Sleep & Other Baby Myths


We've all seen breastfeeding used as the scapegoat for many issues with our babies and children--how do we stay strong in the face of doubts, particularly when we're sleep-deprived? There are as many sleep philosophies and set-ups as there are babies. Come share ideas of what has worked for your family, struggles you face, and an open heart for commiseration. This week we will also talk about how to dispel common breastfeeding myths and misconceptions, particularly as they relate to sleep, while staying confident in our parenting choices.

We have several books in the LLL library you may want to check out, Dr. McKenna's "Sleeping with Your Baby: A Parent's Guide to Cosleeping, Whether You Do It Occasionally or Every Night, Do It Safely" and Dr. Sears's "Nighttime Parenting: How to Get Your Baby and Child to Sleep."
We're looking forward to hearing about your sleep triumphs and challenges, as well as your breastfeeding questions, concerns, and successes.
