“When will my child sleep through the night?” “My child was sleeping through the night, and now he’s waking up again, what do I do?” “Do I allow my child to continue sleeping in my bed?” “My baby woke up crying, do I allow him to cry it out?” The sleeping patterns of babies are often unpredictable and complex. They raise difficult questions and pose a great challenge for new parents. Our goal is to support you in creating healthy sleep habits for your baby so that the whole family gets the rest they need and deserve.
In this talk we will accomplish the following:
· Examine the unique sleep patterns of babies and the differences between newborn and adult sleep.
· Establish realistic expectations for sleep based on the baby’s age.
· Explain routines that can help establish positive sleep associations and promote good sleep habits.
· Ample time for Q & A that addresses the specific needs of the attendees.
