Dr. Natalie Barnett is featured on Romper.com discussing sleeping through the night.
On the topic of self-soothing, Dr. Natalie Barnett, pediatric Sleep Expert at Nanit, tells Romper that after about three months, the most important thing a parent can do to lengthen nighttime sleep is to have your baby fall asleep by themselves at the beginning of the night. “What your baby needs to fall asleep at the beginning of the night will be what they need to fall back to sleep when they wake during the night,” she explains. “Encouraging your baby to fall asleep by themselves will help them go longer through the night without a feed so that we can gradually and naturally cut down those night feeds with little or no crying involved.”
