Posted on 3 April 2018

What may look to you like a nap are actually processes in your baby’s brain that are as critical to his health and progress as good nutrition. Dr Birgit Schlegel – a paediatric neurologist at Mediclinic Constantiaberg – tells us more about what happens to your baby’s brain during the different sleep cycles.
