From the best beds to food processors that allow parents to prepare meals during pre-dawn Suhoor, these picks will have your little ones sleeping like babies

When Ramadan begins, some parents may be concerned about maintaining the sleep patterns of their infants and young children. While the Holy Month is marked by spiritual contemplation, fasting, and heightened devotion, the importance of maintaining proper nutrition and sufficient sleep for children should also not be overlooked. Amidst the observances and festivities, parents are tasked with delicately balancing the demands of fasting with the vital needs of their young family members.

Below is our shortlist of the best-in-market buys for prime feeding and quality sleep this Ramadan:

The Stokke Sleepi bed

The Stokke Sleepi bed is a leading bed for little ones and enables maximum air circulation for comfortable sleep.

From birth to about 6 months, the Stokke® Sleepi™ Mini is used as a baby bed or bassinet. With the extension kit the bed transforms it into the larger bed, where the child can have sound sleep up until 5 years – this means a safe and familiar sleeping environment is maintained. A premium purchase that is an investment encouraging quality sleep, the crib can improve the quality of sleep for little ones during the holy month and throughout the year.
