Expectant parents are often inundated with advice—solicited or otherwise—about what life with a new baby will be like, and sleep is no exception. “Sleep when the baby sleeps,” “newborns sleep all day,” and “you’ll never get a good night’s sleep again” are just a few of the things you might hear. And yet very little of this advice actually helps you understand your new baby’s sleep habits or recognize how much of it is “normal” (or not). New parents have a lot of things on their minds as it is, and stressing about sleep doesn’t have to be one of them. That’s why we’re offering this FREE webinar on Coming Home from the Hospital: The First Weeks as a crash course in everything you need to know about the science of newborn sleep, what to expect and how to set your baby up for sleep success.
