March 9th: Better Sleep for ALL!

The Holistic Guide to Better Sleep for Infants and Toddlers: Much of our parenting advice around sleep relies on outdated ideas about how babies and toddlers should act and sleep, rather than coming from what we know is biologically normal. The emphasis is on controlling behavior, disconnection, and pushing independence-something at odds with many parents’ instincts.

There’s a better way! You can improve sleep for your entire family while focusing on connection and what is biologically normal. Come learn how to understand and support sleep holistically and discover calming, evidence-based information to build your confidence around nighttime parenting and improving sleep for your family.

Kim Hawley, MA, MPH is a Holistic Sleep Consultant and Lactation Counselor, as well as the owner of Intuitive Parenting. Kim is passionate about helping parents confidently navigate nighttime parenting and family sleep using evidenced-based information and parental intuition. Her specialty is virtual, gentle, attachment-based sleep support for breastfeeding families. Kim lives in Capitol Hill, Washington DC with her husband, her two children, and a few animals, including her guide dog. She loves to run, read a good book, eat delicious food, and enjoy a glass of wine or cup of coffee.

Kim will be presenting at 10:45am after Stroller Strides at Wheaton Mall.
