Massage Therapy For Children Sleep Problems - Babies Howling

Around one-third of babies experience excessive disrupted sleep. One common problem is when the baby cries and doesn't settle when you are trying to put them to bed. Another common problem is night-time waking. Young babies have tiny stomachs and need to feed frequently, even during the night. This wouldn't be such a problem for exhausted parents if the baby drifted back to sleep straight after a feed, but this isn't always the case.
