7 Reasons Your Baby Isn’t Sleeping Well At Night

Baby not getting enough sleep at night? Or are you feeling the effects of sleep deprivation yourself? It can feel so daunting to try and pinpoint why sleep has escaped your home. If you have a newborn (baby is under 16 weeks old), I have lots of free resources for you to check out. And [...]

2 Year-Old Sleep Regression

I’ve spoken at length in the past about parents blaming their child’s sleep issues on “regressions.” Through my extensive experience, I have learned that there are only two “real” regressions. One at four months, and another one around 10-12 months. Outside of those two regressions, long term issues with a child’s sleep are almost always [...]

10-12 Month Sleep Regression (and Why it’s Not Time to Transition to 1 Nap)

Here at Baby Sleep Trainer we tend to shy away from using the term “regression.” That’s because I find families will look for any reason to explain why their child isn’t sleeping through the night. (For example, I often hear teething, ongoing and repeated sleep regressions, nightmares, etc.) Yet, the most obvious reason is that [...]

We live in a time where we have such a huge amount of information available to us 24/7. Sometimes, if [...]

The Four Month Sleep Regression

Ahhhhh, the four month sleep regression. Rare is the family that doesn’t experience some sort of disruption to their infant’s sleep patterns around the fourth month of life. Some experienced/well-read parents anxiously dread this impending “regression.” However, most new moms and dads are completely blindsided by their little one’s sleep suddenly taking a nosedive around [...]
