Sleep Wrecked Kids

Helping Parents Raise Happy, Healthy Kids, One Sleep at a Time

Sleep Wrecked Kids

Kids often suffer unknowingly from the consequences of sleep problems because their issue is frequently missed or dismissed, by both health professionals and parents. Sleep disorders are a major public health issue that can kick start a lifetime pattern of health, behaviour, and learning problems. From ages 4-10, at least 25 percent of kids have sleep problems. Sleep Wrecked Kids guides parents towards good sleep as the norm, allowing themselves and their children to grow and thrive. Speech pathologist and myofunctional practitioner Sharon Moore teaches parents why ‘bad sleep’ is connected to a myriad of health problems, what ‘good sleep’ actually means, how to identify red flags for sleep problems, how to improve sleep quality by improving airway health, and so much more! Parents are empowered to not only get more sleep themselves, but also to help their children get the sleep they need—every night.

Sleep

The easy way for peaceful nights

Sleep

Many believe it is a matter of luck as to whether you are blessed with a baby who sleeps well or are landed with one who doesn't. It isn't. Beatrice Hollyer and Lucy Smith provide clear, sensible and effective advice on how to achieve peaceful, problem-free nights in Sleep - from the first days of infancy throughout childhood. Taking a cue from the baby, and working with their natural instinct, this book puts parents in charge. Avoiding conflict over sleep, this approach builds trust, communication and confidence in your relationship with your baby. Instead of a one-size fits-all approach, Hollyer and Smith offer guidelines that can be adapted for each particular parent and baby. By understanding her needs, reading and responding to her signals and following her lead, you can strongly reinforce your baby's natural tendency to adapt to sleeping all night. Although focusing on establishing good sleep habits from the start of life, the principles put forward in this book can also be used to solve a sleep problem in a child of any age, usually in less than a week.

The Baby And Toddler Sleep Programme

Did you know that it is perfectly normal for a baby from 0-6 months to wake up every 20 minutes - often to cry? Do you worry about upsetting your 2 year-old, who refuses to go to sleep without another story? Did you know that every child will experience night-time fears at a different age?

Regular sleep patterns - for children and adults - are an essential key to managing the rest of our lives. The earlier in their lives that regular sleep can be established, the easier children will find it for the rest of their lives. Dr John Pearce demystifies the rituals of sleeping. He explains to hassled parents how natural sleep rhythms alter over time, what sort of behaviour is natural at various ages, when to use strict discipline, at what age to negotiate instead of dictate, when to turn a deaf ear to playing up and when to take note of the clear signs of illness, depressions, fear or anxiety. Full of clear guidlines for positive and constructive action - this book is a godsend for parents of children - from 0-4 and beyond.
