I WANT MY BABY TO SLEEP ALL NIGHT BUT I DON'T MIND IF THEY DON'T SLEEP DURING THE DAY

Even if your baby is a dream sleeper at night, they still need daytime naps until at least around the age of two and a half to three years. If your baby fights daytime sleeping or isn’t given the opportunity to have naps, they probably aren’t getting enough rest. Daytime sleep is just as important as night-time sleep is. Your little one needs to get their  naps during the day PLUS their long stretch of sleep overnight so they can feel well rested, content, and happy. Let’s face it, none of us feel our best when we haven’t had enough sleep.

If your little one has or is developing challenging sleep issues, you need to look at their day and their night. It is difficult to improve the night-time sleep without addressing their daytime naps and vice versa. In fact, a baby’s sleep at night can be severely disrupted if they don’t get enough sleep during the day, or if their afternoon nap is too close to bedtime.

NEED MORE SUPPORT?

Having a baby isn't easy and it's common to feel overwhelmed, vulnerable and in need of help and support.

You don't need to feel like you're in this alone. Whether it's more support with your baby's sleep, assistance with feeding or some extra help for you or your partner, we encourage you to reach out to family, your doctor or one of the many support organisations and services for new and expecting parents and carers.
