The history of sleep, sleep hygiene, a Halloween debacle, twisting ticks, shrink-wrapped sweet potatoes and MTM In this episode, Rob and Matt delve back into the issues of infant sleep. But first, we cover the basics. What is sleep? Why do we need it? How has it, and our concepts of it, changed over the course of history? How and why did artificial light change things forever?

We also review 4 common methods to get those little buggers to cooperate with their exhausted parents, and discuss some of the stumbling blocks parents may trip over on their way to a decent night’s sleep. Night terrors, nightmares, and headbangers (oh my!). We share a model for taking a good sleep history, and pay tribute to the iconic Mary Tyler Moore.
