Parenting experts to unlock sleep secrets in free event

Two of the biggest UAE institutions for all things parenting will be offering free sessions and workshops for parents to discuss one very important topic – sleep.

Held by baby and lifestyle retailer Eggs & Soldiers and parent support centre Malaak Mama & Baby Care, the “Sleep for a Week” series will feature a practical session every morning from Sunday February 10 until Saturday February 16, with activities to keep both parents and kids entertained.

The first session, conducted by a clinical psychologist at Vivamus, will take place on Sunday February 10 from 9am, and delve into the importance of sleep and common sleep problems. On Monday February 11, B-Safe will be discussing safe sleep, co-sleeping and more.

Don’t miss Malaak Lead Parent Educator Cecile De Scally’s session on establishing a sleep routine, which will take place on Tuesday February 12 from 9am.

More topics include time and touch with your baby, sleep and pregnancy, the ever-tricky toddler sleep as well as prenatal meditation.

Sessions will include a taster class with The Bright Minds Institute, a baby massage tutorial with certified Infant Massage Instructor Louise Atkinson of Dou La La and an introduction to using essential oils to aid sleep with Doula and Gentle Sleep Consultant Elizabeth Bains of the Little Feather Doula Collective. Plus, a weaning workshop with Jordana Smith, dietician at Infinity, The Family Medicine Clinic.

Parents will also sample sweet treats from Tom & Serg and receive a gift from La Roche Posay while the kids play in a dedicated, supervised area throughout the entire event.

Sleep for a week? We’d be lucky to get a few hours in, but that does sound absolutely fantastic.
Free. Sun Feb 10-Sat Feb 16, 9am onwards. Malaak Mama & Baby Care, Ground Floor, Times Square Centre, Sheikh Zayed Road (04 328 4019).
