The Durham Infancy & Sleep Centre is a research centre at Durham University. It is the home for a group of researchers examining various aspects of infant and child sleep and parenting behaviour.

The Durham Infancy and Sleep Centre examines various aspects of infant and child sleep and parenting behaviour.

As the research team has grown their research focus has broadened to include infant and child sleep ecology, sleep development, sleep safety, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), parental sleep, night-time infant care, feeding practices and thermal care during sleep.

Can you assist with their latest research programme?

Do you have a baby under 3 months? Are you expecting? Are you over 18 and a non-smoker living in/around County Durham? Would you like to contribute to research on infant-feeding and sleep?

You can take part in the parent-infant sleep-lab's latest study "New-Mum Sleep"! Not only will you be helping to broaden understanding of how lactation affects sleep, but you'll also get £100 worth of high-street vouchers!
