Baby sleep schedules

Do you have a baby between the ages of 6 and 9 months who seems to struggle with sleep and naps?
If so, y
ou are not alone.

With so much contradictory information on the internet, how are you supposed to work out which one of the many ‘schedules’ will work for your baby?

I’m here to tell you that there is no one set schedule – there is your baby and your individual baby’s sleep needs.

This doesn’t mean to say that, it isn’t useful to have some kind of guide to help you understand when your baby might be tired, or when they may be due a nap if they are good at concealing their tired signs. But bear in mind, that is exactly what it is; just a guide. 

In this video, I will be talking about what baby sleep tends to look like on average between 6-9 months as well as when and how to transition from 3 naps to 2 naps a day.

This information comes from a mix of studying and practicing as a sleep consultant for nearly 5 years in addition to my own personal experience of having 2 children.

Does it now make sense that your baby wants to sleep more than they are doing?

Do you think you may have been keeping them awake too long due to an article or schedule telling you to keep them awake so they sleep better?

Sleep breeds sleep, so if you aren’t sure your baby will sleep at what may seem like such short wake windows, give it a go.

If things are bad now, they aren’t going to get much worse so what have you got to lose.
