Event Description


Understanding and Supporting Infant Sleep Workshop

Teresa Stewart, MS, MPH, instructor

During this session, participants will gain an understanding of how biology, environment and an infant’s stage of development can impact sleep. Discussion will include: setting realistic sleep expectations for infants ages 4-15 months old; creating positive sleep associations and introducing a bedtime routine; establishing a nap schedule; how and when to wean off night-feedings; ways to encourage longer stretches of sleep; and how to help an infant nap for other caregivers and in other locations. An overview of popular sleep strategies will be provided and plenty of time will be devoted to answering questions. This workshop will provide guidance and reassurance for parents who are wondering, “How can I help my baby sleep better?”


For:  Parents and caregivers of infants ages 4-15 months old.
