Have you ever bought a product that promises a quick fix and seems a little too good to be true?
Most parents coping with young kids and sleep issues are desperate for any solution to their nightly trials, and there are countless products that promise to soothe your child into a peaceful slumber.
This is not unlike to the staggering number of quick fix weight-loss products on the market But do they really work?
Not often and not long-term.
In order to lose weight and keep it off, you need to change your lifestyle, your diet and your way of thinking about food in order to keep off the pounds.
The same goes for sleep. To truly foster a healthy relationship with your child and his sleeping habits, you need to be disciplined, have a plan and change the way you structure bedtime. You need to get to the root of why your child is not sleeping well and then make some changes.
The only way to get a baby sleeping well is to teach her the skills by creating a system that will promote sleep independence. Believe it or not, your baby truly is capable of sleeping on her own without too much help from you or anything else.
If a child has not developed healthy sleep habits, all the lavender in the world is not going to help. Instead, develop a plan, stick to it, and before you know it, your child will be sleeping through the night!
