Is There a Market for an Adult SNOO?

Sleep advice for babies and their parents.
A roundup of new guidance and stories from NYT Parenting.
Golden Cosmos

This week, we have two articles inspired by baby sleep (or lack thereof). One, a mini-guide to sleep training options from Dr. Craig Canapari, director of the Yale Pediatric Sleep Center. The other is a goofy piece (also featuring Dr. Canapari's advice) that I wrote about whether baby sleep tricks can help grown-ups, too, in which I pondered: Is there a market for an adult SNOO?

Also new to NYT Parenting: Melinda Wenner Moyer looked into a new study from Hong Kong, which showed that when children returned to classrooms after their coronavirus-related shutdown, cases of the common cold among schoolkids surged. Another study, from the United Kingdom, showed that cold viruses spiked in parents two weeks after children returned to school there. A caveat here is that because of Covid, people may be more attuned to "every cough, sniffle and runny nose," as Melinda notes, so that could partially explain the spike.

Read about some delicious-sounding cross-cultural food traditions that help nourish new moms. Learn how to keep your family safe during an extreme weather event, like the one Texas just experienced. Make sure you're keeping hand sanitizer stored safely and out of grabby, curious little paws.

Finally, we'd love your input for two upcoming projects. If you are a teen parent, we want to hear about your experience during the pandemic. Tell us about it here.

The New York Times for Kids is working on a special project for your elementary schoolers. Throughout the spring, the Kids team is looking for feedback from 8- to 11-year-olds on a new app. Selected participants will spend an hour chatting over Zoom with someone from The Times, and earn a $50 gift certificate for their input. If your child is interested, please fill out this short survey.

Thanks for reading!

Tiny Victories

Parenting can be a grind. Let's celebrate the tiny victories.

Our two grandchildren, who are 2 and 4, have not entered our house since Covid struck, but they stop by with our son every week for an outdoor visit. My husband and I purchased online little toys and figurines, and we hide a few each week in the fig tree in our front yard for them to find. We call it the "Surprise Tree." — Bridget Poizner, San Diego
