Episode 118 – Childhood Sleep Challenges

After all my years as a pediatric sleep expert, you might think I’d get a little fatigued talking about the subject, but the truth is, there’s never been a more exciting time to be in this line of work. There’s a prominent new focus on the value and health benefits of sleep, and with it comes a lot of research and findings, which brings a lot of exciting new conversations. That’s why I’m so pleased to be speaking today with Dr. Mary Wilde. A board-certified pediatrician, author, mother of eight (wow!) and the founder of Imagine Pediatrics Behavioral Health & Wellness, Dr. Mary has a unique and innovative approach to child wellness. On today’s show, we’re discussing some of the sleep challenges facing kids today and exchanging some thoughts on how current research has reshaped our approach to dealing with them.
