Sleeping and Breastfed Babies: What’s Normal and What’s Not

How frequently should breastfed babies eat, and how long should they should sleep? By now, you’ve heard friends, family, doctors, and others spouting advice. Even book authors are giving conflicting advice. Understandably, you no longer know what to believe. Maybe you need to encourage your baby to sleep for longer stretches? Maybe your own sleep would be better if she would sleep longer, or at least sleep in a different room? Or maybe just switch to formula so your baby will sleep longer? And how about that recently-published study that made news headlines touting how 3-month old babies sleep better if they are fed solids? That’s a loaded question!
Join Marie and her guest, author and professor, Dr. Amy Brown, as they take you on a whirlwind tour of what’s normal, and what’s not. From a developmental, evolutionary, and cultural standpoint, you’ll begin to re-frame your ideas of what’s normal and what’s not, and how to do nighttime parenting.
