The Pediatric Sleep Council, a Philadelphia-based organization that provides evidence-based information on baby and toddler sleep, has launched BabySleep.com, a free resource for parents to receive credible advice for helping their babies sleep better.
The council has produced advice videos with pediatric sleep experts, as well as up-to-date news and research, and tips, tricks and tools to help children and their families get the sleep they need.
“Sleep affects every aspect of a baby’s as well as a family’s well-being, including mood, learning and health. Yet, approximately one-third of parents report their child has a sleep problem. We created BabySleep.com to bring awareness to this common problem and provide education and resources to help,” says Jodi Mindell, professor of psychology at St. Joseph’s University, associate director of the Sleep Center at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and chair of the Pediatric Sleep Council.
Through BabySleep.com, the Pediatric Sleep Council addresses parents’ most common problems, such as how to get a baby to sleep through the night, how to transition a toddler to a bed or how to solve nap problems. Although the website is geared toward infants and toddlers, it also includes information for families with older children.
The website also includes information about sleep, from birth to 36 months; news and research; recommended books and tools; and a searchable database of accredited pediatric sleep centers.
