We've reached that time of year where the nights are lighter, and the sun is setting late (hello summer, and balmy nights ahead!). This time change is a crowd-pleaser, we technically lose an extra hour of sleep but we gain summer!
While moving the clock forward one hour is something that makes us sleepy for a couple of days, our adult bodies adjust to the change reasonably quick.
Summer is just around the corner! Which means carefree days at the beach, pool-side BBQ's, ice cream sundaes, and sun tired little ones... We all know that afeeling after a full day in the sun - pure happiness and utter exhaustion. For many reasons, the sun can really take it out of you! Here are a few tips to make sure your littles stay cool, comfortable and protected during the summer heat as well as how ergoPouch can help support your sleep during summer.
Sunday marked the start of daylight savings time. And, if you’re like most parents everywhere, Sunday also marked the beginning of a nightmare week (or several) of bedtime shenanigans from your children. A handful of you very, on-the-ball, organized, planner-types probably started moving your child’s bedtime 10-15 minutes later every day before the time change happened

The reason there are so many myths is that often information is the result of caring people who have had similar situations and want to share their experiences. Unfortunately, though, not all babies are the same and something that worked for one baby, may not be appropriate for another. Additionally, the world of baby sleep attracts marketing of ideas and products and some will promote anything to parents if it makes money. Even if the information is not based on research or on entire disciplines of study, they are still offered to parents as a ‘fix’. Sadly this leaves desperate parents being offered information that is either inappropriate for them or their baby. This information is derived from a body of knowledge that specializes in the welfare of infants and their families, aimed at supporting health and wellbeing.
There are so many studies that claim to prove the number of hours a baby should sleep. But these studies vary on what the exact number should be. The fact is, as humans, we don’t conform to an exact science - we’re all different. That’s the very reason there will be variations in what the research tells us and variation in how much your baby will sleep.
