There's no such thing as a secret when you're a parent! We are a huge community of baby sleep consultants and here are just a few of my go-to tips and tricks!

Top Tips


Darkness prompts the pineal gland to start producing melatonin (sleepy hormone) while stops the production. As a result melatonin helps regulate circadian rhythm and synchronise sleep - wake cycles with night and day.

Therefore, putting your baby in a very dark room for naps and bedtime is extremely comfortable and beneficial.

Signs of sleep deprivation

  • Irritability.

  • Hyperactive behaviour.

  • Falling asleep during the day.

  • Having difficulty paying attention.

  • Being quick to fall asleep.

Quiet time

Quiet time can be really beneficial to a good bedtime routine, I recommend that screen time isn't used 60 minutes before going to sleep. Dimming lights 30-60 minutes before bedtime to minimise light exposure. Reading books, doing puzzles and quiet games gives children the change to wind down. Going to bed relaxed to encourage a good night's sleep.

The best sleep environment for your baby

  • Darkness

  • White noise

  • Clear cot

  • Temperature

Sleep on the go

  • Make the sleep space similar to home.

  • Follow your usual routine.

  • Still allow time to wind-down.

  • Bring all your usual sleep essentials.

Why you should start your day at the same time each day

I recommend starting your little ones day at the same time each day. 

This helps regulate their internal body clock and means naps will be more predictable.
