    Have you ever noticed that your baby or toddler will sometimes struggle with sleeping by themselves but when you go to pick them up and cuddle them or bring them into bed with you they sleep soundly.

    When i was a room leader in the baby room of a day nursery i recall this one child who was a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde. He was 2 years old, adorable and so well behaved .... …..until his mum came to collect him.

    When his mum brought him in for a settling in session she warned us that he could be very challenging. We were told to expect tantrums and meltdowns daily but they almost never happened.

    Mum would drop him off to nursery and daddy would pick him up.

    This one particular evening mummy came to get him instead of daddy. Daddy was held up at work and the little angel that we were used to seeing  suddenly disappeared and in his place... the Tasmanian Devil! 

  4. Spring Forward (1)

    Daylight Savings TIme (DST) is fast approaching meaning the clocks will be changing soon here in the UK and will be moving forward by 1 hour.

    On the last sunday in March every year our clocks ‘spring forward’ an hour at 1 am ( making it 2am) marking the start of British Summer time. This year the clocks change on Sunday March  25th.

    This means we lose an hour of sleep but  great news for parents of little ones who like to wake up ready to party at the butt crack of dawn!

    So in anticipation of Spring forward should you plan ahead for the time change?

    That all depends on you & your little one, your little ones personality and ability to cope with overtiredness and slight change will determine how you might  decide to prepare for the clock change.
