My two-month-old daughter only sleeps on us!

There is no miracle cure to get your baby to go to sleep, but there are techniques you can try which may help. In the following article, I try to explain a baby’s sleep cycles and how parents can help stabilise our baby’s or child’s sleep. Please read Demystifying Baby Sleep.
