“Are they sleeping thru the night?”
This is the age old question that is asked of new parents by family, friends, and healthcare providers alike. Up to 45% of mothers reported infant sleep problems over the age of 6 months. So what can you do about it? This is usually when the conversation turns to sleep training. How do you do it? Will it work? Is it ok to put my child (and myself) thru it? Will it do any long term damage to let them “cry it out”?
