What if sleep training doesn't work for my baby? 

I understand your worry as a parent, but rest assured that sleep training is a highly effective method for helping your baby learn to fall asleep on their own. I will always work hard to find the best way to help your baby learn to sleep without any type of 'cry it out' approach. With consistent and effective sleep training, your baby will learn to fall asleep comfortably and independently, helping them get the rest they need. I will be with you every step of the way to ensure that your baby's sleep training is successful.

Can I breastfeed while sleep training?

I understand that breastfeeding is an important part of parenting and I would not recommend stopping just because your baby is struggling to stay asleep. Instead, I would work with you to create a sleep plan that is tailored to your family's unique needs and situation. This could include looking at the environment that your baby is sleeping in, potential lifestyle changes you can make to help promote better sleep, and any other strategies that could be beneficial for your baby. I will always prioritise your family's preferences and ensure that you are comfortable with any decisions that are made.

If it is agreed that feeding your baby at night is no longer necessary, we will work together to gradually remove it from your baby's night time routine. This will help to keep stress levels low for both you and your baby as you adjust to the new routine.

Is Cry-it-out the only way to get your baby to sleep through the night? 

As a gentle sleep consultant, I can assure parents that I would never recommend a method that involves letting your child cry. All of my sleep techniques are gentle and responsive, designed to help your little one get the rest they need while also respecting their emotional needs.

It is important for parents and children to work together on developing positive sleep habits. My methods focus on creating a comfortable and calming environment that encourages your child to sleep naturally, without pressure or guilt. I will also guide you on setting a regular sleep schedule and providing plenty of opportunities for your child to get the rest they need.

Ultimately, the goal of sleep training is to help your child learn how to fall asleep and stay asleep on their own. With my gentle, responsive techniques, you can achieve this goal without putting your child through any physical or emotional stress.

Secure Attachment and Sleep Training Babies

Secure attachment is a key factor in ensuring a baby's healthy development. In order to establish a secure attachment style, parents must be able to consistently provide loving and responsive care. This includes comfort and reassurance when the baby is distressed, as well as remaining sensitive and attuned to the child's needs.

Sleep training is a popular method that many parents use to help their babies develop healthy sleep habits. All of my sleep training methods are gentle and supportive, allowing the baby to gradually learn to self-soothe and sleep independently without the use of cry it out.

Recent research has suggested that there are no long-term negative effects on children who are sleep trained in infancy. In fact, it is believed that sleep training may actually lead to better sleep habits and improved emotional regulation in the long run.

Therefore, parents should feel reassured that secure attachment and sleep training babies can go hand-in-hand. With a little bit of patience and a lot of love, they can help their babies become confident and independent sleepers who will grow up to be happy and healthy adults.
