Understanding and Supporting Infant Sleep Workshop

For parents and caregivers of infants ages 4-15 months old

During this adults only session, participants will gain an understanding of how biology, environment and an infant’s stage of development can impact sleep. Discussion will include: setting realistic sleep expectations for infants ages 4-15 months old; creating positive sleep associations and introducing a bedtime routine; establishing a nap schedule; how and when to wean off night-feedings; ways to encourage longer stretches of sleep; and how to help an infant nap for other caregivers and in other locations. An overview of popular sleep strategies will be provided and plenty of time will be devoted to answering questions. This workshop will provide guidance and reassurance for parents who are wondering, “How can I help my baby sleep better?”

No Sleep Till… Funny Stuff I Did While Totally Sleep Deprived

As we count down the weeks until baby number two joins us, my husband and I have been reminiscing about the newborn days.
