19: A Conversation About Sleep with a Sleep Consultant
Show Notes

As part of my sleep series of podcast episodes, I wanted to welcome a sleep consultant. 

Sleep consultants are relatively new in the world of parenting. Over the past 10 years, they continue to gain in popularity. In Episode 18, I discuss my personal views on sleep consultants and if every family needs one to have a successfully sleeping child.

I am so happy to welcome Andrea, a sleep consultant (@babysleep.answers on Instagram). We have a great conversation about infant/child sleep.

We talk about sleep training (and sleep in general) including her thoughts on various methods and considerations when a family is deciding how to aid their child is self-settling. She also tackles common questions I get asked in regards to transitioning baby from a bassinet to a crib, naps, early wakings, and information on cry-methods of sleep training and methods with less crying. 

Tune in and make sure to also listen to episode 16, 17, and 18 as all episodes are jam-packed with useful info that pertains to sleep and sleep-training.

Follow us at @pedsdoctalk and @babysleep.answers to continue the conversation!
