Sleep with KIP: helping families sleep better
Clinically validated, evidence-based help for your kids. Developed by the MCRI, Australia’s #1 child health medical research institute
Kip’s mission is to teach every Australian child how to sleep
When Kip set out to teach every Australian how to sleep we knew we had to come up with a way to ensure every family could access the Kip series. We are working hard to make it easy and affordable. Today there are several ways you can access the Kip books.
As we move forward we will be aiming to work with key charity partners to distribute Kip books to communities in need. If you’d like to help us with our mission to ‘teach every Australian child how to sleep’ please contact Sam Holt at email@example.com
Teaching your kids healthy sleep habits is a valuable life skill
Almost every parent has experienced a behavioural sleep challenge with a child. Challenges getting to sleep, waking in the night and early waking are common issues faced by parents across the world.
Sleep problems can adversely affect your child's mental health and learning, not to mention making life harder for mums and dads and others caring for kids. Kip is here to help. No apps, no notifications, no screens. If you read to your kids before bed, Kip will fit right into their bedtime routine.
Whether you are currently experiencing a sleep problem or you just want to teach your kids how to sleep better, KIP is here to help.
Fun bedtime stories your kids will love and you’ll enjoy reading
Follow Kip on a series of creative adventures that helps your child learn about healthy sleep habits. The series is designed for bedtime reading & is accompanied by career-focused resources to provide guidance for discussion & learning.
Help your child with visualisation
Older children can find it hard to get to sleep because they are worrying about things. Relaxation techniques can help ease their minds. This book can get them started as they imagine they are lying on the beach, with the sound of the waves, and a warm breeze passing over them...
How and why does KIP work?
Based on over two decades of research, the KIP stories are a fun and friendly way to learn to manage common sleep problems in children. At the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute we pride ourselves on generating and sharing evidence-based advice for baby and child sleep. This advice for kids is now captured in the Kip books. In this series of 6 books, we share our knowledge about common sleep problems in children and how to manage them. We focus on what is known as ‘behavioural’ sleep problems e.g. problems getting to sleep, waking up a lot overnight, or early morning waking.
