Baby sleep and settling at 6–12 months: about these webinars
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.
You’re invited to join two free, live webinars on sleep and settling for babies aged 6–12 months.
In the first webinar, Registered Nurse Di Halloran will talk about what affects your baby’s sleep and settling, and how you can help. In the second Q&A-style webinar a week later, Di will answer your questions about young babies’ sleep.
These webinars are suitable for parents and carers of babies aged 6–12 months.
