What do other parents do?

You are not alone! We find that it can be reassuring and inspiring to hear the experiences of others.

To help share ideas, we asked parents to tell us, in their own words, how they managed to cope with a lack of sleep, how they managed to get more rest, or their ongoing journey in using gentle sleep strategies. Their stories are collected in this section.

The stories are written in different styles, and about different situations. Some are long and filled with practical ideas, while others are short and sweet!

We hope these real life stories will help reassure you that your child is normal, you are not alone in your struggles, and that ‘this too shall pass’. They may also give some ideas of how other people cope.
