When it comes to parenting, everyone has conflicting and opposing views. Few areas have greater debate than sleep training. New parents are inundated with research on how babies, sleep, when babies sleep and how to sooth and clam them. One thing holds true… no matter how you choose to help your baby learn to sleep, there will be someone who disagrees with you. However, the fact of the matter is that this is not “everyone’s” concern. I do apologize if I seem harsh. With respect, some family members and close friends may desire to express legitimate concerns when the health and safety of the baby is at hand. The truth is, if your baby’s health or safety is in question, you should be seeking help for them yourself! But, this is the outside instance, and not what I am addressing here.
Sweet Pea believes that each parent is equipped with the inherit ability to know what is best for their child. The new parent’s dilemma however is “where do I start?” or “what solutions are available?”. New parent’s are faced with hours of reading, research, trial and error implementation, only to realize that the path they may have chosen was not the best for their family… start again. By this time baby is older, mom is sleep deprived and frustration sets in. Every baby is different and what works well with one, may not with another.
So, when I started Sweet Pea Baby Planners, I was committed to offering a revolutionary sleep solution for new parents. Rather than endorsing one method or another, I strongly believe that the solution for each family will be unique to their situation, desires, and personalities. In my experience, most families actually end up with a combination of a few sleep philosophies. The bottom line is, new moms and dads have the ability to make informed decisions for themselves and we gladly support them in doing so.
You can visit a website called Opposing Views, where people offer their opinions on what they believe is “best”.
