<![CDATA[Crying and Sleep Coaching - Understanding and minimizing your baby's tears]]>Sun, 24 Feb 2019 12:00:00 GMThttp://mommy-sos.com/podcast/crying-and-sleep-coaching-understanding-and-minimizing-your-babys-tears
How much will my baby have to cry? Is there any way to avoid crying altogether?

​As with many things in parenthood, tears and protest are often involved when it comes to setting boundaries and making changes. And since the goal of sleep coaching is to make a
change in your baby or toddler’s sleep habits and to set healthy boundaries around their sleep, it is actually quite likely that there will be some crying involved.  It is your baby’s only way to communicate! But the range is so widespread - in the amount, the length and the type of crying. On this episode, we’re exploring the different kinds of crying you can expect when it comes to sleep coaching - and my best tips to help maximize your support and minimize your little one’s tears throughout the process.
