When it comes to babies, teething is the ultimate scapegoat. From diaper rashes to earaches, from fevers to nighttime wake-ups, the classic fall back position for parents has traditionally been, "It's probably because she's teething."
Which is why I hear a lot of parents thinking twice about whether it's the right time to start sleep training.
It's a valid concern, but one that I think gets overthought and over applied. After all, if you're not going to sleep train for the entire time that your little one might have a tooth coming in, you could be waiting for years.
In today's episode, I dispel some of the myths about teething, and give you some strategies for continuing your sleep training schedule while your little one is cutting teeth. (As well as a few ingenious tips I've learned from my clients for keeping baby's teeth clean without a fuss.)
