Steps to stop co-sleeping by Craig Canapari, M.D.

Sleep- we all could use a bit more than we actually get.  I often wonder how my life would change if I could sleep soundly every night.  And as a result of my sleep issues, I vowed that as a parent I would do anything I could to help my children learn to be good sleepers.

We did a bit of co-sleeping in the early days out of desperation.  But as a practice, we knew that was not going to help any of us.  A friend and colleague of mine, Dr. Craig Canapari, wrote this great article about ending the cycle of co-sleeping.  He has some excellent advice about sleep hygiene and concerns.  Check out his website!

Joyeux Parenting

I am the proud mother of two beautiful children and have lived in Boston for most of my life. I have over twenty years of experience as a Child Development Specialist working with new families, pediatricians at Mass General Hospital, and Early Intervention. I have a wealth of knowledge and expertise regarding the challenges related to breastfeeding, behavior management, picky eaters, discipline, sleep, and development. I love being a wife and mother and sharing my experiences-the good, the bad, and the ugly. I am constantly learning about new evidence based information as it relates to parenting. Most importantly, I think it is crucial to recognize that we all make mistakes and learn from them. I am a firm believer that humor is essential as you navigate the world. Parenting should be full of joy and that is why I started my business Joyeux Parenting. Thank you for allowing me to share my experiences with you.
