Taking a look at sleep training perspectives, it is widely assumed that you either
a) accept your fate as a sleepless human being, co-sleep or sleep with your baby on you and ride out the years that will be remembered as a blur. Or,
b) let your little one cry until they give in and fall asleep but grit your teeth through the guilt (or not if it doesn’t bother you).
However, it is not necessary to pick either one of these camps. There is a place in between where you can achieve better sleep for the whole family without any guilt. No fear or distressing cries. Meeting all your little one’s needs, maintaining and even building upon a secure attachment and loving bond.
In this episode, we look at the various perspectives, the facts and myths and the happy options that sit between these two extremes.
