Recently the AAP released the results of a new study that indicated many parents are not following safe sleep guidelines. Of course, I have a few thoughts on this! Read the study HERE: My advice? Make the sleep guidelines more realistic! If parents aren't listening, it means they are desperate for sleep and the recommendations are falling short without the "village" we once had.
