Raising A Good Sleeper
A workshop with Dr. Janet K. Kennedy, PhD,
Author of The Good Sleeper and founder of NYC Sleep Doctor
When babies sleep well, so does the whole family.
Starting early will allow your child to grow into a good sleeper, avoiding many of the heartaches and struggles of sleep training later on. This class teaches the fundamentals of raising a good sleeper from birth through age 2.
You will learn:
• The basics of infant sleep patterns
• How to make sure your child is well rested
• Soothing techniques for fussy babies
• How to help your baby learn to put herself to sleep
• How to teach your baby to sleep through the night
• …and how to keep the whole family well rested!
