Separating fact from fiction about sleep in the first year of life & beyond!
Are you expectant parents who want to learn all you can about babies and sleep before your little one arrives? Or do you have a child under one that you just wish would sleep better? Maybe you are confused about the conflicting information you are coming across and just wish someone would clear things up for you?
If you answered yes to any of these questions then this is the talk for you! Perfect for parents who are still expecting the arrival of their little one or who have a baby under 4 months but will still be beneficial for parents of older babies who are still struggling with sleep issues and confusion!
