There are many different definitions of “cry it out”, and it is most commonly defined as deciding your baby is going to sleep, putting them in their sleep space, and leaving them there until morning. I wouldn’t recommend this. Supporting your child through this change is important, and so is your comfort level.
Sleep goals and approaches are different for every family. I am committed to ensuring your little one is ready to learn healthy sleep hygiene and utilize customized systems. There are many routes to choose from, including gentle approaches! I do ask that you keep in mind when you make a change of any kind, your baby will likely cry expressing their discomfort as they are learning. Please feel reassured you will be encouraged and taught how to support them every step of the way and that we can choose an approach that you will be comfortable with as we work towards more sleep for your family.
