Wyndham City Council’s Child Family Health and Wellbeing team is excited to announce they are now offering a new FREE Sleep and Settling Program.

This program is a chance for parents to learn about how their baby’s sleep changes over time and tips and strategies on how to settle your baby, as they grow and change.

Wyndham City Mayor and Healthy City portfolio holder, Cr Adele Hegedich, said the Sleep and Settling Program offers parents an evidence-based, consistent approach to infant and child sleep settling issues across Maternal and Child Health, Early Parenting Centres and Sleep Specialist Units.

“The free Sleep and Settling Program will ensure that parents have access to the information and support they need without the need to travel outside of Wyndham,” Cr Hegedich said.

“Sessions will be facilitated by fully trained Maternal and Child Health Nurses and Child and Family Resource Officers. Online evening sessions and Saturday morning sessions will be available from the beginning of May. The program will then be expanded to include Face to Face daytime sessions in June.”

“We also have an outreach component of the program which has been designed to provide additional support to those families who continue to have sleep issues after attending one of the sessions.”

“Families who qualify for the Outreach Program will be provided with up to six hours of intensive tailored information and support in their own home.”

The sessions times are varied to enable all family members to attend. For more information and session times visit: www.wyndham.vic.gov.au/sleepandsettlingprogram
