Does the caregiver I want to share sleep responsibilities with have to be a parent?
No we provide you with the information needed to bring in another caregiver that could be a parent, your partner who is not a parent, a family member, or friend. If the caregiver is someone you trust or is part of your attachment village you will be able to apply the content in the course to your situation.
I currently nurse my little one to sleep, will I have to stop doing this to allow for another parent or caregiver to be able to put them to sleep?
Absolutely not! Most of the families we work with nurse their little ones to sleep and have others cuddle/snuggle their little ones to sleep. Babies and toddlers have different boundaries with different caregivers, so if you want to continue to nurse to sleep there’s no need to change this!
I am afraid my child will cry when I am not the one putting them to sleep. Is this still the right course for me?
Within the course we guide you through supporting emotion both as the primary caregiver and the caregiver being brought in to share sleep responsibilities. You will learn all about how to guide your child through the changes while respecting and supporting their tears in a responsive way.
Is there any sleep training involved?
All of our “Transitions Rooted in Attachment” self-paced courses are created to guide your family through sleep transitions without the use of any separation based techniques. There is absolutely no sleep training involved in this process. We have provided you with a comprehensive explanation of attachment and emotion so you can guide your child through this change in the most responsive way possible.
