Two of the UAE’s go-to institutions for all things parenting have teamed up to unlock the secrets to a good night’s sleep, inviting families with young children to attend a series of free workshops, discussions and activities from Sunday February 10th to Saturday February 16th.

Neighbours at Times Square Centre, Eggs & Soldiers and Malaak Mama & Baby Care both share the same driving passion to educate, inform and update new and long-term parents and caregivers of how to simplify and enhance the crucial first years of a child’s life.

We have combined our extensive knowledge and brought together local experts and ambassadors to offer advice and share their experiences on several different sleep-centred topics – including establishing sleep routines, sleeping safely and co-sleeping, problems with toddler sleep, sleep aids, baby massage for better sleep and sleep in pregnancy.

The Sleep For A Week series will also include a practical session on each morning, offering activities that will keep both parents and young children entertained. The Malaak nurses will also be on hand to supervise small children in a dedicated play area throughout the events, leaving parents able to absorb the valuable insight and information being provided.

All events will be held at Malaak Mama & Baby Care, Ground Floor, Times Square Centre, Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai.

All events are FREE TO ATTEND, but attendees must register their interest in advance by calling Malaak on +971 4 328 4019 or emailing: [email protected].
