Our friends at National Council for Adoption (NCFA) shared one of their many great documents this week. This one covers the topic of sleep--of which very few of us admit to getting enough. For parents, this can be a real issue and concern and even more so for parents of adopted children. If this is you, then be sure to read this article on Sleep & Adoption written by Julian Davies, MD.
There is so much great information on the topic in this article. From 'how much sleep does my child need?' (see table below), to special concerns for new adoptees, and tips to encourage better sleep.
