Celebrating our third annual Baby Sleep Day and over 2 years of being the top pediatric sleep resource for families around the world.
In addition to initiating Baby Sleep Day, members of the PSC launched their free baby sleep website, www.babysleep.com, in 2016. With over half a million visits from over 190 countries, babysleep.com has become a critical resource for families. Babysleep.com offers advice from the world’s most renowned pediatric sleep experts for over 300 sleep questions asked by families.
For the third consecutive year, families will be able to ask members of the PSC questions about their young child’s sleep. The question and answer event celebrating Baby Sleep Day will take place via Facebook (facebook.com/pedsleep). Beginning in Australia and Asia, and moving through Europe and North America, experts will answer questions from around the globe, for the entirety of Baby Sleep Day.
The site also provides a multitude of helpful tools and tips for parents and practitioners around the world, including a search tool so families can find accredited pediatric sleep centers. In addition to babysleep.com resources, over 500 family sleep questions were answered during the first two Baby Sleep Day Facebook events.
According to Dr. Jodi Mindell, “Sleep is an important concern for families. Baby Sleep Day and resources on babysleep.com have met the sleep needs of thousands of families from all over the world. Our goal is to continue to provide free evidence-based resources that are accessible to all families.”
The question and answer event on Facebook.com/pedsleep will do just that on March 1, 2019.
