So what's the difference between an 'active child' and a 'child athlete'? Dr. Martin says it all depends on the age bracket. "If your child is between the ages of 5 and 8, parents should encourage playing and enjoying physical activity. All children should be 'active' at this age and sport shouldn't be a source of stress."

But, says Martin, as they become older, the competition becomes more intense (the 'child athlete'). "There's more commitment to practice and competitions last longer. If your child's eating habits are poor, it will reflect in their performance on the field."

Create a calm zone
Set the scene for fuss-free naps by paying attention to the sleep environment as well as following a calm sequence to help baby wind down. The nursery should be decorated in muted colours with minimal visual stimulation. Mobiles and toys in the cot signal a play zone when it is in fact a sleep zone.
