Episode #4: How Long Do I Let My Baby Cry? (And Other Difficult Questions!)


Mar 7, 2018

This episode is all about answering a few of those “Sticky Questions” I am always asked. But let me ask you one first…

  • Why are parents so quick to comfort their child when crying, yet they themselves are willing to go so long with uncomfortable, sleepless nights?

  • How long is too long for a child to cry?

  • How long is too long for a parent to finally cry out for help?

Join me as I share with you my sleep philosophy that has helped hundreds of families resolve those exhausting sleep habits.

Two of the most common questions parents are either embarrassed or nervous to ask are:

#1 – Will you be telling me to do Cry It Out? 

Let me explain to you what this really means, what some pediatricians have said about it, and my philosophy on crying when working with families. 

#2 – How long should my baby be crying?

Have your pen and paper ready… I’m about to give you the magic number! Just kidding. I explain how you should sleep train with a plan and purpose, not a magic number. There is also power in accountability, and I will share with you a personal experience on this.

My Motto: A baby who is well rested is happier, healthier, and eager to explore the world around them.
