Alternatives to Crying it Out

The traditional “Cry-it-out” approach to getting your little one to sleep may be effective, but for many parents, it’s just not something they’re comfortable with.

On the other hand, constantly rocking, shushing, or nursing your baby to sleep every time they wake up can create associations that make it harder for baby to fall asleep independently and can result in frequent nighttime wake-ups.

Luckily, there are several options in between these two far ends of the sleep training spectrum. I’ll tell you all about them and help you evaluate which one is right for your family in today’s video.
