What is a good night’s sleep?
Babies, parents and Broken Nights
How Baby Sleep Shop helps.
Baby Sleep Shop is a family-run business in every sense of the word. The idea was born with our two sons although we didn’t know it at the time.
Baby Sleep Shop and subsequently Baby Sleeping Bags.Com were built on our experiences as parents, and the knowledge that there are times when, loving mums, dads and carers though we are, we would do almost anything to experience the luxury of a good night’s sleep once again!
It was nearly a year after the birth of our second son before we began trading, but Baby Sleep Shop and Baby Sleeping Bags became an ambition to bring together as many products in one place as we could, that would help contribute to the dream of a good night’s sleep for everyone!

What is ‘A Good Night’s Sleep’?
Don’t feel guilty about wanting a good night’s sleep.
Sleep experts at the National Sleep Foundation suggest three main rules which are the basis to developing a lifetime of good sleeping habits;
1) to establish a regular and relaxing bedtime routine in preparation for bedtime
2) to establish a sleep-conducive environment that is dark, quiet, cool and comfortable
3) to establish a regular sleeping and waking pattern, usually based around day and night
Sleep experts recommend that the average adult needs between seven and nine hours of good quality sleep a night; some need more, some need less. Quality of sleep is defined as continuous and uninterrupted!
Quantity and quality of sleep plays an enormous part in our ability to function on a daily basis, and not getting enough can affect our performance at work and at home, in our relationships and in our physical and mental health.
Sleep experts also tell us that there are many factors that affect our ability to sleep, and we have a certain amount of control over many of them; for example, avoid caffeine and/or alcohol, eat healthily and exercise regularly, take time to relax before bed, and get an early night.
However, there are some factors over which we have no control, at least in the beginning…
