Babies’ sleep habits are initially confounding. No small wonder; it’s hard to get on a proper sleep schedule after nine months of darkness. It’s parents jobs to help and the key to establishing healthy sleep habits in babies is getting into a routine early to stop sleep problems from occurring before they develop. But when parents feel sleep deprived themselves, it can be hard for them to notice signs of sleep deprivation in a newborns, figure out sleep training schedules, or buy the right sleep aids.
That’s why Fatherly made some chamomile tea and built this guide to sleep. We talked to behavior experts, pediatricians, sleep researchers, and parents about sleep training, sleep regression, co-sleeping, sleep disorders, nightmares, and more — so you and your baby can catch those evasive Zzzzs.
