Hear from Hana, Founder of Love To Dream™, about her story of sleepless nights and severe sleep deprivation with her first child, the reasons why we created the Love To Dream™ Sleep Series as a gift for all expectant parents, parents and carers, how the Sleep Series works and the information it covers.
Things I Wish I Knew About Baby Sleep
Meet some of the experts from our Dream Team and hear about the things that Hana (and so many other parents) wish she had known about babies and sleep before she left the hospital with her newborn. This is really valuable information for all expectant and new parents to know and remember - and will help in your journey with your baby to better, longer sleep.
Foundation 1 - Part III. The Afternoon & Evening Routine
The next step in Foundation 1 is all about the afternoon and evening routine. This routine is key to helping your baby understand that the day is coming to an end and night time is on its way. Hear how the sleep-feed-uptime cycle changes and the steps you can take to help your little one prepare for their night time sleep.
Swaddling & Dressing Your Baby For Sleep
In this episode Hana and Courtney discuss everything you need to know about swaddling - the best ways to swaddle, the benefits and how long to swaddle for. They also share tips on how to transition from swadding to arms free sleep and how to know what to dress your baby in for sleep.
Foundation 4 - Self-Soothing & Settling
In this episode our sleep angel, Courtney, covers the final foundation to healthy sleep; Self-soothing and settling. She shares tips to help your baby nod off to sleep on their own and techniques you can use to help baby settle and re-settle to sleep when they need some extra support.
'Back To Base' - When It All Goes Pear-shaped
We hate to say it but there are some days when you'll feel that everything has gone pear shaped and your little one just won't settle. It happens to everyone! In this episode, Hana, Edwina and Courtney take you through the 'Back to Base' technique. A great way to break the cycle and help baby settle and get back on track.
