    Many mums ask me about separation anxiety and know and expect it to rear its ugly head at the 9 month mark causing crying clinginess crankiness and sometimes sleepless nights. A lot of mums don't realise that separation anxiety, while difficult to deal with in the short term ,  is a good thing and that it can rear its head during the toddler years too sometimes having an even  bigger impact on sleep ( or the lack there of)

The sun feels glorious during the day but at night the stickiness and heat is no fun for any of us in particular the babies. Even babies who sleep through the night will struggle in this heat.  Here are my top tips to help make night times more comfortable for your little one and help them continue to get the sleep they need  despite the hot sticky weather.

    Hey mummies/mommies

    My guess is, if you're reading this right now, is  you have a baby or a toddler who WAS a pretty good  sleeper but now seemingly out of nowhere their  former sleep habits have disappeared and they're now waking a few times over night, or the 2 brief wake ups overnight have become 5 to 6 wake ups overnight, you’re clueless as to why. They're not teething, they haven't been ill and Sleep and night feeding has been upside down for too long for it to be a growth spurt. 

    So what the eff is going on? 

    Well it's possible your little one is experiencing A SLEEP REGRESSION which is both a blessing and a curse.
