Episode 116 – Breastfeeding and Sleep Training

There’s a common misconception among mothers, both old and new, that you breastfeeding and sleeping well are mutually exclusive. You can sleep well or you can nurse on demand, but you can’t do both.

I’ve worked hard to dispel that myth, but to be perfectly honest, I had a very hard time nursing my babies, and don’t consider myself to be the foremost authority on the subject.

That’s why I’m so glad to be joined today by Courtney Zentz, LLC and postpartum doula, who also happens to be a Certified Sleep Sense Consultant! Courtney has some really eye-opening insight into the facts and myths about breastfeeding, why many parents believe babies can’t sleep well and nurse well, and how to incorporate proper nutrition and healthy sleep habits into your family’s life.
