Episode 6: Wellbeing For Parents - How To Deal With Sleep Deprivation

What about me? You say. Sleep deprivation is no laughing matter. In fact, it is classified as a form of torture. So in this episode we look at practical ways to manage that serious, fog-inducing lack of sleep. Dr Delwyn Bartlett from the Woolcock Institute of Medical Research talks about the difficulties new parents face. Nutritionist Heidi Sze talks about the food that can nourish us. Social worker Lana Sussman from The Parents Village gives us some simple coping strategies, and psychotherapist Melissa Hughes from Baby and Beyond Counselling, talks about the impact sleep deprivation can have on relationships and how to minimise the fall-out.

Episode 4: The Elephant In The Room: Co-sleeping

Most parents at some point will end up co-sleeping with their baby or toddler, and yet we are often told that it's the worst thing we can do. It's not difficult to find a story about co-sleeping that ends in tragedy. But many of us still do it. Some choose it consciously but keep it to themselves. This week on The Promise of Sleep we look at the pros and cons of co-sleeping with experts including parenting educator Pinky MacKay, James McKenna, Ph.D, Director Mother-Baby Behavioural Sleep Lab, and Lorraine Harrison, Red Nose Safe Sleep Educator.

Episode 3: Sleep School - Self Settling

Self settling is essentially controlled crying's more evolved sibling. Once upon a time people would say to let a baby "cry it out." Self settling is a process of letting a baby cry a little bit, then responding when it feels right. Little Ali (8 months old) is not sleeping well at night. This episode follows the family's experience with Mothercraft Nurse Chris Minogue as she takes a holistic approach, tweaks Ali's routine and applies self settling techniques to improve his sleep.
