Episode 8 - Is Sleep Training HARMFUL? with Doctor Funke Afolabi-Brown

Sleep training gets a BAD WRAP! We all hear about it through mother’s groups, we read it online and we are now viewing it all over social media platforms. BUT today we are putting a STOP to the fear mongering that parents are experiencing every single day and giving you the ACTUAL science and facts behind it. 

We are SO excited to introduce you to Dr. Funke Afolabi-Brown, she is a board-certified sleep physician and the founder of Restful Sleep MD. Dr Brown helps women and their children prioritise sleep, achieve optimal health, thrive, and live to their fullest potential.

As a busy physician and mum of two, Funke understands the impact of sleep deprivation on our mental, physical, and emotional health and has made it her mission to help others make sleep a priority. 


As Funke says, “sleep is something we do, it's a natural process, and every organism, every animal, every human sleeps. It's not just luxury. It's a biological necessity.” 


If you’ve been unsure about sleep training or on the wrong side of TikTok and are afraid about potential impacts this episode is full of scientific research and studies to give you the information you need to make the right choice for your family. 


You’ll hear:

✨Whether sleep training is damaging or affects your ATTACHMENT with bub
