert consultations for toddlers as well. Because my baby is 30 months old, I had a good look at the toddler resources & found them extremely useful.
The Tired Parent’s 5-Step System to better Toddler Sleep gives schedules for toddlers to follow including eating, napping, going to bed & waking up times. It also has suggestions on dealing with night waking due to nightmares & also no-mares as they call it where the child doesn’t have a bad dream. There’s advice on helping your toddler to sleep alone. They give a range of techniques to help your toddler fall asleep & stay asleep. Some involve crying & others have minimal to no crying or using teethers. I love that this site realizes that all kids & families are different & require different approaches.
On a Personal Note
My second & third babies didn’t’ sleep the night until they turned 2-years-old & stopped napping. That meant years of sleepless nights for myself & my husband. I googled sleep solutions, bought books & talked to friends. Despite all of that, nothing consistently worked.
Our son woke several times a night & would not go back to sleep. Our daughter didn’t wake as much as our son, but when she woke she wouldn’t settle again & I often ended up bringing her into bed with us. If I had known about The Baby Sleep Site I definitely would have utilized their resources. A good nights sleep is so important for parents & kiddies alike!
