Learn how to settle your child to sleep with ease

Sleep disturbances are one of the most underdiagnosed issues in children. It is generally recognised that there are 6 fundamental developmental needs that children need in order to thrive, these are; human connection, play, physical activity, quality nutrition, language, and sleep.

Sleep is often the one that the least emphasis is placed on, yet having good quality sleep promotes;

• Improvements in memory and learning.
• Improved emotional and sensory regulation.
• Increased immune system.

It also has the advantage of decreasing the risks of developing:

• Type 2 diabetes.
• Heart conditions.
• Mental health issues.
• and developmental delays.

So although sleep is often overlooked, it is a cornerstone for allowing all other areas to develop properly.

Research tells us that children of the same age, require a similar amount of sleep per day. If a child is sleeping excessively more or less than their peers, then there is something causing a sleep disturbance.
