Sleep Regression. Is it a myth?

There is a lot of conflicting information surrounding sleep regressions in babies and children.

What is Sleep Regression?

Sleep regression is a term used to describe a disturbance in your baby’s sleep pattern. Usually characterised by regular waking throughout the night and difficulty transitioning between sleep cycles.

When Will My Child Experience A Sleep Regression?

Research suggests that children experience a disturbance in their sleep pattern when they reach a developmental milestone. There are age ranges where this is typical, 4 months, 6 months, 8 months and 12 months, this is because these are the average ages to experience developmental milestones and experience growth spurts. However I think it is really important to remember that children will develop at their own pace. Please do not worry if your baby doesn’t reach these developments by the ages above. If you are concerned, talk to a health professional.
