Sleep Issues for a 6 Week Old Baby

Sleep Issues for a 6 Week Old Baby

The wealth of knowledge from your birth and postpartum doulas is almost limitless. This is a copy of a group text string between a client and her two doulas. Sidebar - yep, two. Any time you hire doulas from Tulsa Family Doulas, you get two. Twice the support, twice the experience, twice the information. These doulas immediately go on call for you. We don't wait until 36 or 38 weeks to go on call. Whomever is on call is the doula that attends your birth and then comes back to your home for the two postpartum visits including 4 hours of complimentary postpartum doula support. Sounds lovely doesn't it? It really is.

Okay, back to the reason for this blog - 6 week old babies, 6 week old mamas and sleeeeeeep.

The car seat isn't a safe option for somewhere place a baby to sleep. 

This video isn't just about day care workers, but serves as a reminder for postpartum doulas, aunts, grandparents, older siblings and anyone who has the opportunity to be the one watching over the littles while they sleep.
