Our topic is about sleep."Is your baby sleeping through the night yet?" is often the first question people ask a new parent. The truth is that most babies do not sleep through the night, yet it is a myth that is perpetuated from generation to generation. Babies have needs at night just as they do during the day; from hunger, loneliness, and fear, to feeling too cold or too hot. They need the reassurance of a loving parent to feel secure during the night.
Join me as I discuss the topics of co sleeping, bed-sharing and the myth of sleep training. Later in the show I will be joined by Bill and Martha Sears.
