Rachel, Carleigh and Ash sit down this week to discuss the sleep of our children in the early years. We share how we coped with changing sleep after our babies' were born, the progression of their sleep, the effect on our relationships with our partners and ourselves, and the impact it had on our diabetes and overall health.
Our babies all slept so differently but one thing was universal amongst us - that none of us appreciated our CGM alarms during the middle of the night when we were already tired from waking babies.
For General advice on sleep for children up to 5 years of age, you can call Pregnancy, Birth and Baby on 1800 882 436 or video call them from 7am to midnight, 7 days a week (including public holidays). Your GP can also refer you to local sleep support specialists or clinics.
