Whoever made up the expression “sleeping like a baby“ never had a baby.
Or else they had a really drowsy baby that’s not like all the other regular babies who are determined to drive new parents slowly insane with their sleep habits.
Getting a baby to sleep can be – let’s just say – challenging, to put it mildly. This page covers a variety of baby sleep issues common to many parents.
So, how can we help our baby sleep better?
Here you can find information from Susie Parker, Child Sleep Guru from Sleep, Baby, Love child sleep consulting services. Susie has been so helpful to me personally, as well as to many of my friends. If you’re struggling with getting rest as a family, this is a great resource.

Tips on how to get through this challenging sleep phase – the 4 month sleep regression – for you and your baby.
It’s hard enough for a working mom to leave her child all day but for this momma to come back from work to an over-tired child who won’t nap well at daycare – well that really SUCKS! But what if naps at daycare could improve?
Just when your baby got their groove on in the sleep department, here it goes and changes again! Those nap transitions will keep you on your toes and you will see changes in sleep consistent with your baby’s growth, development and age.
We have all heard it before – never wake a sleeping baby! But is that good advice? An expert weighs in.
At 7 months old our baby was still waking up regularly at night, and we were exhausted. Sleep training was quick and effective – within a few days the entire family was resting! It was a miracle. Ok not really a miracle but certainly a game changer. Maybe sleep doesn’t have to be quite so hard after all.
