The Kids Sleep Show helps tired parents to understand the root of their child's' sleep challenges from birth through school-aged. Most children don't get adequate sleep and in this fun and lighthearted show, Courtney Zentz, a nationally ranked Pediatric Sleep Specialist breaks down the root of your struggles and shares steps to go from a sleepy mess to sleep success in just a few short days.
In this podcast, I discuss when the right age is to drop a nap, how to tell it’s time, and when you might need to keep or re-add that nap in, to maintain balance in your toddlers day.?
Join Courtney as she interview Dr. Katie Sherer as we discuss the importance of nutrition postpartum, the microbiome and the impact a diet can have on your hormones, mental clarity, sleep and digestive balance as adults and in our children.
As adults, we sleep with pillows and blankets, but for children, the guidelines are different, as are their sleep preferences. In today’s episode, we discuss when it makes sense to introduce them and also, hacks for babies under 12 months, who can’t use them from a safe sleep standpoint, but still may love the comfort of soft sheets or a wearable blanket.
Sleep regressions alone can be a challenge, then add teething into the mix and many parents can feel unsure as to the real reason their kid is not sleeping through the night. Today, we review how to assess if the wakings are teething related or perhaps, your little one has built up a small habit that you need to address.
Can you Co-Sleep and Sleep Train? On this episode, Courtney talks all about that for infants and toddlers, what that means for your family sleep dynamic and the steps to take if you are ready to reclaim your bed sans kid.
