UK HOTELS HELP NEW MUMS FINALLY CATCH UP ON SOME SLEEP
Friday, 26 February 2016
16 hotels across the UK are launching a novel new sleep and pamper focused package designed exclusively for new mums this Mother’s Day and beyond.
‘The Mummymoon’ package, from the UK’s largest independent hotel management company Redefine|BDL Hotels, provides new mothers with one of the best presents they can receive – sleep. Responding to new mums averaging very little sleep, despite needing around 7-9 hours a night, the specially created overnight package provides mothers with the opportunity to rest and recharge their batteries away from crying babies, snoring partners and never ending household duties. If mums don’t fancy a solo overnight they can bring along a friend/partner*.
The Mummymoon includes options* such as essential hair & beauty treatments and indulgent snacks to complimentary room service, entertainment offerings and late check out. Each new mum will receive a relaxation guide and some hotels are offering a service where the guest’s candlelit bubble bath is run for them, alongside an indulgent bath side tray of nibbles, drinks and magazines.
Lisa Artis, spokesperson for The Sleep Council said “Ask any new mum what they want and the answer will be a good night’s sleep. Fragmented sleep for weeks, if not months, following the birth of a baby can leave new mums feeling bad tempered, tearful, forgetful and depressed.
“Sleep is as essential to a healthy lifestyle as diet and exercise. Not only does it make you feel better, happier and energised but you also look better too – think brighter eyes and skin.
“Mums need to make sure they receive some ‘me’ time - wind down properly before bed, take a warm foamy bath, read a book or listen to some soothing music.”
Yvonne Brennan, group marketing manager for Redefine|BDL Hotels, said: “At Redefine|BDL Hotels we know exactly how to help mums unwind and recharge their batteries. It’s hard for a new mother to find time to get a good night’s sleep, let alone catch up on essentials such as a hair cut or an eyebrow tidy – all things which help make you feel a more like yourself.
“The Mummymoon is specially designed to meet these needs. Launching in time for Mother’s Day, we expect this will be popular offering throughout 2016 and beyond – both as a gift or even as a treat for mum to indulge in for herself. We can’t wait to spoil mums across the country!”.
Scotland’s leading children’s sleep expert Linda Russell added “For new parents sleep becomes a luxury and the thought of a good night’s sleep a long forgotten dream. Parents really need about 7-9 hours of undisturbed sleep a night”.
New mum Vicki Finlayson (36), from Kilsyth, who is mum to 10 week old Ariana, and who tested out the package said: “The Mummymoon allowed me to receive some much needed TLC from the hotel and catch up on some beauty maintenance that I’ve not had time for since Ariana came along. Getting some time to myself and a full night of uninterrupted sleep was total bliss and I feel ready to take on the world!”
