Sleep: Practical Strategies for Modern Parents

Infant sleep expectations and reality are a source of stress and anxiety for most
parents. The $28 billion dollar sleep industry in the United States has capitalized
on exhausted families’ desperate pursuit of solutions. Parents feel recruited into
partisan philosophy groups with polarizing labels such as “sleep trainers” versus
“attached families.” This lecture will give participants a tolerant and practical
approach to defining normal sleep in infancy and the longitudinal variations in the
first year of life. Feeding goals and family circumstances should frame the discussion
for sleep priorities in a household. Medical knowledge of growth and development
norms will guide the evidence presented.
