Myth: Sleep training (or NOT sleep training) my children could harm them in the long term. Fact: There’s no data to show either choice hurts your child in the long-run. TUESDAY, May 24, 2016 (HealthDay News) Common techniques for helping babies and parents sleep at night seem to carry no long-term harms, a small trial finds.
The study tested two methods: “graduated extinction” (also known as “controlled crying”) and “bedtime fading.” The former strategy is aimed at letting babies “self-soothe” on their own, without. While it’s still unclear which method will work best for each baby and family, mounting research suggests that the practice of letting a baby cry for short intervals while learning to put herself to sleep is not inherently harmful —and does not seem to cause long term emotional problems for the baby or disrupt the parent-child bond. Sleep training is harmful because it confuses the child over the long-term. While, most babies that cry-it-out will eventually stop expecting the attention, help, and comfort they crave for a short period of time, childhood is a time of milestone after milestone and life just doesn’t cease because a child enters the picture. So, no, I am not going to argue here that sleep training will be psychologically harmful to your baby, though I encourage you to check out another blog post with my Top Ten Tips for Coping With Your Baby’s Sleep.
I am going to be talking here about someone who I KNOW for certain can be damaged by sleep training advice: MOTHERS!If sleep training is so harmful (according to up to date research), why is it still legal and, even in most countries, recommended by the department of health? Health departments and academies, at. While it may involve some tears, sleep training isn’t harmful for babies, who often learn to be super sleepers in just a few nights. Sleep training is the process of helping a baby learn to fall asleep and stay asleep through the night.
Some babies do this quickly and easily. But many others have trouble settling down to sleep – or getting back to sleep when they’ve wakened – and they need help along the way. Even though, Sleep training is the most popular methods of improving a child’s sleep habits, it may not always lead to positive results as intended.
You need a good sleep; so does your baby. Your baby shall thank you even more if you do not insist on sleep-training them. Sleep is important in mental, physical and emotional health. The first year with your baby should be a joyful, precious, and peaceful time.
Don’t let behaviorist ideas or sleep training mandates take that away.
