Did you know the average preschooler has more than six colds a year…
I know what you are thinking, my family has just come off the back of a run of snotty noses. Whilst this is not the most glamorous topic, I have a few tips for you coming into the cooler months. If this is your first winter it is worth being a little prepared.
We have all had a friend or a child who sleep walks. Surveys suggest sleepwalking occurs in two to three children in every 100 children sleepwalk often and approximately five in every 100 children sleepwalk sometimes (Woolcock Institute). I found out these fascinating facts and much more when I recently visited the Woolcock Institute in Sydney. The Woolcock Institute is a leader in breathing and sleep research. I can’t wait to share this knowledge with you in our consultations or through our blog posts.
Sleepwalking occurs in our deeper sleep, also known as non rapid eye movement sleep (NREM). Sleep walking usually occurs early on in the night. It can last for a few minutes and can occur three to four nights in a week on average. People who sleep walk don’t usually remember doing this. A cause for sleepwalking is not always found so keep this in mind if you have a child who is a sleepwalker.
