You've been looking forward to your holiday for ages and can't wait for the rest and relaxation! But if your baby doesn't sleep well while you are away, your holiday experience may be far less enjoyable!
Holidays can also be the trigger to a baby developing negative sleep habits, that can continue to impact on sleep after the return home. We often hear from customers that their baby's sleep got much worse while they were away, and they experienced continued night waking for weeks or months later. This can include babies who were previously sleeping through the night until they went on holiday.
The issues around sleep problems & holidays apply to babies and toddlers of all ages, but in our experience it is most common for babies 5 - 12 months. Babies over 5 months quickly develop new sleep habits and this can mean negative habits form as easily as the positive sleep habits babies need to sleep through.
So how can you ensure your baby sleeps well on holiday (and when you get home)? Read through our tips and advice below.
