“Is your baby sleeping through the night yet?”
How many times have you heard that question as a parent to a new baby?
But do you really even know what “sleeping through the night means”?
You might be surprised to hear what a Certified Sleep Expert has to say about it…
“Sleep when the baby sleeps” is another common piece of advice for moms of newborns.
So what happens when the baby DOESN’T sleep?!
Dare I mention sleep training?
I know it can be a controversial topic (like so many decisions in motherhood, unfortunately).
So I wanted to get some answers from Certified Sleep Expert and Founder of Good Night Sleep Site Alanna McGinn in this episode.
Alanna sets the record straight on what sleep training is, what it isn’t, and some reasons you might decide to do it.
Alanna has established the world-wide brand of Good Night Sleep Site as being a #1 sleep resource for families.
She and her team of sleep consultants help families (baby to adults) and corporations overcome their sleep challenges to have well-rested smiles in the morning.
