Sleep training by definition is the process of training babies or young children to fall asleep on their own, typically by means of techniques in which the child is left to cry without being comforted, either for gradually increasing periods of time or until they fall asleep.

Sleep without sleep training is different because it respects the need for an emotionally available, responsive parent to optomize nurturing and emotional wellness. Unlike sleep training we do not focus on changing the baby or child, but rather focus on changing the parents response and the conditions that impact sleep. 

Shifting comfort zones: Yes, this works!

This is not a quick fix, but a long term solution that not only provides sleep solutions but prevents emotional challenges in the toddler years and beyond.
