debunking newborn sleep myths

There are so many myths around there surrounding newborn sleep.  In this episode I explore 6 different myths, what the truth is and why.


Myth #1: “Formula-fed babies sleep longer than breastfed babies.”

Myth #2: “You should never wake a sleeping baby.”

Myth #3: “Breastfeeding comes naturally.”

Myth #4: “Some babies just don’t like being swaddled.”

Myth #5: “Babies can sleep 12 hours by 12 weeks.”

Myth 6: “A baby may choke on their spit up if they’re sleeping on her back.”


Have another myth you’d like me to explore?  Send an email and I’d be happy to include it in a future episode.
