Life with a child who does not rest

A sleepless child can impact on every aspect of your life. Whether you are an experienced parent or this is all new to you, it’s often hard to convey to those who have never suffered from it, just how exhausting it can be when your young one won’t go to bed.

In extreme cases, this can lead to stress, depression, exhaustion and put even the strongest relationships to the test. Tiredness and stress can lead to issues in your professional life, your social life and your sex life.
We’re not qualified child psychologists but what we do have is experience of two boys, who, for different reasons didn’t want to rest or go to bed. So, hopefully, other tired parents out there can benefit from what we’ve learned

Why won’t my baby sleep

There are a million sites out there offering sure-fire ways for getting your little one to snooze but all babies are different and what works for one child may not work for another.

We are not offering any quick fixes or guaranteed overnight success – we set up why wont my baby sleep to share with you what worked over a period of time and is working for us now. At the very least we hope our site will show you that you are not alone and hopefully give you some support and the confidence to try things your way.

Baby sleep training

It took considerable effort to train our little ones to go to bed as baby sleep training like all forms of coaching, needs to be structured and you need to stick to it. In this site you will find advice about building up a routine, creating an atmosphere that’s conducive to a good night’s sleep and teaching your child the visual and aural triggers that say “OK, now it’s time to wind down and go to bed”. We’ve even created some white noise for babies that helped us through one of the hardest periods with our second boy’s routine.

Why we started this baby sleep advice website

I suppose we started this website to share baby sleep tips that worked for us and hopefully you will benefit too – there’s a million sites our there who offer advice for your sleepless baby, some good and some not so good.
Writing this site has brought back a lot of memories and made us realise what a worthwhile challenge it is. We have stressed and struggled and hit the wall a few times, but at the heart of it all we knew we were having a hard time because we had given birth to two beautiful, headstrong, healthy little boys who were making there mark on our lives and the world.
It’s our baby’s curiosity, playfulness, strong headedness and dependance on us that can lead to many a night without sleep, pacing the bedroom – but ultimately these traits are the things we love and appreciate, especially after a good night’s rest.
