Baby sleep news November 15, 2016

Baby Sleep News is intended to provide valuable information about infant development and care to parents like you. Our goal for the newsletter is to offer information that is interesting and worthwhile so that you will want to share it, information that you feel every parent would want to know. If we succeed in this, then you and other parents will tell others about the newsletter. This will motivate more people to enroll in the study while providing a reliable parenting resource.                                                               

We want your feedback. If you do not find our newsletter articles to be of value to you then we need to know that and we need to know why - send an email to [email protected]. We also want to know, of course, if we do something right, so please post comments on our facebook page (facebook.com/babysleepNYU) about articles that you find useful and why. Finally, please let us know if there are topics that you'd like to have us cover. Let us know the biggest parenting problems you face, and we'll do the research to find out if science can come to the rescue.

Sleep is underrated. This is somewhat puzzling. What would you pay for a pill that makes you feel better, be more productive, more creative, less likely to get Alzheimer’s and perhaps even lose some weight?
