Setting Your Baby's Sleep Schedule when Starting Solids with @babysleepdr Aubrie DeBear, PsyD

  • Why it's ideal to wait until your baby is closer to 6 months to start a sleep training program (...and how that overlaps with the exact time when you're starting solid foods too!)
  • How the concept of “sleeping through the night” is a misconception. We as adults don't even sleep through the night...but when your baby does wake up, how you can help baby independently fall BACK to sleep so they don't need you to make this happen!

LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE

Should your baby be sleeping through the night before you start solid foods? And how does baby’s sleep schedule adjust when you begin feeding real food? Sleep is SO important for babies (...and by extension, their parents!) but what comes first: setting your baby’s sleep schedule or starting the transition to solid foods?

In this episode I’m joined by Aubrie DeBear from @babysleepdr. Aubrie is a sleep consultant with a doctorate in psychology and she’s answering all of your questions about setting your baby’s sleep schedule when making the transition to solid foods. There are so many myths about babies sleeping and starting solids and Aubrie is going to help put them to rest!

If you’ve ever wondered about how long to wait after feeding your baby before putting your baby to bed or what types of foods to avoid later in the day (or does it really matter), Aubrie is the sleep consultant you need in your life!
