Sleep Discussion Guide

Understanding Infant Sleep in the First Year: A guide to inform conversations with expectant and new parents. Photo of a cute baby sleeping.
Establishing a sleep routine for a baby is a process that may change many times as the baby grows and their needs change - which is an important aspect of development for parents to understand. IEMHP has clear points to guide the discussion.
As a follow up to an IEMHP Rounds presentation with Dr. Robyn Stremler (see video below), it became very clear that there was a need for clear and consistent messaging for practitioners to use with families when discussing the topic of sleep - for both the parents and baby.

An ad hoc committee was struck and we are pleased to share this Discussion Guide for Practitioners to clarify what science tells us about sleep during the early years and how we can support families during this time.
