Taking Control of Your Family’s Sleep

It may be a popular notion that when you become a parent you say goodbye to sleep and that you will henceforth be exhausted until your children leave home, however I believe that with a little bit of guidance most children can learn the techniques and strategies needed to sleep through the night from an early age, giving parents the ability to be well rested themselves, able to keep up with the demands of life and parenting. 

Sleep Solutions with Alison Jones was founded with the intention of improving the quality of sleep that families get, because well rested families are happier families!  

 If you need help and don’t want to lose another night of precious sleep – call me, Alison your Hong Kong children’s sleep expert for a solution that is tailored to your specific family needs!

Parents Comments

Michelle & Baby Z

If any of you are looking for a specialist in helping improve your baby or children’s sleep I highly recommend Sleep Solutions with Alison Jones…. as now I am getting at least 8 uninterrupted hours of sleep a night and it has taught our little Zoey a very important life skill of self settling and she too gets to sleep the night away. 

Candice & Baby K

Alison was a godsend and we soon came to the realization that the sleep training process is not daunting at all. It gave us as parents the proper tools in teaching Kaitlyn how to self-soothe and be a happy, healthy and thriving little girl.

Melanie & Baby Z

Once we started with Alison, she slept through on the second night, I still have tears thinking about how amazed we were as I really thought it would take so much longer. Now, over 2 months later plus two trips overseas, she is still sleeping through the night.

Dave & Baby S

 The extremely quick change in our son’s sleeping patterns was remarkable where after a few nights, he was sleeping for much longer sections and quickly soothing himself back to sleep when he did wake up. Absolutely can’t recommend enough – thank you.

Shirley & Baby E

Working with Alison has been one of the best decisions we’ve made as parents….  Alison gave us all the right tools, education, confidence and support to successfully teach our daughter how to self-soothe. We saw changes / improvements from night 1 and she started sleeping through the night from night 2!

Holly & Baby S

Alison held our hands through every doubt and tough moment, and she did it with limitless kindness and humour. I never felt rushed – she was a teacher and a friend when I needed her. Now our baby sleeps throughout the night and naps properly in the day. Bedtimes are my favourite moment of our day together and don’t feel like a battlefield any longer.

Julia and Baby B

Within this 2 weeks sleep training, baby Bernie has not just learnt how to soothe himself to sleep on his own, his sleep routine has improved greatly with established 3-4 naps during the day time and 7pm-7am night time sleep without many interruptions.

Sasha

We were a bit worried we’d left too late and to be honest a bit sceptical if we would see it through! But after a week of sleep training and Alison’s support, we saw massive improvement. Now our baby settles down for naps really easily and with barely any fuss and is sleeping through the night 

Linda

We just finished the training with Alison and thanks to her professionalism and patience, our son is now sleeping through the night and so are we!!

Sammer

Tailored made solutions cater to each unique baby. Positive continuous support and encouragement for parents.

𝑫𝒊𝒅 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒌𝒏𝒐𝒘 𝒕𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝒄𝒉𝒊𝒍𝒅𝒓𝒆𝒏 𝒂𝒓𝒆 𝒆𝒙𝒕𝒓𝒆𝒎𝒆𝒍𝒚 𝒑𝒉𝒐𝒕𝒐𝒔𝒆𝒏𝒔𝒊𝒕𝒊𝒗𝒆?  What that means is that just the slightest change in light – even just a tiny sliver above the curtain rail or at the sides where the blind doesn’t quite meet the wall – sends a message to the brain to wake up. So, we can’t really be mad at them when they wake up early, because they’re only doing what their brains are telling them to do.  #sleepfact #didyouknow #sleepblog #infantsleep #babysleep #toddlersleep #bedroomdarkness #bedroomcurtains #lightblockerwindows #earlywakeup #exhaustedmom #tiredmom #sleepdisturbances #paediatricsleepconsultant #certifiedsleepconsultant #certifiedsleepconsultantsingapore #sleepconsultantforhire #sleepconsultanthongkong #momownedbusiness #hongkong
Often parents struggle with getting their little one's to get to sleep and we often forget that as hard as it is to get them to sleep, the opposite problem is when they wake too early.  As a mom I know that the early wakings can completely throw schedules out of sync and often mess with naps and the bedtime as a result.  If you're looking at ways to get your kids to sleep in a bit longer especially during summer months, head over to my latest blog where I go into detail about how the slightest bit of light can contribute to early wakings and an amazing product that could very well be a game changer for you.

What is your strategy for managing YOUR emotions during a full on toddler meltdown? Do you even have one you would be willing to share?
.  Following my post from yesterday - I wanted to share something that's helped me deal with myself because I'm not going to lie...I haven't always kept my cool in the midst of my little one's tantrums.
.  In my effort to raise a human who I actually like, I’m acutely aware of the importance of how I handle myself, because she is watching me and learning how to deal with her emotions simply by observing. (No pressure, right? 😱)
.  Having a strategy to use is half the battle one so here is a really effective exercise I’d love to share with you:  STEP 1- Start by taking three slow and long deep breaths in and slow breaths out, gently let go of all the noise in your head and focus on hearing the sound of your breath in & out.  STEP 2 - Take a moment to focus on what you can hear.  Identify 5 different sounds and gently name them - eg, dog bark / siren / bird chirp etc.  STEP 3 - Now focus on what you can see.  Find 5 things that you can identify and name.  Be specific - eg, green leaf / Blue water bottle etc.  STEP 4 - Focus on what you can feel.  Scan your body and see what you can feel - eg, itchy nose / weight in chair / foot on the floor etc.  Now you can re-engage in the situation feeling calmer and open to help you little one navigate their big emotions without adding fuel to the flames of their meltdown.  Hope that helps you my fellow Mammas!  #toddlersleephelp

Being a mom is hard.  Thats the honest truth - there are days when you think you have it nailed, and days when you think you are total failure as a human never mind a mum!  The good news is that nobody is perfect, we all make mistakes and we ALL can choose to learn and grow….if you struggle to keep yourself cool in the midst of a toddler meltdown - you are not alone!
.  Have you ever noticed that on the days when we are feeling a little stressed or that things beyond your control are getting you down - those are the days your little ones seem to test your patience and push you to what feels like the brink of your sanity?  The reason is mirror neurons.  Just like a yawn is contagious, so is our energy.  Children regulate their emotions and energy by watching and readying us.  This is why it is easier to manage our child’s upset when we respond to them with empathy, love, consistency and confidence.
.  Taking a few moments to get yourself into a place where you’re in better control of your emotions will serve everyone better when you feel like you’re getting increasingly anxious or angry and losing control.  It doesn’t need to be long - it is just a few moments to give yourself a chance to get your brain chemistry working for you and not against you.
.  Just like you need a minute to reset your wifi router - give yourself permission to take a moment so that you can reset your inner being so that you can be the calm you want to see in your children.
.  Stay tuned for my tips in managing your emotions...
.  Sleep issues in toddlers are largely behaviour driven - if you are constantly facing a battle at bedtime or dealing with disrupted sleep and crib escapes - I can help.  Call me today for a free evaluation!  #toddlersleep

There is something magical about childhood, wouldn’t you agree?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Believing in mystical things like unicorns and faeries and princesses has the power to take us back to being young, free and innocent and uninhibited…⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As an adult, it can sometimes feel silly pretending but it can actually be quite useful to bring fun and magic into some of the mundane everyday chores.  I dare you to give it a try…⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When it comes to your little one’s sleep - if you need some magic to get your little one sleeping better - I’m your unicorn faery godmother who will happily help give you some of my magic tips, tricks and schedules to get on track to your family’s sleep being restored!

What temperature is your air conditioner set at in the summer?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Summers in Hong Kong are notoriously brutal and I don’t know a single household that doesn’t struggle with getting the right temperature / maintaining a consistent temperature on at least one of their units in the summer 🤪.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Recommended temperatures for little one’s rooms when sleeping is 18°C - 21°C.  I honestly find that it is very difficult to maintain those low temperatures in the height of summer.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
22°C and a 1 tog sleeping bag in long pj’s in this extreme climate is achievable and cool enough for good quality sleep.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Inconsistent temperatures while sleeping can cause unnecessary wake ups such as night terrors if overheating or waking in the early hours when the body’s core temperature drops and your little one is cold.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you have noticed that your little one is suddenly waking up in the early hours of the morning (getting cold 🥶 ) or experiencing night terrors in the early part of the night (overheating 🥵) - it could be temperature related.  If you don’t have any temperature control issues, count yourself lucky!
How is your little one coping with Tummy Time?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I often hear parents saying that their baby hates being on their stomach.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When you think about tummy time for your little one, think about what it feels like if you lift weights in the gym that are too heavy for you.  Really uncomfortable and fatiguing right?!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is what too much tummy time can feel like for your baby - so be mindful that they’re getting ample opportunities for short periods of time throughout the day.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tummy time is good for developing the motor skills needed for rolling, sitting, and crawling.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Your baby will be less likely to have a flat head due to too much time laying in one position.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Babies develop and strengthen their back, neck and shoulder muscles for holding up their heads.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Make tummy time interesting by putting a toy just out of reach or a child safe mirror on the floor so they can see themselves.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do you have a pic of your little one on tummy time you can share?
Happy Easter Everyone 🐣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Wishing you a lovely long and relaxing holiday break filled with quality family time, just a little bit of chocolate, and of course enough restful sleep 💤⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Try to keep your routines (and nap times 🕛 and bed times 🕖) the same as normal.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you can’t keep to your schedule - enjoy your time to the full and get back on track the following day.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
