Are There Any "Good" Sleep Props?

If you have watched my videos before, you’re probably familiar with the term, “Sleep props.” I use it to describe anything a baby relies on in order to get to sleep, such as rocking, feeding, sucking on a pacifier, car rides, and so on.

You also probably know that I suggest eliminating sleep props from your little one’s bedtime routine so they can learn to fall asleep independently. But does that mean that there is no such thing as a “good” sleep prop?

Today, I’ll talk a little about how I define a sleep prop, why I advise against them, and where you might find a little loophole in the rules in order to allow your little one a nighttime friend in the crib.
