Newborn sleep training is a controversial topic that I’m often asked about by mums with many differing opinions. This week I was excited to speak with Catherine Thompson, an expert in the area.

Catherine is a Sydney based baby sleep consultant and we discussed baby’s sleep patterns over the first four months.

You’ll hear suggestions including:-

  • Accepting that every baby is unique and the importance of getting to know their temperament and cues.
  • Ensuring that you have support systems in place which may include family, midwives and child nurses.
  • The importance of looking after yourself so you can take care of your baby.
