How many hours of sleep does your toddler need each day? And how does that change as she graduates to preschool? Here you'll learn about your toddler's sleep schedule and find ideas for structuring resting hours.
Do your baby's sleep habits (or lack thereof) have you feeling like a zombie? Be patient. A full night's sleep is on its way. Learn when babies start sleeping through the night and what it means for your baby's physical and cognitive development.
Getting your baby to nap and sleep through the night is good for the entire family. The key to making it happen? Knowing the changes he's going through during his first year and what you can do to help him become a champion sleeper. Sweet dreams!
It's understandable if the term "walking zombie" describes you during your new mom days. As you recover from pregnancy and childbirth, you're nurturing an infant who wakes up several times a night feeling hungry (or wet or colicky or disoriented) and needs you to be awake too. Luckily, this is temporary. Once your baby can sleep through the night, you can return to a regular sleep schedule. But most infants won't for least seven to eight weeks, often longer. The good news: You can almost always sneak in sleep. These sleep-saving moves will show you how.
You are getting very sleepy...since your infant usually isn't. He's wide awake for most of the night! Life's a circus right now, but we'll show you how to settle down your sweetie and finagle extra zzz's for yourself.
