Can You Help Your Breastfed Baby Sleep Better?

This is a sponsored post for the The Baby Sleep Site. All opinions are my own.

If there is one question I receive the most at my blog from all new parents, and especially mothers, it is how can I help my breastfed baby sleep better. I have received so many questions about baby sleep and breastfeeding, and to be honest, I am not a sleep expert. I pretty much was winging it with all of my babies.

Even after three babies, I have not always had a sleep approach figured out. I did my best and followed my instincts, and we all turned out okay.

There were still many sleepless nights where I felt desperate, exhausted, and not sure what to do to help us all get better sleep.

All three of my babies were unique when it came to baby sleep as well. I would think I had it figured out with one baby, and the next one would throw me for a loop.

The biggest shock to my system when it came to dealing with my baby's sleep, and my lack of sleep, was definitely with my first baby girl. Since I was a new mother there was a lot of searching and reading online to get ideas on how to improve our sleep.

One website I spent a lot of time on, and where I found a lot of helpful sleep information is The Baby Sleep Site. I would spend hours pouring over their blog posts when my first baby was little.

As a breastfeeding mother I never wanted to do anything to jeopardize our breastfeeding relationship. I never felt like methods such as cry it out, or formal sleep training was for me. But, The Baby Sleep Site offers plenty of helpful sleep information if you would like a gentle approach to helping your breastfed baby sleep better.

If you look at the FAQ section on their website you will see they will not recommend cry it out if that approach is not for you. In fact most of their clients do not use these techniques.

They are also breastfeeding friendly, and have lactation consultants on their team who can help with anything related to breastfeeding and sleep.

A little more about The Baby Sleep site:
