Baby Sleep for Modern Parents

Rank #1: Breaking Down Sleep Schedules and Wake Times EP 5

Podcast cover
Read more

This podcast is a continuation of the Baby Sleep Power Tools Part 1, focusing specifically on sleep schedules and wake times. Many parents will bemoan the fact that in giving birth, they’ve become full-time Nap Police, a job that is unpaid, unrewarding, and unwanted. Being the Nap Police is also enormously isolating: you can never...

I often see smart thoughtful parents getting tripped up by the same stumbles time and again.

Or they over-complicate something which, let’s be honest, is already plenty complicated. And...

I’ve been using the term CIO or Cry It Out for years. I’ve never liked it. It’s pejorative. “Oh…you’re one of those CIO parents. Whelp I’m not, because, y’know, I’m a good parent.” It’s largely meaningless. And in some parenting circles even the faintest mention risks getting you banned from the group. It also doesn’t...
