In this episode, we hear from Dr. Lynelle Schneeberg, sleep psychologist and assistant professor of clinical psychiatry at Yale School of Medicine. Dr. Schneeberg works with adults who suffer from sleeping disorders and helps educate and coach guardians of children who struggle with sleep.
Today’s conversation is focused on helping babies and children to have better sleep health. Dr. Schneeberg tells us that the most common sleep challenge for children is behavioral insomnia, which may be caused by learned methods of falling asleep—methods that aren’t necessarily ideal.
