What Makes a Sleep Coach Certification Program Great? Hi there, I’ve been training sleep coaches since 2010 (more than a decade!) – and have seen so many programs take after my sleep coach certification.

Safe Co-Sleeping with Your Newborn

Safe Co-Sleeping with Your Newborn The topic of co-sleeping and whether the risks outweigh the benefits of co-sleeping with your newborn or baby is hotly debated in the world of infant sleep. Co-sleeping with your newborn is different from room sharing, which is having the baby sleep in the same room but in a separate bed. The AAP and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have formally recommended against co-sleeping/bedsharing for a child under age 2 because of the increased risk of death or injury from suffocation, strangulation, or entrapment. However, according to one study, 6 ..read more

Roomsharing and Safe Sleeping for Newborns Currently, American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommendations say that infants should room-share until at least 6 months (and longer if mothers continue to feed at night) for SIDS prevention and safe sleeping for newborns.   What Do You Mean by Roomsharing? Roomsharing is when a newborn sleeps on an independent sleep surface in the parent’s room for easy access and safety. (This is not the same thing as bedsharing which is when a child sleeps in the same bed as their parent). Having the baby in a crib right next to you, in a bassinet that you ..read more

How to Get a Newborn to Sleep Please don’t believe this newborn sleep advice – “You must teach your newborn to sleep independently in the first few months or they will have lifelong bad sleep habits” !!! It’s disheartening to hear how many parents of newborns are told that if they don’t sleep train their newborns by leaving them to cry it out that their baby will have lifelong “bad habits”.
