From around six months, babies develop lots of new abilities that can affect their sleep. They might wake more often or even keep themselves awake, which means settling can be more of a challenge.

Baby sleep and settling: about this webinar

You’re invited to join a free webinar on baby sleep and settling. If you have a baby aged 6-12 months and you’d like some advice about sleep and settling for your child, this webinar might be for you.

At around six months, your baby will develop lots of new abilities that can affect sleep. For example, at this age babies gain the ability to keep themselves awake. At the same time, they’re learning many exciting new skills like rolling and crawling. They might also start experiencing separation anxiety, which is when they get upset because mum or dad isn’t there.

The combination of being able to do exciting things and being able to stay awake means your baby might wake more often during the night and be more reluctant to go back to sleep.

This webinar:

  • looks at how baby development at 6-12 months can affect sleep
  • offers tips for developing new routines, using settling strategies and getting to know your child.
