The Baby Sleep Site has helped over 20,000 families develop a personalised sleep plan, and has nearly 700,000 email subscribers who enjoy their articles and parent reflections.
“I’m so excited to be guest blogging on The Baby Sleep Site,” says Hannah. “I’ve been an avid reader of the site since my first daughter was born, and always look forward to the articles in their newsletter! It is great to be able to contribute something for Nicole and her team to use on the site.”
The article itself tackles the topic of ‘Screen Time For Kids‘ and examines the relationship between digital media consumption and sleep for young children. There are numerous links to increased screen time for children and difficulties with sleeping patterns, and this is becoming a topic that parents are increasingly concerned about. For those needing to prioritise sleep in their home, Hannah offers practical tips for parents to put a media use plan in place that will fit the needs and pace of their own family life.
