Let’s talk SLEEP. Baby sleep. Do you believe that babies and kids naturally learn how to get into a good sleep routine on their own? Or do you believe that they have to be taught good sleep habits? I’m in the second camp! Although some babies sleep well more easily while others have sleep issues, I believe it is important for parents to do as much as possible to teach and encourage good sleep habits in their babies.
My FAVORITE sleep book is Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child, 4th Edition: A Step-by-Step Program for a Good Night’s Sleep. Oh my goodness, this book has been a lifesaver for my family! I love that it teaches the principle that babies, siblings, and parents are all healthier and happier when the BABY is getting good sleep. The book covers so many different stages and possible concerns/issues a baby or family might experience. I cannot recommend this book enough!
My other favorite resource for sleep training is this chart, which I print out and stick on my fridge: https://www.preciouslittlesleep.com/baby-sleep-what-is-normal/ (scroll down a little, and the chart is there. (I checked, and I don’t know if there’s a simple Print or Download button anymore for the chart, but you may be able to copy and paste it to a document, or just copy it by hand.)
That’s it! These two things are my go-to sleep training guides. If you have any sleep training questions or if you just want to make sure your baby or child is on track, I highly suggest checking these out!
Again, here’s the book:
