Sleepfullness: The Solihull Approach to sleep addressing the most common infant and child sleep issues

Sleep is important for our physical and mental wellbeing and we know that from birth, sleep is fundamental for healthy brain development.  While sleep is a natural instinct, it’s also a skill we develop: learning how to wind down and how much sleep we need.

Resources created by Solihull Approach in collaboration with psychologists, as well as Solihull health visitors and infant feeding team, promote connected relationships between parents and infants to help children to learn and thrive as they grow.
