We've reached that time of year where the nights are darker, and the sun is setting early (hello winter, and cosy days to come!). This time change is a crowd-pleaser, we technically GAIN an extra hour of sleep (or do we?) #kids.

Congratulations you’ve survived the first few months of a newborn, have them wrapped snuggly in a swaddle, and baby (may have) finally settled in to a predictable sleep routine. And then comes baby’s first major milestone, rolling, to undo all that hard work!
Becoming a parent is such an incredibly magical and exciting time. It can also be exhausting and confusing, especially when it comes to your newborn’s sleep!
The following article has been written for ergoPouch by certified Paediatric Sleep Consultant, Laura Davis.
We’re shortly coming up to the start of Daylight Saving, normally something we all look forward to! Certified Paediatric Sleep Consultant, Chantelle Angel, talks about how daylight saving may impact your child’s sleep and what you can do about it.
Winter. The months where we hibernate indoors and share plenty of cuddles with our minis. It's about this time of year; that we get many questions about how to keep baby warm in winter at night, and rightly so, it's confusing. You don't want to underdress or overdress them. If just that sentence has you spinning, we got you.
Our new Baby Tuck Sheet is a firm-fitting mattress sleeve designed for newborns who are not rolling. Designed to use over the top of a swaddle or sleeping bag, the Baby Tuck Sheet provides added security, comfort and warmth during sleep. The Baby Tuck Sheet has been stringently tested and approved as safe by leading Australian safety organisation INPAA and follows Red Nose safe sleep guidelines for baby bedding.
Perhaps you're expecting your first mini, you’re adding to your family and need a quick refresher, or your baby is about to have a baby, and you want to relearn to lend a hand – congratulations to all of you! Whatever the reason, we understand how overwhelming it can be whenever a mini is on the way. Our job is to guide you through the process of swaddling and answer all your burning questions around why and how to swaddle baby for safe sleep. As many of us are mothers ourselves, we've been where you are, and we want to ensure you feel supported as you enter into this journey of newborn sleep.
We've reached that time of year where the nights are lighter, and the sun is setting late (hello summer, and balmy nights ahead!). This time change is a crowd-pleaser, we technically lose an extra hour of sleep but we gain summer!
While moving the clock forward one hour is something that makes us sleepy for a couple of days, our adult bodies adjust to the change reasonably quick.
