Welcome to the Infant Sleep eLearning Program. This program is designed for health professionals and parents to help babies aged six months and older learn to sleep during the day and overnight. Research tells us that over a third of babies experience problems settling to sleep at the start of the night or waking overnight, or both. This can have a big impact on the parents and other siblings. At the Centre for Community Child Health, we have overseen a decade-long research program to help babies settle to sleep. Through a series of high quality trials and face-to-face training programs, we have tested a number of techniques that are safe and effective to use in babies aged six months or older. This program will teach you about these techniques and provide you with materials to support you and the parents you see during these often challenging times. Read More
