Understanding Infant Sleep: Anxiety-Free Sleep for the whole family

  • Abaton Integrative Medicine 235 Randall St Oakville Canada (map)

Infant Sleep! It's the topic of most mommy blogs, drop in groups and online threads... And when trying to learn about sleep, there is a world of conflicting information and advice. It can be so hard to determine what's right for your own family, especially when we don't yet know what normal is!

Setting expectations that are realistic and workable is the foundation of anxiety free parenting! By the end of this class, you will have a good understanding of why babies sleep (or don't sleep) the way they do, what is happening through different sleep phases, and how you can get your entire family the best sleep possible while maintaining strong, secure attachments.

Specifically, we will discuss:
- Infant sleep, biological norms and setting expectations
- Brain growth, brain wiring and how responsiveness plays a role in brain development
- Tricky times to watch for (sleep regressions, progressions, and disturbances, etc)
- Various safe sleep environments and options
- How to respond to outside pressure and advice that may not represent your own goals
- How to determine if there is a sleep problem, and what you can do
- Tips to help the whole family find enough healthy sleep

You will receive emailed handouts.
Babies in arms welcome.
