Sleep Tip!

Are you having trouble getting your new child to sleep? A large amount of sleep is habit driven, set a schedule for you and your child that you can live with and stick to it. Use “Controlled Crying”. There is some debate on this topic, but you can decide with your partner if it is right for child.

Parents are told to let them cry for two, four, six, eight, and 10 and up to 20 minutes at a time, returning to comfort them briefly between each period.
