Swellbeing Smart Sleep Event at Grow on June 22

Janeen Hayward of SwellBeing, a Chicago parenting resource, visited grow for an in-store discussion of smart infant sleep habits that can ensure healthy sleep for parents.

SwellBeing offers individual consultations, discussion groups and workshops on topics ranging from preparation to postpartum to parenting toddlers with the philosophy that parents’ well-being is crucial to child’s. Hayward used her background in clinical psychology and her most recent education as a mother of two girls to counsel guests on the importance of instilling healthy sleep habits in both infants and parents from birth, expounding on the effects of developmental stages and even feeding on sleep patterns.

Establishing “smart infant sleep” requires a certain regimen, says Hayward, but also a flexibility and an acceptance of the inevitable adjustments for a specific child in a specific stage. She explained that age is less important than cognitive ability when it comes to sleep.Hayward offered information and recommendations from the APA, but conveyed an open-mindedness to personal choices when it comes to sleeping environments for infants and toddlers.

grow offered 10% off all sleep-related items such as bassinets, cribs, mattresses, bedding and infant sacques to attendees of the event.
