GOOD MORNING and yes you are in the right place.
It happened! This blog has a new name, which means we can talk about it today and then never again, because I never ever hang on to things forever and replay them in my mind over and over again....
Baby gear baby gear! (baby products for sleep!)
I am obsessed with baby gear, let me just start right there with that. Even though, no, I do not technically have a baby anymore, wahhhh time please slow down.
I got a lot of questions and comments after my post on why I think sleep training is so important for mental health. Lots of people like sleep training for babies! Lots of people think sleep training is bad for babies!
And, mostly, LOTS of you had questions about how we sleep trained, the sleep training programs we liked the best (I read them all, it feels like) and what baby products for sleep we used, what products were wastes of time, etc....
These are my thoughts on sleep training. There are LOTS of opinions on whether or not sleep training works, is necessary, or is harmful. The science tells us that sleep is usually really, really good for parents and babies. How and when to sleep train depends on a variety of factors, and there are tons of great methods that can work for lots of families.
It happens with 90% of new clients that I see.
We work through how things have been going, how pregnancy and childbirth went, why and how they came to be sitting across from me, either in a gray chair, on a green couch, or through a screen, these days. They are probably nervous. Sometimes I'm nervous. Meeting new people can be nerve-wracking....
