Where do you start? Who do you trust?
When our parents were raising us, the opposite was the problem. My mom said you were told to put your big girl panties on, suck it up, struggle through and do your best. There was very limited information with respect to parenting, especially when it came to sleep.
Is this a new problem? No. If you go back to Victorian times, nurses were giving a form of opium (laudanum) to help babies sleep. Sounds crazy, but it’s true!
the #1 parenting problem
Sleep happens to be the number one parenting problem. When you are a new parent, the dialogue goes something like this… How old is your baby? What is their name? Are they sleeping through the night?
As a parent, you cannot help but be confused. Dr. William Sears, is a renowned Doctor who promotes co-sleeping for good sleep and healthy attachment. On the other side of the spectrum Dr. Marc Weissbluth, another renowned Doctor, promotes the exact opposite. He recommends that babies should be left alone to cry it out in order to sleep well. His method is also known as extinction.
Then, when you investigate further, there are hundreds of books and do it yourself options available for purchase. The most popular ones today are The No-Cry Sleep Solution by Elizabeth Pantley, The Baby Whisperer by Tracy Hogg and Melinda Blau, Solve Your Child’s Sleep Problems by Dr. Richard Ferber, and Healthy Sleep Habits, Healthy Child by Dr. Marc Weissbluth.
