Soothers

 

Can you baby sleep well with a soother?

Some babies that are good sleepers can get away with using a soother. But I have yet to come across a baby that can learn to sleep well using a soother. It is a prop, something external they rely on to fall asleep or stay asleep or even just start their journey to sleep. And because of this, it interferes with the development of their own skills.

What if baby can find the soother on their own? It still interrupts their sleep even if they have to wake up and find the soother. And most babies will still need some help every now then.

So the bottom line is the soother needs to go if you want sleep to improve.

Most parents are nervous to get rid of the soother because it is their crutch too. But within a few days, parents report it is so liberating not having to worry about the soother.
