ergoPouch Sleep Blog - Tips to Help Baby & Toddlers Sleep
Raising a little human isn't easy. From well-meaning friends, to experts and baby brands comes a slew of advice and information, some of it misleading and some downright dangerous.
ergoPouch work with experts in the field of sleep solutions to offer your family no-nonsense help and support along your sleep journey from birth to five years. If there is a topic that we haven’t covered and you would like some advice, please let us know.
Sleep looks different for everyone. Let’s ALL stop being so hard on ourselves. Sleep is the main dominator we all have in common when we decide to embark on the magic that is parenthood. We all want to know if you're getting it and how much?
We sat down with our friend Dr Golly to chat about preparing a baby for nap time.
Dr Golly (Dr Daniel Golshevsky) is a Melbourne-based paediatrician and father of three. Specialising in unsettled babies and poor sleep, Dr Golly developed this program through his work with thousands of babies over a decade of practice. With a focus on empowering parents and protecting mothers, Dr Golly turns up the volume of that innate parental instinct to maximise parents' understanding of their baby's cues and bring everyone closer to a full night's sleep.
Eczema - or atopic dermatitis - causes dry, red and scaly skin - almost anywhere on the body. Eczema is extremely itchy and is a relatively common contributor to unsettled infant behaviour. If severe, the dry skin will eventually start to crack and bleed, leading to a risk of infection.
Earth Day: Our Commitment to Organic and Sustainable Sleepwear
From day one, ergoPouch has strongly believed inorganic, natural fibre products that care for your child as much as the environment. ‘Organic’ and ‘sustainable’ are woven into the fabric of our brand, our business and our DNA; not just our sleeping bags and sleepwear. We choose to commit to the environment so our babies, babies, can embrace Mother Earth and all that she offers. ergoPouch is honoured to be certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), a badge we wear with pride. Our fabrics are GOTS Certified annually at our factory, by Peterson Control Union. The GOTS is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.
We've reached that time of year where the nights are darker, and the sun is setting earlier - hello winter (and cosy days to come)!
Moving the clock back is something our adult bodies can adjust to quite quickly. However, it can take toddlers and babies a little longer to get back into the swing of things.
For many parents, the mental health of their children is a clear priority. The impact of these conditions left untreated is huge.
How can we do our best to capitalise on the preschool years to avoid future mental health problems in our children? One way is to foster their self-esteem from birth which forms a protective barrier, reducing the impact of mental illness.
Children and sleep can be a challenge for many parents, which feels never-ending. Inconsistent sleep is normal for babies and toddlers as they develop.
So naturally, anything we can do to support restorative sleep for our little ones is worth giving a try.
