    Hi Dr. Weissbluth! I was recently certified as a pediatric sleep consultant through the Family Sleep Institute and am looking for some research supporting the scientific basis behind the fact that using biological sleep times (ie, putting a child down for their first nap between 8:30-9:00 am and their second nap between noon-1:00 pm) as opposed to wake windows will result in more restorative sleep. If you can point me towards any resources, that would be much appreciated. Also, is there a way to access the first 13 posts on your blog? I can only see posts 14-21 and when I try to log in, WordPress just asks me to create my own website. Thanks so much!

      Thank you! Can you point me towards any peer-reviewed journal articles supporting the use of biological sleep times as opposed to wake windows? I’d love to have something to point clients to.

  2. Focus on the event (drowsy signs in your child) or the interval between the events (clock time awake). Either will help your child fall asleep when the brain output shifts into sleep mode. The natural variation of sleep durations suggests to me that it is more helpful to watch your child than rigidly watch a clock.
