Clips of my interview were strewn together in a spread about different sleep "training" methods titled, "A Good Night Sleep: Finding the best sleep-training option for your family". The methods listed were Cry-it-Out, Supported, No-Cry, and Co-sleeping or Bed-sharing. I've used a bit of each except cry-it-out (it didn't suit me and my family), but I found Elizabeth Pantley's book, The No-Cry Sleep Solution to be my best resource. I had actually just recommended this book to a friend who is a new mother just days before the interview. In the interview, I talked a bit about how this book helped me, including:
- Helping me become a more mindful parent and understand normal infant sleep habits
- Effective nursing to sleep and staying asleep strategies
- Introducing a "lovey" to ease into nap times and the day care transition
- The importance of a night time routine and consistency from me
Here's a shot of the page. To read the full article pick up the March 2012 issue of Canadian Family.
I am happy with how my little interview went and how appears in print. It's kind of neat seeing your name in a magazine!
P.S I'm loving Twitter these days but I have to admit it took me awhile to get into it. If you are on Twitter and we haven't connected yet, be sure to send me a hello at @aliciafagan!
