I have taught many parents around the world, how to pass on to their children the skill of sleep.

How Much Sleep Does A Baby Need Daily?This week’s question comes from Tracey and she writes:

“What is a normal amount of time to have a baby awake during the day so that they sleep better at night? My baby is two months old.”

Will Putting Cereal In My Babys Bottle help Her Sleep“Cereal in a bottle will help baby to sleep better!

This week’s question comes from Angel. She writes:

He plays all day and into the evening, and doesn’’t usually go to sleep until midnight. Then wakes up about two-ish — sometimes he’’ll settle and sometimes he doesn’’t.
