You should probably check out this article from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. It’s written by a guy named Jason West, who is also a cardiologist and he has developed an app that helps people with serious sleep disorders. The app is called Zeo and it monitors your sleep patterns – every night – to make sure you aren’t getting too little or too much sleep
I found out about this app after my second postpartum summer when I had a bad case of insomnia. The first thing I did was buy myself a hypnotherapy CD called “Sleep Revolution” which was really helpful because it got me back into the rhythm of sleeping without medication but eventually I tired of taking pills so I decided to try to save money on doctors visits by going the natural route again…and boy am I glad!
