I wanted to list every helpful resource I could think of that might be of help to you parents out there. A majority of what I’ve learned are from the following resources below:
American Academy of Pediatrics – https://www.aap.org
The American Academy of Pediatrics is an organization of pediatricians who are “committed to the optimal physical, mental, and social health and well-being for all infants, children, adolescents, and young adults.”
You can read more about them and more at https://www.aap.org/en-us/about-the-aap/Pages/About-the-AAP.aspx
The AAP is an invaluable resource to all parents. It offers research, publishing, journals, webinars, clinical support and much more.
Healthy Children – https://www.HealthyChildren.org
Tailored to parents like you and me! Tons and tons of useful information about parenting – from prenatal all the way to young adult.
I learned so much when I was going through the website. You can even use the search bar at the top of the website to search whatever you’re trying to find info on.
This is a great website because it has in-depth information about babies and gives you very informative summaries and helpful things to know. From breastfeeding and diapers, to nutrition and sleep, there’s loads of great information for every parent.
Sleep Foundation – https://www.sleepfoundation.org/articles/children-and-sleep
Great info on what to generally expect for the length of time children and babies should be sleeping for. I found a lot of helpful information here regarding things like REM/NREM, specific amounts of sleep needed by age such as how much sleep for a newborn baby, tips on how to make your baby sleep, and much more.
There’s seemingly limitless information about babies and their sleep. Just make sure that wherever you get your information from is an accurate source. As parents, we need to be skeptical of what we read for the well-being and safety of our own children.
Any other parents have any helpful resources they used that they’d like to recommend? Let me know!
