Sleep Training for Babies

Sleep Training for Babies

Postby David M. Selvig » October 1st, 2020, 11:44 am

Now that we know that we can’t force or train a baby to sleep, what can we do as parents to support our babies to sleep? Really key to having your baby know and learn when to fall asleep is making sure that your baby is in a relaxed and calm state, that they are not in a state of stress, and that they are not in fight or flight (which can happen when left to cry in a dark room alone). If they are not in this state of stress, they will be able to fall asleep and remain asleep. This is really important because we really need to look at our day, to figure out whether we have created an environment that is conducive to sleep. You may want to ask yourself the following questions if your baby is struggling to sleep:
Have we given them enough sensory stimulation? Are we providing them with a variety of sensations?
