Loving Baby Sleep Tips

I slept with my first two in our room for at least the first two months so know that when I say “crib” in this gentle sleep video, you can insert the word “bassinet”, “co-sleeper” or “bed” depending on where your little one is sleeping. I support moms in making this choice for and with their family as it can be different for each of us and even different with each of our children. For more on gentle baby sleep tips without using the cry-it-out method, visit here.
