This week on The Less Stressed Life Podcast, I talk to Carianna Gibbs, a Pediatric Sleep Consultant about how to get your little one sleeping. We are all vastly aware that good sleep is imperative for everything else in our busy lives. AND, when kids sleep good, parents have a fighting chance at good sleep! Carianna answers all your burning questions about what is normal or not, how to implement a good sleep plan, and what might stand in the way.  Carianna's no-nonsense approach has guided and helped so many to better sleep for their children. A must-listen for all those struggling!

Key Takeaways:

  • Sleep Stages- What's normal for each age group? Newborn to 5 years old
  • Newborn Phase is all about practice- finding out what works
  • 4-24 Months "Baby/ Toddler Phase" Time to make changes, teach good sleep habits. Be intentional to improve sleep
  • When should my child start to sleep through the night?
  • 4 month sleep regression- Is this really a thing?
  • 2-5 year-old Toddler Phase
  • Sleep regression myths
