Earlier today I posted about my decision to not sleep train my 2 babies. It’s a decision I don’t regret and it’s been working just fine for my family, though I am lucky to have been at home with both babies while they wake 2-1000 times a night.
Sleep training is one of those things parents, moms especially, feel pressured to do and keep at even when it breaks hearts. It’s just as hard waking with the baby all night, but I would take it over listening to my baby scream every night (which my first did, all night every night for a week).
I decided I wasn’t going to let myself feel pressured. I was going to let my children decide when they were ready to fall asleep and soothe themselves back to sleep io their own. I don’t regret it.
If you have also decided to not sleep train, we would love to hear your stories!
Parental sleep is precious, but every child is different and I believe he or she will get there in their own time. Thoughts?
