Sleep Support Month: Your Ultimate Guide To Baby Sleep

1st March marks the start of Sleep Support Month by Snüz, a national campaign to Support Sleep Deprived Parents. Snuz will dedicate the entire month to its online community; they’ll be weekly shoutouts, giveaways, and a wealth of sleep content from experts including The Honest Midwife.

Information will cover everything from safe sleep practices and understanding your little one’s bedtime needs, to how to look out for yourself and your partner. Throughout March, Snüz will be supporting and educating new parents on how to deal with the challenges of baby sleep. They’ll be introducing weekly “Snüz Sleep Saviours”, where real mums and dads jump online to share their experiences of parenthood and baby sleep with its community.

My Baba is stepping up to support Snuz and their Sleep Support Month with this article on baby sleep. Here, we’ve compiled a whole list of go-to resources and troubleshooting articles, as well as some of our favourite Snuz products to help your baby get the best night’s sleep.

Baby sleep survey results: did you know?

Snuz’s recent survey concluded that a staggering 70% of parents lose more than 130 nights of sleep in their baby’s first year? Sounds incredible, but it’s true. According to the latest survey by Snüz, 7 in 10 parents are losing an average of three hours’ sleep every night in their baby’s first year, and the realities of sleep deprivation cannot be ignored.

Their recent survey questioned more than 1,300 parents. They found that nearly half (44%) felt massively unsupported when it came to their baby’s sleep. In a separate Instagram poll of around 82k+ parents, Snuz found that on questioning new parents about their baby not sleeping, 88% admitted to this being a cause of stress. 77% talked about the anxiety they feel even before bedtime starts, and 65% of those questioned said they often felt lonely when up late with their newborn.

Sleep Support Month by Snuz

Mark Nicholls, Marketing Director at Snüz said: “Parents are not only losing sleep in the first year, but they are also often feeling stressed, anxious and lonely. We strongly feel it is our responsibility to help, and although we can’t turn up at their houses to offer a naptime for the family, we can commit a full month to try to help from afar. A virtual pat on the back for the community of parents online. The month is bursting with advice, support, positivity and a large helping of ‘You’ve Got This’ to keep parents going and aid the ZZZ’s!”

Sleep Support Month is running in association with The Sleep Charity, an organisation passionate about raising awareness of the impact of sleep deprivation, as well as providing training and advice. The Sleep Charity will be helping provide an expert voice and tips for parents, and in return, the brand will donate £5 for every SnüzCloud sold during March to support all the amazing work they do promote understanding and awareness around the complexities of sleep.

Snüz Sleep Support Month programme

Every week they’ll be content from a number of experts and speakers, so make sure you tune in.

Parenting consultant Elizabeth Day and midwife & founder of Let’s Talk Birth and Baby Louise Broadbridge aka The Honest Midwife will be on hand, along with The Baby Guru, baby behaviour expert Sam Saunders plus many more.

Heelys Rolls Into Spring With New Collection

Heelys, the original two-in-one wheely shoe launched in 2000, is preparing for the upcoming Easter holidays with its new spring collection. Ideal for encouraging an active, healthy lifestyle, the stylish designs will ensure kids (big and small) will roll through the holidays with ease.

The collection consists of 19 designs, including three brand new Heelys shapes: Reserve Ex, Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood. The Reserve Ex has a basketball shoe style, while the Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood tap into the current Y2K trend for an extra chunky sole.

Match your Heelys to your mood, with designs split across two main aesthetics – a darker colour scheme vs. a lighter, spring-inspired palette. Think camouflage print, graffiti text and paint drips contrasting with pastel colours, tie-dye, metallic laces, foil and rainbow print.

Available in the UK and Europe on the Heelys website and retailers, the collection is available in sizes C12-7 across single or two-wheeled styles. RRPs range from £49.99 to £69.99.
