Hello mums & dads,
My name is Victoria Rose and I am the founder of Allaboutbabies. We offer antenatal and postnatal support to parents. I am also an accredited Sleep Consultant and I am going to share with you some of my top tips to a better nights sleep. I really hope you find all my tips useful.
I often tell my antenatal clients, “give yourself 6-10 weeks off!”. Don’t worry in the first few months about creating “bad sleep habits”. Babies want to be cuddled and fed to sleep and no mum has ever spoilt a baby with too many cuddles. However, when the time is right for you, it can be very positive for your little one to develop a routine.
Babies develop their circadian rhythms (body clocks) and more mature sleeping patterns from around three months, and parents often have more success establishing structure from this point on. Once you are ready to work on routine, rather than reach for the books, to pre-prescribed routines, my advice to all parents is to discover, and work with, your baby’s own natural sleep patterns. Develop a bespoke routine that’s right for them.

“My baby will only nap for 30mins” is one of the most common statements I hear from parents.
In my Daytime Nap Blog, I answer questions such as “What type of nap schedule should my little one be on”, “How can I get my child to do a 2 hour lunchtime nap?”, and more.

Sleep, along with many other aspects of your toddlers behaviour can regress when a new baby comes on the scene. We run a Second-Timers Antenatal Course and I have written up some of my top tips on supporting your toddler when they become a new sibling here.
