WHAT PEOPLE SAY...

Psychologist, Bournemouth University

Dr Andrew Mayers

Thanks to the work of the Children’s Sleep Charity, families’ lives are improved on a daily basis. Sleep deprivation plays a huge rule in mental wellbeing at all ages, but especially for children. Poor sleep is a major risk factor in all mental health problems. By supporting children to get a better night’s sleep, the Children’s Sleep Charity is establishing routines that will have a positive impact on the rest of their lives. I am proud to support this charity and their important work

Editor-in-Chief, Netmums

Anne-Marie O'Leary

Netmums is a proud supporter of The Children’s Sleep Charity. We know that sleep deprivation is a contributing factor to maternal mental health as well as the wellbeing of children, so the work of The Children’s Sleep Charity in teaching all of us how best to help our babies and children to sleep is vital. In particular, their child-centred, bespoke approach is one that makes complete sense to mums. Long may their excellent work continue.

Parent

Just a quick email to send on my thanks and praise for all help given to me. My son is 2.5 and has never slept since been a baby I have had sleepless nights since go and no matter what I did nothing changed. I cannot thank and praise you all enough for your kindness, enthusiasm and encouragement throughout the whole period. The Children’s Sleep Charity helped me change my son's routine and gave tips and advice on what to do and I noticed an improvement within days. Simple things that no one else had ever mentioned to me! I now have a happy, intelligent little boy who amazingly sometimes asks to go to bed because he's tired and doesn’t stir until 6.30 the next morning. I'm a happy, calmer mummy who has stopped crying most nights from sheer exhaustion and we can now spend happy days as a family without us all been tired and grumpy from horrific nights! I've had lots of different advice about sleep from different professional people all of which have failed. I highly recommend anyone struggling to speak with yourselves, you not only give brilliant advice but you see it through. One very happy mummy!

Our partnership with The Children’s Sleep Charity is crucial because our members see first-hand the impact of sleep deprivation in a child. Quality sleep promotes healthy childhood development and the charity provides invaluable advice to both early years practitioners and parents. By working together we have a collective aim of providing accurate and up to date information and expertise, to equip childcare professionals in supporting parents and children to help them all get a good night’s sleep.
