Sleep- we all could use a bit more than we actually get. I often wonder how my life would change if I could sleep soundly every night. And as a result of my sleep issues, I vowed that as a parent I would do anything I could to help my children learn to be good sleepers.
We did a bit of co-sleeping in the early days out of desperation. But as a practice, we knew that was not going to help any of us. A friend and colleague of mine, Dr. Craig Canapari, wrote this great article about ending the cycle of co-sleeping. He has some excellent advice about sleep hygiene and concerns.
