One of the biggest challenges that many of the parents that I speak with face is being constantly tired or exhausted due to restless nights and time needed to settle their little one.
After looking after babies for many years I’m familiar with a lot of the traditional sleep programs and the practices they encourage such as crying it out. I don’t know about you, but I’ve always found this practice heartbreaking.
I just think it’s so sad to leave a baby to cry!
I was thrilled to recently meet Cara Tyrrell since we share a childcare educator background with similar experiences. Cara founded her business Core4Parenting an online community and course platform for parents and caregivers that follows the developmental path of the young child, while educating, empowering and engaging parents and caregivers to be their child’s brain architect between birth and 5 years old, setting them up for success in school and life.
In this episode Cara talks about her sleep soothing system which is all about teaching baby to self soothe, their first life skill that they can do by themselves. I found what she has to say fascinating and wow, this is such a welcome change to the traditional sleep training programs!
