Parents know better than anyone what it's like to endure dozens of sleepless nights. Having a child who does not sleep well can be an exhausting process.
But the Tresillian facility is an organisation that has been helping traumatised parents for 90 years. The sleep school helps parents to adjust to their children and how to deal with their family.
Here are some Tresillian tips if you’re having trouble with your child's sleeping:
— Recognise when your baby is tired, such as rubbing their eyes or grizzling
— Respond immediately by putting your baby to bed
— Establish a bedtime ritual, like wrapping a young baby or reading toddlers a bedtime story
— Be consistent with your partner in the settling strategies you use
— Avoid controlled crying
Tresillian costs little, or even nothing depending on your circumstances, as health services will cover it.
