How to Avoid Sleep Deprivation With a Newborn

So is it possible to avoid sleep deprivation with a newborn baby? Jamie and I have a fascinating chat with sleep expert, Dave Gibson who insists that new parents WILL have disturbance BUT there are things you can do to help the situation… like grabbing sleep (napping!) when you can, especially in the first few days and weeks.

We cover a lot of ground but here’s the key advice:

  1. Nap when your baby naps
  2. Get tonnes of help (from family and friends) and get your partner to take over in the day at weekends
  3. Speed up the acclimatisation by making the daytime bright and light and night time calmer, darker and quieter – this will help get the circadian rhythm sorted and get a baby who thinks it’s day when it’s night, to change!

Dave has been practising as a Naturopath and Osteopath for over 15 years and he is also a qualified hypnotherapist, providing naturopathic advice across a wide range of conditions to promote good sleep patterns and quality sleep. Dave is the resident sleep expert for Warren Evans bed makers, and is founder of

We hope the advice is as useful for you as it was for us!
