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?
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.
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.
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.
We've reached that time of year where the nights are lighter, and the sun is setting late (hello summer, and balmy nights ahead!). This time change is a crowd-pleaser, we technically lose an extra hour of sleep but we gain summer!
While moving the clock forward one hour is something that makes us sleepy for a couple of days, our adult bodies adjust to the change reasonably quick.
To celebrate the launch of our Easy Sleep Portable Bassinet, we sat down with our friend Dr Golly to chat about sleeping on the go. 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.
All healthy newborn babies are in fact born capable of drifting off to sleep when their basic needs are met, and when they are in the ideal conditions in which to do so.
And when they do, it’s magical.
However, this may not happen all the time and it is absolutely OK to offer hands-on settling support when your little one can’t quite do it by themself.

Winter. The months where we hibernate indoors and share plenty of cuddles with our minis. It's about this time of year; that we get many questions about how to keep baby warm in winter at night, and rightly so, it's confusing. You don't want to underdress or overdress them. If just that sentence has you spinning, we got you.
