Dr. Marc Weissbluth, leading expert on infant sleep who comes to 92Y annually, has developed The Weissbluth Method Infant Nap App for the iPhone with his son.
My father recognized that busy mothers may be distracted and might not put their baby down soon enough for a nap. He knew that if babies are kept up too long, they get a “second wind” and then they have difficulty napping well. One night, he was describing to me his idea for a “timing device” that would serve as a nap reminder-I thought, “That is so 20th century!” . I explained to him that we were in the 21st century and that there was something called “iPhone Apps.” Together, we created the, “WEISSBLUTH METHOD INFANT NAP APP” which should help parents nap their babies during their first year. -Daniel Weissbluth, MD
