Is It Ok To Help My Baby Get To Sleep?
Is It Ok To Help My Baby Get To Sleep?

“Is it okay to assist my baby to sleep?” The answer is yes. Your child’s health is likely to be a high priority and you already know that kids get very cranky and difficult if they don’t get enough sleep!

This is a controversial topic as some believe that assisting a baby to sleep will stop them learning the skill of self settling. I disagree. I do not see a problem with assisting a baby or young child to sleep. Having difficulty falling asleep is a common problem and some babies and children need more help in this area.

‘Assisting’ to sleep can include a variety of different things such as feeding to sleep, patting to sleep or just being in the child’s room with them and singing. No matter what method you choose to help your little one fall asleep…..it’s ok!

Young babies especially often need a lot of help falling to sleep. Self settling is a skill that needs to be learnt and takes time. Some babies might learn this skill early on but it might take others well into the toddler years to learn. Is it ok to help a 3 year old fall asleep? In my opinion, the answer is yes as long as the parent is comfortable in doing so.

I believe it’s a myth that assisting a baby to sleep will cause them to never learn the skill of self settling. When a child is ready to fall asleep independently they will do so. What I do encourage parents to do though, is to only help the child fall asleep if they need it. If they don’t need assistance in falling to sleep then there is no need to do it.

Some parents find they get quite anxious about their child learning to self settle. It’s important for parents to manage expectations. Is it ok to expect a 5 month old to fall asleep on their own? No, I don’t believe it is. Some 5 month old babies might be able to get to sleep by themselves, but if they cannot then there is no issue in helping them. This will not stop them learning the skill of self settling when they are ready.

Is it ok to expect a 3 year old to fall asleep independently? Whilst I don’t believe it’s ok to “expect” them to do so, I do believe its fine for a parent of a 3 year old to want them to learn this skill. And, there are lots of different things that can be done to help them learn the skill of self settling.

As a sleep consultant I work with a lot of families who are keen to teach their babies and young children the skill of self settling. If the baby is of an appropriate age then I work closely with the baby and the parents to gently teach this skill using a variety of sleep training methods. Sometimes it only takes a matter of days for the baby to pick up this new skill but sometimes it takes 2-3 weeks.

The Easiest Way to Get Your Children to Sleep
The Easiest Way to Get Your Children to Sleep

There are 1000’s of experts and books that claim to solve all of your sleeping problems but only once in a few years is there a new product that actually comes through and does what it promised to.

Parents are often overwhelmed with the plethora of studies found on the internet and the ridiculous amount of money they have come to spend on products that do nothing more than collect dirt in their home.

Sleepy Starz was created out of the honest efforts of an Australian family who had already gone through the sleeping training process with their child. When looking for the best way to share their firsthand knowledge on the subject they decided to unite their creative forces and develop an effective sleep training accessory which would not only benefit toddlers but ultimately, parents too resulting in more sleep for the whole family!

Sleepy Starz Sleep Clock

As young children cannot read the time and their circadian rhythms are easily disturbed by even the slightest changes in their sleep schedules, the couple decided to develop a toddler sleep training clock – one that relays the concept of time through visual and calming light cues and not by numbers.

Sleepy Starz Sleep Clock

The final result was the Sleepy Starz Sleep Clock which holds an Australian patent (Granted patent number: 2015101639). “We knew we had to figure out a way to match a toddler’s sleep cycle with visual stimuli in which they could relate, as natural light does not seem to do the trick especially during daylight savings which much of Australia experiences. What’s more, we know that many parents live in areas of the world where, during certain periods of the year, there is practically no natural light at all” said Mrs. Emily Duffell, Sleepy Starz’s co-founder.

She went on to add, “The Sleepy Starz Sleep Clock projects child friendly and calming bedtime scenes which eases toddlers’ transition into deep sleep. Parents and children can choose which images they like best, from the seven available options in the Sleepy Starz Sleep Clock, according to their toddler’s and their own personal preferences. Moreover, thanks to its three built-in sleep settings, the Sleepy Starz Sleep Clock offers a customized sleeping experience, which is already delighting both toddlers and parents alike across Australia. When time lapses, the Sleepy Starz Sleep Clock gently transitions to a brighter and calmer light, which much resembles that of daytime. The clock combines the expertise of child experts along with our personal experiences with sleep training our children. We know how efficient the Sleepy Starz Sleep Clock is – and now other parents can see so for themselves too.”

The Sleepy Starz Sleep Clock is available for purchase on the company’s website www.sleepystarz.com and will be in stores soon. Sleepy Starz has also launched two apps, which accompany the product, in the iTunes Store and the Google Play Store.
