On Wednesday April 3, we welcomed Heather Young from Good Night Sleep Site in Waterloo to our Parachute program to discuss sleep strategies with the moms.

There was a great discussion afterwards, and a lot of moms who attended went home with some really great information about how to encourage a better sleep routine at home for their little ones.

Here is a sample of some strategies they received:

Create your baby’s sleep Sanctuary

  • Create a comforting and safe sleep space for your baby, one that promotes a consistent dark, quiet and cool environment

Make naps a priority during daytime

  • Promote an age appropriate nap schedule that will keep your baby well-rested making bedtime easier and night sleep more restorative

Introduce a calming bedtime routine

  • Include a consistent soothing bedtime routine like bath time, stories, cuddles, and gentle talks to help them predict bedtime, while also encouraging a bedtime that isn’t too late

Choose a sleep method for your family

  • It’s important to do your research and choose a sleep method that both you and your partner support and works with your family’s philosophy
