The common advice about infant sleep many parents think is beneficial could actually be doing more harm than good.

Join us as we debunk the myths of sleep training with our guest, Taylor Kulick, a renowned sleep consultant, parenting educator, and occupational therapist. Drawing from her own experiences, Taylor helps us navigate the delicate postpartum period, discussing safe bed sharing and the importance of setting realistic expectations about a baby's sleep patterns.

In this episode, we talk about:

The fascinating history of sleep training, a practice that emerged during the industrial revolution and has remained popular due to societal pressures and lack of support for mothers and babies.

The emotional realm of parenting, as Taylor lends her expertise on navigating feelings of shame that arise when one's parenting approach diverges from the norm.

The consequences of a non-responsive sleep-training approach and how to respond to a baby's cries in a beneficial way while also exploring how both mom and baby can get their sleep needs met.

This is an eye-opening conversation that challenges the preconceived notions many of us hold about baby sleep and the mainstream definition of sleep training with a unique perspective and a tailored approach for each baby's individual needs.
