Infant Sleep and Sleep Training

Good sleep among infants and young children is important for their physical, mental, and emotional health and well-being. Sleep issues among infants and young children are often identified by their caregivers. Common sleep issues include difficulties settling to sleep, frequent night waking, and excessive nighttime crying. Many times, behavioural sleep interventions, such as the “crying it out” method or “sleep training”, are recommended to parents as a solution.
