    I could not agree with you more. As a parent who wanted (and did, but not with the help of these recommendations!) successfully breast feed, I remember practically screaming that recommending breastfeeding while simultaneously, essentially prohibiting co-sleeping, could not have felt less supportive. And as a psychologist with some experience in motivational enhancement, this is NOT a patient-centered approach that tries to meet parents where they’re at.

      @Heather Thank you for your comments! I’m so glad to hear that you were able to successfully breastfeed despite of the recommendations! Please keep reading and sharing. 🙂

    I noticed the report and completely agree that realism is an issue. Neither of my boys would sleep well in a bassinet and we were often “breaking the rules” desperate for a good nights sleep. Even now, I technically lay my 8 month old down on his back for naps and nighttime sleep, but he turns instantaneously and has slept on his stomach since he could roll at 8 weeks so I often rub his back a moment before leaving the room. Obviously we all care about our kids safety, but often there is only so much we can do.

    • @Kara I completely agree! Thank you for commenting. 🙂
