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.

Taking a break for some 𝙎𝙀𝙇𝙁 𝘾𝘼𝙍𝙀 💕 is so important…⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💞 Give yourself permission to set some time aside for yourself to spend in whatever way will recharge YOUR battery.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💞 Whether thats a massage, a manicure or pedicure or facial, a movie on your own, a coffee, a walk on the beach, a gym class or even some shopping for a new outfit for date night - the key is that it is your time to enjoy.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💞 Try to have a weekly time slot of FREE time that you can enjoy without guilt or worry about everyone else.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💞 It is your time, so savour every moment of it and determine not to worry about what you can’t control at home.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💞 As the heart and soul of your family, you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to look after yourself.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💞 It’s been a long time since any of us were on a flight and listened to the safety briefing…but remember how they always say to secure your own oxygen mask before you do so for your children?  The reason…what good are you to them if you can’t help them?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💞 It isn’t a selfish act to fill your own bucket so that you can keep up with all the demands placed on your time and energy and body!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💞 Having time to step away and gather your thoughts, decompress and relax allows you to return fully present and engaged and ready to face the challenges that await.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💞 If you don’t take a break and look after yourself, it is easy to become resentful, snappy and short tempered.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you are too tired to even contemplate a break - give me a call TODAY and I’ll help you sort out any sleep difficulties your little people may be having!  Well rested Mums are happier Mums too 💕
You’re out of the newborn phase 🥳 and your baby is a lot less sleepy and way more alert!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These are exciting times and watching your little bundle of joy growing up so quickly before your eyes is truly special.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here are some of my top tips for nap schedules:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For the time being, forget trying to get on a fixed schedule - it is far more important to follow awake windows so that you can prevent baby from getting overtired because being too tired makes it harder to actually fall asleep.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The ideal awake time a 3 month old baby can sustain before needing another nap is somewhere between 1h15 - 1h45.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Keep the first window somewhere in the middle - roughly 1h30.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Try not to start the first nap of the day before 07:15 as it may get you into a cycle of very early morning wakings.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Once baby has woken from their nap - start by changing their nappy and taking them into a nice bright room for their feed.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Try not to let baby get drowsy while feeding.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Aim for a nap to start 1hr30 - 1hr45 after each wake - followed by feeding and play.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Avoid baby sleeping past 18:30 so that her night isn’t compromised.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
19:00 - start the bedtime routine with a full feed.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
19:30 - end your bedtime routine and place baby in her crib awake, tired and ready for a good night sleep.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you’re having a tough time with your little one’s sleep - I’d love to help you get on track with some good healthy sleep habits.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While it isn’t yet appropriate for your little one to be sleeping through the night (because they need milk for energy to keep sleeping), hang in there…it won’t be too much longer and they can be sleeping through the night!
How do you know when to ditch the bottle 🤷‍♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After 12 months a baby’s nutritional requirements are fulfilled by food rather than milk.  Thats not to say that they don’t still need milk as part of their diet it just means that they are going to need to be sustained by the food they eat as milk just won’t cut it for the amount of activity and development any more.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
At this point it is a good idea to switch to drinking milk from a sippy cup - but why?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🍼  To avoid any strange attachments to bottles⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🍼  To prevent baby from filling up on milk rather than food⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🍼  To ensure that baby isn’t reliant on a bottle to get to sleep⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Some babies can take a little while to get used to the change and that is totally fine - change isn’t always easy even if it is necessary.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Once you’ve made the change, don’t go back to the bottle so that you aren’t creating any confusion or unpredictability.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fear not if you’ve left it a little late…I’m happy to give you a few pointers as you make your transition.  All you need to do is schedule a free call in my diary! #eatplaysleep⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

What do you see when you look into your little one’s eyes?  I see ♥ POTENTIAL ♥
.  I see an unblemished, perfect little soul full of life, love and unlimited possibilities.
.  I see the true essence of a wonderful person emerging…
.  I see someone who is:  ☆  Loving
☆  Genuine
☆  Brave
☆  Gentle
☆  Concerned
☆  Inquisitive
☆  Eager
☆  Tender
☆  Courageous
☆  Strong
☆  Independent
☆  Happy
☆  Sensitive
☆  Free
☆  Assured
☆  Secure
☆  Creative
☆  Capable
☆  Resilient
☆  Compassionate
☆  Adventurous
☆  Thoughtful
☆  Empathetic  And so much more….
.  Being a mom is one of the hardest and most rewarding jobs in the world.  It is a stretching and sometimes uncomfortable learning process as it pushes us beyond our comfort zones.  It probably also pushes us close to the edge of our sanity sometimes. 
.  The weight of responsibility to lead by example, not repeat family habits or past mistakes is what keeps us on our toes as we learn more about ourselves and how to be the best moms we can be to our precious children. 
.  I’ve recently learned that it takes getting in touch with my own inner child’s true essence to be able to practice empathy with myself and then others. 
.  I invite you to try this exercise too!  Find a quiet moment and look at a childhood photo of yourself and without any judgement, look and see all the good, pure and wonderful attributes about yourself and write them down - no negativity allowed!  It is a beautiful gift to yourself to see yourself as you truly are!!
.  You’ve got this momma!
Halloween and sleep 💤  in the same sentence is can be something of a 😱 nightmare - but it doesn’t have to be!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🎃 Having a late night occasionally to celebrate a special occasion or holiday isn’t the end of the world - life is about balance and having fun.
.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🎃 Live in the moment and enjoy the excitement and get back on track tomorrow by making sure you stick to nap times / usual bedtime.
.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🎃 Expect your little person to wake up around the same time as usual (despite the late night).
.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🎃 Watch the sugar consumption if you can and try to avoid an excessive amount - save some candy for tomorrow (and the next day).
.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🎃 Pay careful attention to what your young children are watching and seeing so as to avoid any nightmares / bad dreams
.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What will you be dressing your little one up as this socially distanced Halloween? 🎃
° 🎀  𝐵𝓇𝑒𝒶𝓈𝓉 𝒞𝒶𝓃𝒸𝑒𝓇 𝒜𝓌𝒶𝓇𝑒𝓃𝑒𝓈𝓈 𝑅𝑒𝓂𝒾𝓃𝒹𝑒𝓇 🎀 °⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Please STOP scrolling - and take a break to give yourself a breast check.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you have even just a slight worry or concern - get it seen to rather than having any doubt!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our little people need us to be strong and healthy to raise them well, so take good care while you’re checking and don’t rush it - try to remember to self check at least once a month. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Beaches in HK 🇭🇰 are finally opening on Friday - Hooray 🥳  If you’ve been missing trips to the beach as much as we have, especially with no summer holidays this year you will be able to now!  Just because temperatures are dropping, it doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of the tail end of summer and enjoy some good quality time with your little person at the beach!  Even if it is a little chilly it is still a great way to spend time outdoors, with the added benefit of a lot of sensory input and stimulation.  Layer up if you need to and take a spare set of clothes for any mess.  Also - baby powder or cornstarch works a treat at getting rid of sand.  Best benefit of beach time…burning energy and sleeping 💤 well afterwards.  Just be sure to watch your wake windows and honour nap times!  Do you have a beach memory with your little person you could share?
