Want A Chance To Chat Live With Nicole?

Join us at 2 p.m. EST on Wednesday, February 4th for a special Facebook chat!

Facebook Chat With Nicole

Have you ever wished you could chat with Nicole and ask her a specific sleep-related question? Maybe you have one or two quick questions that are stumping you, and that you’d LOVE to get Nicole’s take on?

Well, you’re in luck, because on Wednesday, February 4th, we’re hosting a special Facebook chat that will allow you to do just that! From 2 – 3 p.m., we invite you to post your sleep questions on our Facebook wall, and Nicole herself will be answering them for you. Ask Nicole about sleep training, night weaning, naps, swaddling, scheduling, cosleeping…and anything else you may be struggling with! Consider this little chat our early Valentine’s gift to you. ;)

And don’t forget to spread the “sleep help” love, and invite your friends to this event! Nicole is sincerely hoping to help as many people as she can through this chat, so if you know friends or family members who are struggling with sleep, please – invite them to attend! Or maybe you know a few new moms who would benefit greatly from Nicole’s wisdom – invite them along, too! You can click here to join the event, and get updates and reminders.

Get those questions ready, and we’ll see you on Wednesday, February 4th at 2 p.m. EST!

*Remember that Nicole will have limited time during the chat, so you’ll want to stick with straightforward, specific questions. Additionally, if you can’t see Nicole’s responses immediately, try refreshing your browser periodically, so that you can see the most current questions and answers.

Finally, keep in mind that this chat isn’t designed to replace one-on-one work with a sleep consultant – if you have loads of pressing sleep concerns, then you may want to pick up a sleep consultation package, and work directly with a trained consultant.

The Co-Sleeping Campaign That Backfired Completely

CoSleeping Campaign Backfired

To co-sleep, or not to co-sleep…that’s a hot, debatable topic these days! Of course, we work with families all over the world, who sleep in a variety of arrangements, so we pass no judgment. We make it our priority to respect every parent’s personal philosophies and goals.

But we also make it a priority to emphasize the important of safe sleep practices. And let’s face it, when it comes to co-sleeping, there is quite a debate out there about whether or not it’s a safe way to sleep.

The Overlooked Facts About Co-Sleeping

There’s a lot we could say about safe co-sleeping, but we’ve already made those points in this article, Is Co-Sleeping Dangerous?

But here’s the thing – we have learned a lot about how and why parents co-sleep in the 3 years since the American Academy of Pediatrics issued its warnings about the dangers of bed-sharing in 2011. The AAP went to great lengths then to issue warnings about the dangers of co-sleeping…and some states (New York and Wisconsin, for example) have taken up the call by creating their own anti-co-sleeping campaigns. The goal was to staunch the rising tide of infant deaths related to bed-sharing, and some of the tactics used in this anti-co-sleeping campaign were downright disturbing (like this image of baby sleeping next to a meat cleaver).

But it’s looking more and more like these campaigns have not only failed to make a meaningful difference in co-sleeping rates — it’s looking more and more like they have backfiredand it’s easy to see why.

For one, most of these campaigns strongly emphasize the dangers of sharing a bed with your baby – but really, sharing a bed is far, far less dangerous than parents sharing a couch with their babies, or a recliner. As Dr. Melissa Bartick shared in a recent article with WBUR, in Boston,

“As states have adopted the AAP 2011 recommendations, the advice to never sleep with your baby has backfired in the worst possible way. Rather than preventing deaths, this advice is probably even increasing deaths. Included in 2009 study that the AAP even cited in its statement for other conclusions, parents of two SIDS babies who slept with their infant on a sofa did so because they had been advised against bringing their infants into bed but had not realized the dangers of sleeping on a sofa. In fact, deaths from SIDS in parental beds has halved in the UK from 1984-2004, but there has been a rise of deaths from cosleeping on sofas.”

And it’s becoming clearer and clearer that not all co-sleeping is equal. An attachment parent who is committed to co-sleeping, and who is incredibly intentional about her family’s sleeping arrangements, is not at all the same as an parent who simply collapses on the sofa with baby on her chest, out of sheer exhaustion. So to treat ALL co-sleeping as dangerous is really unfair; we know that intentional co-sleeping, done safely and carefully, is actually quite safe indeed.

And finally (and perhaps most importantly), here’s what is most revealing about how fall short these anti co-sleeping campaigns have fallen: the evidence suggests that in spite of the AAP’s best efforts, over 40% of mothers report that they frequently or always share a sleep space with their child (and it’s likely the co-sleeping stats are grossly underestimated). The scare tactics simply aren’t working.

So what does this suggest? To us, it suggests that what we don’t need is a fear-based campaign designed to terrify mothers into not co-sleeping…instead, what we need is a comprehensive system to educate mothers about how to co-sleep safely and with intention, if they do choose to occasionally or frequently (or even always) share a sleeping space with their babies.

In some ways, this is like similar to the sex education that many teenagers receive in school. (Okay, not totally similar, but stick with me here!) There is lots of evidence that abstinence-based sex ed, on its own, is not nearly as effective as programs that teach both the value of abstinence AND safe-sex practices. You simply can’t terrify or persuade teenagers into not having sex, and hope that works. It doesn’t.

Similarly, you can’t terrify moms into not co-sleeping – the evidence suggests that they will anyway. So what if, instead, we focused on educating moms about what safe co-sleeping practices look like?

The fact is, as Dr. James McKenna points out, co-sleeping has been around since the dawn of time. We will never eradicate it, and campaigns that are designed to dissuade parents from sharing a sleep space with their children are bound to fail – whereas campaigns designed to educate and inform can only succeed.

How To Co-Sleep Safely

With all this talk about how to co-sleep safely, you may be wondering, “How exactly DO I co-sleep safely, anyway?” Glad you asked! These resources are great ones, if you want to educate yourself about safe co-sleeping practices:

  • Safe Co-Sleeping Guidelines
  • KellyMom Guide To Safe Co-Sleeping
  • Co-Sleeping Frequently Asked Questions
  • In the end, what we want to leave you with is this: there is no “right” or “wrong” sleeping arrangement for you and your baby, provided your sleeping arrangements are safe. Safe bed-sharing, safe room-sharing, safe crib-sleeping…it can all work! And your baby can sleep well, and peacefully, in any sleeping arrangement. The Baby Sleep Site® team is 100% committed to respecting your parenting goals, and your family’s sleeping arrangements, and we will work with you to improve your child’s sleep no matter what those arrangements look like. We will never pressure you to change you sleeping set-up; instead, we will work within the parameters you give us, and will respect them every step of the way.

    How Toddler Discipline Leads To Peaceful Sleep

    Toddler Discipline And Sleep

    We’re talking about the D-word today, parents – discipline! Yikes! I know this is no parent’s favorite thing to discuss, but would you believe that discipline is actually deeply, profoundly linked to how your toddler sleeps? It’s true – and since we are a blog that is devoted to sleep, we though it was a time we highlighted this connection.

    So what does toddler discipline have to do with toddler sleep? How can positive discipline and boundaries lead to toddlers who sleep through the night and take longer, more restorative naps?

    Read on to find out!

    Toddler Discipline: It’s All Aout Boundaries

    First, let’s be clear – we are NOT talking about punitive, harsh punishments when we use the word ‘discipline’ here. Rather, we are talking about positive toddler discipline. And what does positive toddler discipline largely consists of? Two words: setting limits.

    Remember, your toddler is a curious little creature who is new to the world, and who is jumping to explore every inch of it. But, of course, your toddler doesn’t have the wisdom to explore his world safely – and that’s where you come in. Really, this is SO much of what disciplining a toddler is about – simply keeping your toddler safe and healthy. Yes, working on character and manners is important, but in my opinion, much of that really starts being meaningful in the later toddler years, and pre-school years. When you’re talking about disciplining an 18 month old, or a 2 year old, your discipline is largely about setting limits that are designed to keep your child safe.

    Yes, setting these limits can be painful for us as parents, but keep in mind that limits equal love! Your love may be rewarded with screams and sobs and tiny fists to the face, but still – at least you will know that your limit-setting is an act of love.

    What Toddler Discipline Has To Do With Toddler Sleep

    So what does all of this have to do with sleep? Plenty! If you have every worked on sleep training a toddler, then you know first-hand what bedtime tantrums and nap time resistance look like, don’t you? ;) As we often tell parents who work with us in our Helpdesk, toddler sleep training is as much (in some cases, more) about establishing and enforcing strong sleep-time boundaries through positive discipline as it is about teaching new sleep habits. Babies who struggle with sleep do not generally have discipline issues, but toddlers? Often, discipline and limit-setting is key to helping a toddler sleep better.

    Keep in mind that for most toddlers, sleep is not exactly high on their list of priorities. Why nap when there is so much fun to be had? Why go to bed when the rest of the family is still up, and clearly having a great time? THIS is why discipline is so important for toddler sleep – if left to their own devices, most toddlers would much rather stay up than go to sleep. Yes, it may feel painful to enforce sleep-time discipline, especially if your toddler protests loudly, but keep in mind that you are doing this for your toddler’s sake. Your toddler needs restorative sleep in order to be healthy, and it’s up to you to make sure your toddler gets that sleep.

    Toddler Discipline At Naptime and Bedtime

    What does sleep-time discipline and limit-setting look like? Glad you asked! Here are some common discipline techniques we often recommend to parents who are working on toddler sleep training:

    • Use a sticker chart to provide instant rewards for good bedtime behavior (i.e. staying in bed). Some parents take stickers away as a consequence for bad behavior, but others prefer not to do that.
    • Put a baby gate at your toddler’s door, if your toddler has a habit of wandering out of her room all night long. (This is an essential safety step for some families – an unsupervised toddler wandering around in the middle of the night is a major hazard!)
    • Use a timer as part of your bedtime routine to limit bedtime stalling.
    • Use a special nap time or bedtime toy as an incentive (or perhaps more than one) – start the sleep time out with handing your toddler a special sleep time toy or two, and then the consequence becomes that any bad behavior results in the toy being taken away for a set amount of time. (Alternately, some parents start the sleep time with no toys, and then provide their child with the special toy as a reward for good behavior.)

    These are just a few tips, of course – there are many ways you can enforce sleep time boundaries in many different ways. It’s all about what works for your child, and what you feel comfortable with. For more discipline tips, read our article, 16 Limit-Setting Tips For Toddlers.

    A final word – please, please remember that discipline and limit-setting is not an optional part of parenting. This isn’t just something that’s nice to do, but not necessary – it is 100% necessary! And while it can feel so tough to discipline your toddler, keep this in mind: that toddler is only going to grow bigger, and more opinionated. Discipline is not something that gets easier as a child grows – in fact, it tends to get harder and harder. This is one really good reason to start working on positive discipline and limit-setting when your child is very young; if you do, then, as he grows, he will know exactly how to listen to authority figures, how to follow rules and respect boundaries, and that in turn will make your job as mom or dad much easier as the years go by.

    How To Get 3 A.M. Sleep Help

    Sleep Help At 3 A.M.

    Picture this: it’s 3 a.m. You’re exhausted, overwhelmed, and feeling utterly defeated by your baby’s sleep issues. You would give anything (ANYTHING) to have a clear plan of action designed to help you solve your little child’s sleep problems…but it’s 3 a.m. Where can you turn? Who can help you at that hour?

    We can. Sure, none of our team members are awake, but why should that matter? It’s our mission to bring affordable sleep coaching plans to families worldwide…and now, you can get a custom sleep plan 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

    How, you ask? With an Express Sleep Plan™, that’s how!

    Introducing The New Express Sleep Plan™ from The Baby Sleep Site®

    Express Sleep Plan
    So what is the Express Sleep Plan™? Glad you asked. The Express Sleep Plan™ is an all-new customized sleep plan option, designed specifically for parents who need a sleep plan fast. Here’s how it works:

    • Purchase an Express Sleep Plan™, and immediately receive an email with Helpdesk login information.
    • Login in to the Helpdesk, where you will be prompted to take a brief survey.
    • After completing the survey (a process which takes less than 10 minutes), hit the ‘Submit’ button, and voila! A customized sleep plan is available instantly, ready for you to download and print.

    Pretty great, right? Because the Express Sleep Plan™ is 100% digital, it provides immediate sleep help around the clock. And even better, the Express Sleep Plan™ is incredibly wallet-friendly, making it perfect for families who want sleep help but have a very limited budget.

    The Express Sleep Plan™ is a perfect cross between our do-it-yourself resources and our personalized coaching packages. While an Express Sleep Plan™ is software-generated and is not created by an expert sleep consultant (like our Personalized Sleep Plan™ is), it’s a great option for parents who want a sleep coaching plan that is more focused and customized than what they would find in a book, but who also feel comfortable implementing that plan on their own, without the help of a sleep consultant.

    And here’s the beautiful part – every Express Sleep Plan™ comes with an upgrade option. That means that if you try your Express Sleep Plan™ for a week or two, and then decide that you need personalized help from a consultant after all, you can have it! Simply purchase a specially-priced upgrade package, and connect with your consultant – she’ll tweak your plan for you, if necessary (or even create a whole new one, if you need her to) and answer all your questions.

    Keep in mind that the Express Sleep Plan™ is meant for babies or toddlers who are 4 months of age or older, and who are in good overall physical health. If your baby is younger than 4 months, or if your child has health issues that you think will impact sleep training, you’ll want to stick with personalized help from a consultant.

    The Express Sleep Plan™ WORKS – Just Ask Jessica!

    A low-priced, customized sleep plan that’s available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and is ready in minutes sounds great…but does it actually work? Can the Express Sleep Plan™ really help your baby or toddler sleep better?

    We’ll let Jessica answer that one. She purchased an Express Sleep Plan™ recently, and here’s what she had to say about it:

    “Our little man is 19 months old and had a rough start with sleep. After about 4 months he slept pretty well, in his own crib in his own room. His sleep habits were well established until we moved. He did not transition well and we spent weeks trying everything we could from sleeping next to his crib on an air mattress to letting him sleep with us, to getting him a bigger bed that we could sleep with him in.

    After approximately 3-4 weeks of no one in our home getting any decent sleep, we decided that the problem was beyond our ability to solve. I needed an expert to give me some guidelines that were tailored to our family’s needs. I loved that the Express Sleep Plan gave me ideas that were right for our family’s situation and took into account our comfort levels with crying and our baby’s developmental stage. We read the plan carefully and then slightly tweaked several of the strategies presented.

    In short, it worked like a charm and we have spent three blissful days basking in well rested euphoria!! Reese is now sleeping in his bed all night (he still gets up several times a night, but we still stick to the plan) and mommy and daddy are sleeping in their own bed.

    We really cannot thank you enough for your expert advice. It is hard to be a good parent when you are sleep deprived, and it is also hard to make good decisions and plans when you cannot think straight because you are so tired. Your plan literally helped our family get back on track and we are beginning to feel normal once again.

    I highly recommend the consultation services to any family who may be in the same situation. There is so much advice out there and it’s nice to have the best of the best information synthesized into one helpful packet tailored specifically to your family. Again, thank you for everything!”

    -Jessica S.

    That last part – “it’s nice to have the best of the best information synthesized into one helpful packet tailored specifically to your family” – that’s what makes the Express Sleep Plan™ work so well. We’ve taken the best of the baby sleep books, as well as our collective years of experience working with sleep-deprived families, and turned it into a simple, easy-to-use software program that creates custom sleep plans in seconds.

    Night Weaning FAILS: 7 Reasons Night Weaning May Not Be Working

    Night Weaning Fails 7

    There is no script for night weaning. When night weaning happens varies widely from family to family – some babies are basically done night feeding quite young (around 4 or 5 months, for some), while other families are perfectly happy to keep feeding their 2 or 3 year old at night.

    And how to night wean? That’s unscripted, too! Some parents opt for a cold-turkey approach, while other parents prefer to use a longer, gentler, more gradual approach.

    Remember, too, that when and how to night wean is a purely personal decision. Some moms are desperate to night wean as soon as possible, while other mamas really love the cuddly night feedings, and are reluctant to give them up! The when and the how are totally up to you – you should never feel pressured to night wean at a certain time, or in a certain way.

    But all that aside – if there is one thing EVERY family wants, it’s for night weaning to be successful. Whenever you do it, and however you do it, you obviously want it to actually work.

    But what if it doesn’t? What if all your best efforts to night wean your baby or toddler fall flat?

    That’s what we’re talking about today, readers! Join us as we look at 7 common reasons why night weaning fails.

    7 Reasons Night Weaning May Not Be Working

    1. Your baby is too young to night wean safely. This is just common sense, in some ways – don’t try to night wean a 2 month old, because that little baby is just too young to go all night without feedings! But we do find sometimes that parents are trying to night wean their 5 or 6 month old, because they are under the impression that all babies should be able to sleep through the night be 4 months. But really, it’s perfectly normal for a 6 month old baby to need one, or sometimes two, night feedings. So don’t rush this – if there are signs that your baby still needs her night feedings, then don’t rush to eliminate them. Not sure if your baby is ready to night wean? Check out our quiz, Is Your Baby Ready To Night Wean? for help.
    2. Your baby is eating too much solid food. Keep in mind that while it’s fine to start introducing solid food when your baby is about 6 months old, breastmilk or formula should still be the primary source of nutrition for your baby’s first year. Why? Because breastmilk and formula is calorie-rich and nutrient-packed, compared to solid food, which is actually fairly light on calories. If your baby is taking in too much solid food, and not enough breastmilk or formula, he may be making up for some of those lost calories by feeding at night. To solve this, simply cut back on the solids and add in one or two more breastmilk or formula feeds.
    3. Your baby is a distracted daytime eater. Sure, you can feed your baby every 2 hours during the day in an effort to pack in all her calories during daylight hours…but if your distractible little eater is too preoccupied with what’s happening around her to actually each much, odds are she will continue to wake at night to feed. You can work on this by feeding your distracted eater in a dim, quiet room; this will minimize the stimuli around her, and help her focus on feeding.
    4. You aren’t feeding your baby enough during the day. One of the most common errors parents make when night-weaning is not adjusting how much they offer milk/formula or solid food during the day. They mistakenly think baby either doesn’t need additional calories during the day or they believe they will automatically get them. But, in some cases, you need to make a concerted effort to increase daytime calories precisely so your baby doesn’t need them during the night.
    5. In your baby or toddler’s eyes, your boobs > the bottle. Just because your baby CAN get nourishment from the bottle doesn’t mean he WANTS to. Even babies who will take a bottle willingly may still strongly prefer mama’s boob, and that may be at the root of your issue. If your baby will grudgingly take formula or expressed breastmilk from a bottle, it may be that he’s not taking enough, because he’s waiting to get his milk fresh from the source (a.k.a. YOU!). This tends to really be a problem for working moms whose kiddos drink from bottle all day, but then who want to nurse all night. The solution here is simply to gradual phase out the nighttime nursing until your little one gets the picture, that the boobs just aren’t available for nursing anymore.
    6. Your baby doesn’t know how to self-soothe to sleep. Here it is – this is the reason why most night weaning fails, in our experience. If your baby doesn’t know how to fall asleep independently, without being fed to sleep, then there is no way night weaning is going to work, because every time your baby wakes during the night, he needs you to come and feed him back to sleep. You can usually spot these sleep associations kinds of feedings – often, your baby will wake, cry, you’ll feed him for about 90 seconds, and then he’s back out. Clearly, he’s not hungry – he just needs help to fall back to sleep. The solution for this? Teach your baby how to fall asleep independently, without feeding to sleep. Or, in other words, work on sleep coaching. ;)
    7. Your baby knows how to fall asleep independently, but the associations between nursing to sleep is very strong. This is the one that stumps many parents. Your baby knows how to fall asleep independently, and does it sometimes (like at nap time, and at bedtime) – but she’s still waking all night and needing little mini-feeds. In these cases, it’s likely that your child just has a particularly strong association between feeding and sleeping, and that strong association is showing itself at night. The fix here would just be to stay very consistent and committed to your night weaning plan, and to help soothe your child during night wakings without feeding to sleep.

    A quick disclaimer – sometimes (very, very rarely) night weaning may not work because you have a hidden, hard-to-spot nursing problem. For instance, you may have low milk supply, so even though you are feeding often during the day, your baby isn’t getting enough nourishment and needs to feed at night (just as an example – there are other nursing problems that can cause night weaning issues). This is most likely NOT a problem for the vast majority of you, and you shouldn’t worry about it unduly. But if you suspect that you might have a nursing issue, it’s best to get in touch with a local lactation consultant for more information. Or, if you want sleep training support from an experienced lactation consultant, you can check out our special breastfeeding packages, each of which is serviced by a trained lactation consultant.
