It is never too early to read an excellent book on sleep. In fact, I recommend that expectant parents read some books on infant sleep before their baby is even born. This gives parents a chance to discuss their attitudes about sleep and get on the same page before the going gets tough! There are a ton of books out there about sleep. As a behavioral psychologist and a new mom, my favorite (hands down), is by Dr. Jodi Mindell. It is called Sleeping Through the Night (visit our Favorite Things page to purchase). If you are going to spend your precious new mom moments reading one book on infant and child sleep, give this one a go! Also, check out the Calm Mom’s favorite sleep tips for babies and new moms.
