A New CIO Study – Alanna’s Thoughts on the Findings

I had the pleasure of speaking with CTV News on a recent Australian CIO study. It’s findings claims that methods like graduated extinction and bedtime fading has no effect on parent/child attachment or results in the stress hormone cortisol for the babies.

I was able to offer my opinion on the study and my thoughts on sleep training in this interview. Stay tuned towards the end where I share my issue with this study and why it’s findings aren’t the only thing that should help create your baby’s sleep plan.

*Please note this interview shows extremely young infants. I do not support the method of CIO on babies younger than 4.5 months of age and the babies monitored in this study were 6 months of age.
