Sleep Webinar

  • Do you have twins or triplets who do not sleep well?
  • Are you struggling to get your twins, triplets or more to sleep through the night?
  • Do you find yourself getting up multiple times during the night?
  • Does a whole night’s uninterrupted sleep seem like a fantasy that you will never achieve?
  • Do you have one twin that is a ‘good sleeper’ and one that is ‘not so good at sleeping’?
  • Do you find it hard to get your little ones to settle down at bedtime?
  • Would you like to find out how to get your multiples sleeping soundly?

If you can answer yes to any of the above questions then you need to listen in to Tamba’s Sleep webinar.

This webinar is designed for parents who have twins, triplets or more aged from 12 months old up until the age of 5 who are experiencing challenges around sleeping (although the webinar would provide useful information for parents with babies aged 6 months plus).  

Part 1 will cover the theory of sleep, good sleep patterns and practice.  Part 2 will cover sleep problems - putting the principles into place for families with sleep challenges using case studies.  There will be the chance to ask questions during this part.
