A CBS news report examines the new sleep training movement that says parents can sleep train their babies at 2 months.
As CBS2’s Dr. Max Gomez explained, there are pros and cons to early sleep training.
Most pediatricians think that it’s okay to let babies cry themselves back to sleep at 4 to 6 months, but there’s a new movement that says parents can sleep train their babies at 2 months.
Little Marcello has a good reason for crying — he’s hungry. Which isn’t a problem in the middle of the day, but when the 8-week old wakes up in the middle of the night, what does mom do then?
“He eats, put him right back to sleep,” Meira Cheisa said.
Meira said she’s okay with that because unlike his big brother Luca who slept through the night very early on, Marcello’s not quite ready.
Lack of sleep because a baby won’t sleep through the night is one of the biggest complaints that new parents have.
