Home > Private Sleep Clinic for Children in Birmingham

Does your child struggle to sleep through the night? As parents, we know the importance of a good night's sleep for ourselves, but it's even more crucial for our children. A well-rested child thrives – they have more energy to learn, play, and grow. Yet, many children face sleep challenges, leaving parents feeling exhausted, frustrated, and worried.

We understand your struggle. Our team of paediatric sleep specialists is dedicated to helping your child get the restful sleep they need to feel their best. We believe that every child deserves a good night's sleep, and we're here to help you and your child have a peaceful night.

Our Sleep Solutions

We specialise in diagnosing and treating a wide range of sleep disorders in children, including:

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA): This common condition causes breathing pauses during sleep, impacting sleep quality and overall health.
  • Circadian Rhythm Sleep Disorders: Disruptions to the natural sleep-wake cycle, causing difficulty sleeping at appropriate times.

A Comprehensive Approach

To diagnose the root cause of your child's sleep problems, we take a thorough approach::

  1. Detailed Consultation: We'll start with a thorough consultation where we'll discuss your child's sleep history, symptoms, medical history, and daily routines.
  2. Sleep Assessment: We might use questionnaires, sleep diaries, and physical examinations to gather additional information.
  3. A Home Sleep Study: In some cases, a sleep study might be recommended. This painless test monitors your child's brainwaves, breathing, oxygen levels, and muscle activity during sleep

FAQ

Every child sleeps differently, but some signs might indicate a sleep disorder. These can include difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, frequent nighttime wakings, excessive daytime sleepiness, snoring, or restless sleep. If you're concerned about your child's sleep patterns, we can help you identify any underlying issues.

A sleep study is a painless test that monitors your child's sleep patterns and brain activity while they sleep. It can be a valuable tool in diagnosing sleep disorders. We can discuss the benefits of a sleep study for your child and guide you through the process if necessary.

Children can experience a variety of sleep disorders, but some of the most common include:

  • Insomnia: Difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep
  • Sleep apnea: Pauses in breathing during sleep
  • Restless legs syndrome: An uncomfortable sensation in the legs that can make it difficult to fall asleep
  • Nightmares and night terrors: Disturbing dreams that can disrupt sleep
  • Sleepwalking: Walking or performing other activities while asleep
  • Our team can help identify the specific sleep disorder impacting your child

In most cases, medication is not the first-line treatment for childhood sleep problems. We recommend focusing on establishing healthy sleep habits and addressing any underlying causes for sleep disruption. However, in some cases, medication may be necessary. We will discuss all available options with you and recommend the safest and most effective approach for your child's individual needs.

Creating a consistent sleep routine is one of the best things you can do to promote healthy sleep in your child. This includes establishing a regular bedtime and wake-up time, even on weekends. It's also important to create a relaxing bedtime routine that signals to your child that it's time to wind down. We can share specific strategies and tips to help you establish a successful sleep routine for your child.

Several lifestyle changes can significantly improve your child's sleep quality. These include:

Limiting screen time before bed. The blue light emitted from electronic devices can interfere with sleep.

Ensuring regular exercise. Physical activity can help your child fall asleep faster and sleep more soundly.

Creating a relaxing bedtime environment. The bedroom should be dark, quiet, and cool.

Avoid caffeine and sugary drinks before bed. These substances can interfere with sleep.

We can work with you to identify any lifestyle changes that might be impacting your child's sleep and develop a plan to improve their sleep hygiene.

Our dedicated Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) can address underlying anxieties or negative thoughts that might be impacting your child's sleep.

The success rate of our sleep treatments depends on the specific sleep disorder and the underlying cause. However, we have a proven track record of helping children achieve better sleep. We'll work with you to develop a personalised treatment plan designed to address your child's unique needs and give them the best chance of success.
