Baby Sleep Answers - Part Two! - with Dr. Michael Gradisar, PhD., C.Psych.
Friday January 27th, 2022
When your child sleeps well, you sleep well. Sleep changes as we age—from birth forwards!
Dr. Gradisar will start with a quick talk on baby sleep and cortisol levels, give an overview on what recent research has found about stress and what happens in infants' bodies and brains as they learn to sleep, and then answer audience questions on what to do and strategies to help you and your little one get better rest.
Free for anyone to attend. All we ask is that you tell a friend!
After the success of our first event with Dr. Gradisar, we're back for another! This one will focus on baby sleep & cortisol - crying, stress, and learning to sleep. We'll have plenty of time for questions, as usual.
Dr. Gradisar will start with an intro to baby sleep & cortisol levels, and offer evidence-based answers and strategies from recent baby sleep studies in 2020 and 2021.
We have space for plenty of audience questions on what to do, tips and strategies, and help you and your little one get better rest.
