Kids Sleep Dr app launched
Around 20% of children have sleep problems which their parents find hard to deal with. With the exception of some of the more serious sleep disorders, many childhood sleep problems can be solved by parents once they have the confidence and knowledge to understand what is happening and how best to help. 


Kids Sleep Dr  is a new sleep diary app which allows parents to understand their child’s sleep patterns, track their progress, and receive sleep tips personalised to their child.

Designed by Professor Paul Gringras and sleep experts at Evelina London with technology company RMA Consulting, the app features an innovative finger-painting technique so parents can fill in their child’s sleep diary by ‘painting’ in the hours.


Research shows that most apps emit blue enriched light, which can postpone and disturb sleep. Kids Sleep Dr is the first app to use a unique colour palette that emits light that won’t disturb sleep.


Kids Sleep Dr allows parents to email summary reports, containing all relevant patient data, at the touch of a button from their smartphone. 


Kids Sleep Dr is available for download now on iOS, with an Android version to follow. Visit for more information.
