Sleep disorder in children is rarely a medical condition; most sleep problems are behavioural conditions preventing the infant or child from sleeping properly. Babies can be trained from early to develop a proper sleep and eat routine. This affects the whole family as parents and siblings will also become sleep deprived as their sleep is continually disturbed by the child that is awake.
National Sleep Foundations recommends that a newborn should be sleeping 14-18 hours each day. "Babies, children, and teens need significantly more sleep than adults to support their rapid mental and physical development."
A Sleep Consultant accesses the home and family dynamics and devise a solution that is customized to your family. The solution may be as simple as a change of routine and correcting the problem is a joint effort with the parents.
