    This article is AWESOME! So funny…and clearly shows how there is no one answer to the dilemma of helping your child sleep. I read a couple of books and they made me feel like a terrible parent for doing it ALL WRONG. They were immediately thrown out and though I often don’t have the answer I am better off not turning to a book for advice. Particularly since my son leans toward being a spirited child, and much of the mainstream advice doesn’t recognize this as being a thing. Nicole, your approach has been of the most help – simply knowing I am not the only one who struggles is priceless.

    • @Jill I agree wholeheartedly that the “spirited” kids are left out of the equation in many books. I’m so glad to have been here for you and all the other parents who struggle with feeling alone, too! 🙂 Thanks for commenting!

    I struggled with many conflicting viewpoints on sleep as well prior to finding The Baby Sleep Site and Nicole. I have Weissbluth’s book, which is great, but not 100% suited to a baby that isn’t ‘straight forward’. Sleeping through the Night is another one I read, and many friends shared advice from the Baby Whisperer. Not to mention countless websites and blogs that I searched through! There were too many questions that I didn’t have answers to, no matter how long I spent searching or what books I read. I am sure I was in the same boat as a lot of other people and took away many different great little tips from each book, but nothing that I could really piece together as a ‘plan’ that I knew would work for my little one (who had his own challenges that none of the books seemed to address). I tried and tried what the books suggested only to come out frustrated and doubting myself that I was doing the right thing for our son.
    We are well on our way now after finding Nicole!

    This article made me smile as it sums up the different viewpoints so well, with a sense of humour of course!
