Episode #10: What’s A Sleep Prop? (The Good & The Not So Good)


Apr 20, 2018

Stepping out of my own head today and breaking down what a sleep prop is, when they are useful, and when we need to think about ditching them. 

Sleep Prop Breakdown By Age: 

Newborns- pacifiers, swaddles, rocking, bouncing…anything! These sleep props are so needed because newborns cannot self-soothe. But we do need to use them correctly! Check out Sleep From The Start: Online Newborn Course to learn ALL about newborn sleep!

Baby- around 4 months old your baby can learn self-soothing strategies so we need to begin the prop elimination! White noise, darkness, sleep sacks, thumb-sucking, or anything THEY control!

Toddler-  stuffed animals, blankets, even family photos are great sleep props for toddlers and preschoolers. 

Ready to ditch the sleep props and teach your child to sleep independently? Let’s get started!
