We’ve talked about children’s fear of the dark before, but this is such an ongoing problem for many of us, so we thought we’d revisit it. After all, sleep deprivation is no one’s friend!
In a study by Muris et al 2001 children aged 4 -12 and their parents were interviewed about children's night time fears. Results showed that 73.3% of the children were afraid of the dark.
In a few, short days our beautiful little people will head back to school. For most families it’s a combination of excitement mixed with sadness because the school holidays are over. For some, like us, back to school time is quite challenging due to back to school anxiety. Much to my surprise I’ve realised that we are not alone, there are many families who struggle at this time of year.
Now back to school jitters are completely normal and fade after a few weeks but for children who struggle with anxiety, it can be quite stressful.
I always wanted to develop my own night light after years of selling other companies' products and this year I decided to bite the bullet and jump into the unknown territory of product development head first.
All children are unique and AMAZING in their own special way and I realised that some babies and children need MORE than a night light to calm, relax and help them sleep at night. So I took all of your feedback and developed the Duski Dream Guardian range.
Since our first Duski shipment arrives any day now, we thought it was the perfect time to have a look at all the different apps available to help calm, relax and lull your baby or child into a peaceful, deep, LONG sleep.
If you’ve looked into sleep apps after one too many sleepless nights yourself, you’ll know that there are MANY out there, each claiming to solve all of your family’s sleep woes! It can be very overwhelming trying to choose which one will work for your specific needs, so we decided to test them ourselves.
Not everyone likes routines, some parents find them too structured, but personally, I’m a HUGE fan!
Occasionally I do find myself wishing that I was a fly by the seat of your pants kinda mum, but the idea of just winging it, tends to bring me out in hives!
Whilst change helps children to learn and experience new things, it can sometimes be stressful for them. Having a routine provides certainty and security and this is really important, especially in early childhood.
