As Daylight Savings kicked off Sleep Awareness Week, pip & grow announced the next phase of its mission to provide families with safe, restful sleep. The Mindful Method for Sleep program was developed by infant sleep, infant health and health communication experts to provide two-data drive courses to use mindfulness to calm parents and caregivers. A relaxed parent reduces baby’s stress and improves sleep.
“Babies are wired to wake up every couple of hours when they’re born, but there are things that parents can do to encourage baby to sleep in longer stretches,” said Amber Kroeker, MPH, Infant Safety Expert, and Co-Founder, pip & grow. “One of the most important things for parents is to remain calm and be mindful that baby can sense your anxiety and stress. As tough as it is, especially when you’re exhausted, parents must create a consistent, calm environment for baby if they hope to improve sleep for the whole family.”
Hosted by Liz Harden, MPH, pip & grow’s Mindful Method for Sleep program consists of two courses, Stellar Sleep 101 and Stellar Sleep 102. The first course sets your infant up for sleep success, providing valuable data-driven, educational insights for parents and caregivers. The second course provides parents with two options to mindfully teach your child to sleep independently based on yours and your baby’s unique needs.
“We are thrilled to introduce pip & grow fans and tired parents alike to our newest offering, the Mindful Method for Sleep,” said Kate Compton Barr, Co-Founder and CEO, pip & grow. “As parents ourselves, we know how challenging it can be to make any meaningful changes when you’re sleep-deprived and questioning your abilities as a parent. We created this course to provide parents with simple solutions that can help calm their anxieties, pay attention to their own nervous systems, and create those pro-sleep vibes in their babies.”
The Mindful Method for Sleep retails for $87 per course or $150 for the duo and is available on pip & grow’s website. Providers can also purchase the courses for customers, patients and employees by emailing pip & grow directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
