Sleep training methods are often used to help move away from current sleep habits and associations. Sleep associations can include being held/rocked to sleep, driven in the car, falling asleep at the breast or bottle, whilst in a pushchair or if a parent needs to sit by their side whilst they fall asleep. NOT ALL SLEEP ASSOCIATIONS ARE BAD! There is only ever a need to carry out sleep training if you and/or your child are struggling from sleep deprivation, are having tricky naps, bedtime issues and/or frequent night wakings, and it’s affecting relationships within the family whether it be between you and your child, or between parents.
