Before you jump into sleep training (or anything else really.) Ask yourself the following questions:
- What are you specifically hoping to get out of sleep training?
- What specific changes do you hope to see?
- How do you want your child’s sleep to be different?
- How do you want to feel when this is all over?
Think about these questions and leave a comment about your goals below. No need to write a novel! It could be as simple as having your baby sleep 8 hours through the night or reducing your night feedings from 2 to 1 for example.
If you take the time to write down what you’re hoping to achieve you’ll have a much better chance of reaching your goals. Sharing also helps others see that their goals are not unrealistic.
