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

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.

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.

Have you gotten off to a rough start in the sleep Have you gotten off to a rough start in the sleep department? 🥱  The good news is that it doesn’t have to stay that way!  If making changes on your own feels too daunting, why not consider hiring a sleep coach?  Having someone you can trust to partner with you and guide you to implement healthy sleep habits can make all the difference.  I work with parents around the world with babies (up to pre-teens) to get the sleep they need.  Book a FREE call with me (link in bio) and I’ll explain how I can help - 𝓈𝓁𝑒𝑒𝓅 𝒾𝓈 𝑜𝓃 𝓉𝒽𝑒 𝓌𝒶𝓎 𝒹𝑒𝒶𝓇!

Imagine if you went for a run and you saw a snake 🐍  If you are anything like me your adrenaline levels are going to shoot through the roof 😱⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now imagine someone told you it was time for a nap…. NO ways right? Because you’d be too wired 🤯⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Maybe it sounds a tad dramatic?  So how does it translate for your little one?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Being awake longer than appropriate for their age range can push a baby past “tired” into a state of overdrive.  Cortisol levels increase causing a surge in energy making sleep  more difficult than if they’d fallen asleep tired but not over-tired.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Signs of over-tiredness can be:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
➡️ Frequent wake ups during the night⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
➡️ Difficulty falling asleep at nap time⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
➡️ Increased fussiness during awake times⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To help as a guide - these are approximate awake windows to follow based on age.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👶 0 - 3m - 45 mins - 1.5 hours⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👶 3 - 6m - 1.5 - 2 hours⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👶 6 - 9m - 2 - 3 hours⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👶 9 - 12m - 3 - 4 hours⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👶 12 - 24m - 4 - 6 hours⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Newborns are so divine, and also so HARD!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here is what I would tell myself if I could rewind time and do it again…⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌟 Chill out and take it one day at a time.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌟 Try to enjoy every moment because it really doesn’t last long.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌟 Sleep when baby sleeps 💤⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌟 Be kind to yourself and ask for as much help as you need.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌟 Follow SAFE sleep guidelines - DM me for my FREE summary⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌟 Newborns need a lot of sleep and can usually only be awake for around 45 mins before they need another nap.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌟 Setting a fixed schedule is not at the top of the priority list yet so don’t even stress about it yet.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌟 Breastfed babies in particular fall asleep feeding ALL the time.  Its ok, don’t freak out…as they grow they’ll be more alert and will be able to stay awake through a feeding.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌟Try not to let baby fall asleep in your arms / on you every nap time.  Putting your baby down awake goes a long way to learning how to fall asleep independently 🤱⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌟 Hang in there while feeding is established, hormones settle and you figure it out and get to know your amazing little human 👶⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌟 Just in case nobody told you…YOU’VE GOT THIS! #newbornlife #newbornsleep ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #healthysleep #childsleepspecialist #sleepeducation  #sleeplikeababy #sleephelp  #thisisparenthood  #hongkongmoms⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #sleeptrainingsuccess #babysleephelp #familysleep #tiredparents #babysleeptips #babysleepconsultant #momhacks #messy_motherhood #lifeasmama  #tiredmommy #tiredmummy #tiredmum  #safesleeping

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I love this quote - and the funny thing is that the same is true for us as parents!  We ALL need to make sleep a priority so that we can set ourselves up well to function at our best.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We work so hard trying to make sure our babies follow their nap schedules and bedtime routines, BUT are we doing the same for ourselves?  Let me tell you what you already know 😉 to help remind you that going to sleep is a good idea!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Try to factor in some time between when you finish watching TV 📺 and when you go to bed.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Make sure the last thing you do before you go to sleep is not watch the news or engage in distressing conversation.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Mobile phones before bed are one of the biggest sleep interrupters - I have tried this and proved it is true.  A no phone policy once you’re in bed 📵 is a good one to have.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Going old school and reading 📚 before you turn out the light can be a great way to decompress from your day and allow your mind to focus on inconsequential and mindless things so that when it comes to going to sleep you’re not churning through your day and all the worries of the world.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As much as possible (and certainly during the week) try to observe a regular bedtime 🕙.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do you have a little ritual or bedtime routine that you follow every night before you go to bed? You may not even know you have one, until you actually think about it! These are great cues for our brains to signal that sleep time is coming - I dare you to try it!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Does having to follow a ‘nap schedule’ 📅 fi Does having to follow a ‘nap schedule’ 📅 fill you with dread?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The good news is that it doesn’t have to! 🎉⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Once your baby can fall asleep independently and successfully transition from one sleep cycle to the next, it is absolutely fine to follow the 80:20 rule.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This allows some flexibility into your schedule to spend time away from home over nap time, where baby can nap under supervision in the car, pram or carrier.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These naps on the go are a bit like junk food…they do the job but are not the best.  If on the day you’re out baby doesn’t have the best nap - you can always put them to bed a little earlier so that they can catch up on that lost nap time!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The biggest benefit of a consistent nap time is that it helps prevent overtiredness.  Giving a baby the chance to sleep before they’re too tired is key in keeping their awake times happy and less cranky!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Is it true that babies sleep best in a DARK room? Is it true that babies sleep best in a DARK room? 💤  Yes!! Babies and young children are extremely photosensitive - this means that just the slightest change in light sends a message to the brain that it is time to wake up.  Darkness aids in melatonin production which is the sleepy hormone that helps us to sleep.  Eliminating light from your baby’s sleep environment helps give them better opportunities to fall asleep and get back to sleep faster.  To check if the room your little one is sleeping in is dark enough -  go in and close the curtains (and door) during the day and see how much you can see.  Is there light coming in under the door? Is light coming in above, below or on the sides of your curtains?  If yes - it may not be dark enough.  Try as best as you can to get the room as dark as possible.  While blackout curtains are a good investment, there are other cheaper options (admittedly not as pretty) but just as effective - for example, thick white card or even tinfoil stuck to the windows.  If your baby is consistently waking up at dawn this may be a clue to how sensitive they are to light and that their sleep could be being disturbed prematurely.  If you are tired and struggling, CALL me today - I can help you to get your little one on track to sleep through the night and take good naps in as little as 2 weeks!  #sleepsense #sleepconsultant #gentlesleep #healthysleep #childsleepspecialist #sleepeducation #sleeplikeababy #sleephelp #thisisparenthood #healthysleep  #sleeptrainingsuccess #bedtimestories #babysleephelp #familysleep #tiredparents #babysleeptips #babysleepconsultant #momhacks #messy_motherhood #lifeasmama #tiredmommy #tiredmummy #tiredmum #sleepingchild #sleepingtoddler #sleeproutine #safesleeping
