Whats the secret to baby sleep? Nearly 9 months into being a Dad, sleep is quite possibly THE biggest thing I miss and remember almost taking up religion just to pray our little man took to it as soon as possible.
Right now we are at the stage where most nights we settle down around 7pm after his bathtime and night feed, but it doesn’t seem long when I used to do the dream feed around 11pm.
Baby charity The Lullaby Trust has today launched a new dedicated website for young parents, in a bid to tackle rising rates of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) in babies born to teenage mums.
The Lullaby Trust
Babies born to mothers below the age of 20 are four times more likely to die of SIDS than those born to mums aged 20 and over according to the latest figures on unexplained deaths in infancy, released by the Office for National Statistics.
Although the cause of SIDS is not known, there are steps that can be taken to reduce the risk. The new Little Lullaby website, http://www.littlelullaby.org.uk, backed by The Big Lottery Fund will provide young and expectant parents with the opportunity to learn what they can do to lower the risk of SIDS. The Lullaby Trust works to promote information on safer sleep to all parents with the ultimate goal of halving the number of SIDS deaths by 2020. View Post
