A popular sleep training schedule we hear about often is the ‘EASY’ method – baby eats, has an activity, sleeps, you get some you-time. Despite it’s name, I hear from countless parents about how stressful this method is! Their babies fall asleep at the breast each time they feed and they worry incessantly (and unnecessarily!) that they are creating bad habits.

10 Sleep Myths That Leave Parents Feeling Lost — Kaitlin Klimmer - Respectful Parenting

I often speak about helping mothers, parents, and caregivers find the way back to their intuition. I also often receive messages from parents whom have tried separation-based sleep training, and feel like they have failed because it didn’t work in any, or all of the ways it was promised and sold.

We all go through different phases of sleep, some lighter than others, and as we transition from one sleep phase to another we often come into partial arousal without even realizing it. Since babies are light sleepers (again, we want this to be the case), when they sleep next to their mothers, they often end up getting fully aroused by our partial arousal, and wake up for a feed.

Many sleep coaches promise they can get your baby to sleep through the night, but is it even a reasonable goal? Could it be harmful? Child Sleep, Kids Sleep, Baby Sleep, Safe Co Sleeping, Sleeping Alone, 20 Month Old, Stages Of Sleep, Sleeping Through The Night, Postpartum Depression

Sleeping Through the Night

Many sleep coaches promise they can get your baby to sleep through the night, but is it even a reasonable goal? Could it be harmful?

Sleep-deprived parents, out of desperation and sheer exhaustion, end up sleeping with their infants without knowing about how to do it safely. Couch sleeping and chest sleeping are never safe. But parents do this all the time because they don’t know how to get more sleep safely.

And in fact, forty to sixty percent of mothers will spend some point during the night bed-sharing (McKenna) even if they swore they never would. The truth is that most mothers do not intend to bed-share but many, more than 50%, inevitably do, simply because they are absolutely exhausted in the middle of the night and unable to do much other than tend to the baby and get sleep however and wherever they can.

Bed-sharing is a potentially life saving approach as it gives babies practice arousing themselves, which is a defence mechanism against sleep apnea and SIDS. It’s ironic that what popular culture has blamed for the SIDS is actually the antidote for it!! Safe bedsharing and co sleeping reduces SIDS.
