When I told my pediatrician that I had already sleep trained my 3-month-old daughter, I swear she almost speed dialed CPS. There’s no doubt, sleep training is a controversial topic. Some mamas swear by it, others avoid it at all cost. If you’re reading about sleep training, chances are, you either have a baby coming and you’re worried about the sleepless nights to come, or you’re already completely exhausted because your baby won’t sleep.
If that’s the case, I have great news: sleep training is not some scary thing!
In this post, I’ll tell you everything you need to know about baby sleep training: when to start, what the different sleep training methods are, and how to use the best sleep training method for your baby.
Sleep deprivation shouldn’t be the marker of new motherhood, Mama. So, let’s get right to it!
