Sleep training is not your only option

After having several conversations around this topic yesterday, I felt like I had to put this out there.

Sleep (or the lack thereof) is a big, and controversial, topic in the world of parenting. Before even giving birth, we are bombarded with messages about how our babies or toddlers should be sleeping and then told the only solution is sleep training. What I define as sleep training is a non-responsive approach to sleep that doesn’t consider or account for how a child is coping with the strategy.

Yet when sleep training doesn’t feel right to us, or doesn’t work, we are left feeling like we either have to wait things out or live with it. The truth is sleep training is not inevitable and you CAN support your child’s sleep in a responsive and gentle way without sleep training. Having realistic expectations based on development and your child’s temperament in addition to optimizing your routines, environment, and daily rhythms can support sleep in a way that works with biology. And even when larger changes need to happen, there are responsive ways to move through the process.

Holistic sleep support that honors and respects both you AND your baby’s needs does exist. Check out the accounts below for insight, tools, and support related to baby and toddler sleep:
