I regularly talk about sleep.
I love sleep.
I always feel like I don't get enough.
I never understand why children insist on denying they are tired when they very clearly are!
It also makes me laugh when people use the phrase "sleeping like a baby" ..... I am quite sure those people have never had a baby that wakes repeatedly in the night (or a toddler for that matter).
So I have been looking at the top Sleep Myths .....
So how do we get the holy grail of uninterrupted deep sleep? Well aside from asking the grandparents to have small children overnight, sleep experts Sealy believe that our bodies are not uniform so why should our mattresses be any different? Given that we have a small asthma sufferer in our house, it is really interesting to know that the natural “Purotex” addition to Sealy mattress ticks has been endorsed by Allergy UK for the elimination of house dust mites (a common cause of asthma for some 5 million people in the UK and Ireland).
So aside from making sure that you have the best mattress for you, here are some other sleep related facts (some are quite surprising).
I am now just working on trying to get the toddler to self soothe ....... wish me luck!
