I have been trying to get an episode recorded with paediatrician Dr Harvey Karp for months and thanks to busy schedules, we’ve kept missing each other. Anyway, we’ve finally managed to get together for this fantastic podcast episode on baby sleep.
Dr Harvey Karp covers everything to do with baby sleep, sleeping techniques and what to expect from your newborn in those first few weeks. We address sleep exhaustion and when it’s time to introduce a routine for baby. There’s so much by the way of genius tips and advice, not just for first-time parents, but second-time parents too. We also chatted about the most common mistakes new parents make, as well as how best to transition your baby into their cot.
Dr Karp also talks in-depth about his genius SNOO smart sleeper. This piece of baby kit is almost worth having another baby for. He is also the creator of the SNOO Smart Sleeper, a new class of responsive infant bed that has won over 20 top international honours, and is definitely worth a look.
