Sleeping Tips for Parents

  • You need to be realistic. With a young baby, you’ll be waking through the night to feed. During those first few months, sleep is important for most of us, try to sleep when your baby sleeps.    
  • Plan naps as you can through the day as well – if you can, sleep when your baby sleeps. 
  • Who can help? Ask yourself who can offer help such as watching the baby whilst you sleep. Don't be afraid to ask for help.
  • If you are breastfeeding, having your baby in the same room as you can help reduce the impact through the night. You can gently bring your baby over near you and feed them.

Cortisol is the sleep/stress hormone which controls when you wake up. Cortisol levels should be as low as possible when you go to bed. During the night, cortisol levels gradually rise, and when they reach a certain level, you will wake up.
