A baby sleep expert’s advice about the best sleep consultants is in the spotlight this week.
But what about the advice about sleep?
Can a baby sleep better than someone else?
The experts say no.
The experts also suggest that parents should not be pressured to give up their sleep to an expert.
What are the experts saying?
Dr Richard Naughton, who specialises in baby sleep and a sleep consultant at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, said he was not a sleep expert.
He said that babies had a unique body temperature which was not influenced by their sleep habits.
“You have to keep your body temperature stable and your body heat in a stable state to make sure your baby is safe,” he said.
I think that’s the best thing to do is keep the temperature of the baby at that normal level of temperature.” “
The baby is very sensitive to that temperature and so is very happy to have that warmth.
I think that’s the best thing to do is keep the temperature of the baby at that normal level of temperature.”
But he said that baby sleep experts often gave advice to parents that was not based on research.
Dr Naughts advice, based on a recent survey of 2,000 baby sleep consultants, was that baby-sitting companies should not have to pay for sleep advice.
“We’re not in business to advise people how to sleep,” he told ABC Radio Adelaide.
“The baby sleep industry is very small.
It’s a small niche and I think a lot of the advice is not based in fact.
And the advice you should be giving to your baby at this stage is that it’s a good idea to have a safe bed and to sleep in a place that is quiet.
Baby sleep is the biggest factor in a baby’s sleep quality.
There are different types of sleep patterns, but it’s important that parents are making sure that their baby has the right amount of sleep.”
Dr Phil Whitehouse, a consultant sleep expert from the Royal Melbourne Infant Hospital, says parents should be aware of the dangers of sleep apnea (a condition that causes the airway to become blocked).
“Sleep apnea can be extremely frustrating, especially for a young child who is so dependent on sleep,” Dr Whitehouse said.
“When you see a baby who is not sleeping, it’s very, very difficult to know if the baby is really not sleeping.”
But he says there is no research to suggest that babies who are not sleeping are any worse for it.
Dr Whitehouse says that while the sleep of newborns can be very good for them, there is also some evidence to suggest there is an increase in the risk of developing sleep apneas and sleep deprivation.
What is sleep apnaemia?
Sleep apnoea is a condition where the airways become blocked and you cannot breathe through your nose.
Babies with this condition may be more likely to have sleep problems.
If you are concerned about a baby sleeping less than normal, check your baby’s weight and temperature, especially if he or she has had a blow to the head or an infection.
When parents are concerned, they should contact the sleep centre, or call their local hospital.
How to tell if your baby sleeps well or poorly?
Parents are also advised to check their baby’s breathing and temperature at home and at the sleep clinic, as well as at the doctor’s office.
If your baby seems to be getting a bit too warm, it is time to call an ambulance.
Parents who are concerned or have a question should talk to their doctor or sleep specialist.
Sleep consultant Dr Phil White House said that although baby sleep is a very important part of a baby infant’s day, it was not the most important part.
“It’s not the only reason they have a good sleep,” Mr Whitehouse told ABC radio.
“It’s very important for the baby’s brain to be able to be at rest, to be in a relaxed, good position and that is something that a lot more babies will benefit from.”
What do the experts say?
Dr Naughtons advice is that parents shouldn’t be pressured or pressured to stop using sleep experts.
He says parents need to trust the expert.
“If your child is in a sleeping position and there is a possibility that you could get a bad night’s sleep, then it is best to have an independent sleep consultant,” he says.
Naughton says he does not recommend giving up sleep advice because there is not enough research to support the claim.
But Dr White says the advice does not mean you should give up your sleep to someone else.
“There’s a lot to say about the effectiveness of different sleep consultants and you can have a lot different opinions on sleep consultants,” he tells ABC Radio’s RN Breakfast.
