Babies are so interesting! I actually learned with my first child that crying is a sign of health, especially when they fall or get hurt. If they cry it is seen as a good sign, if they do not cry sometimes it means that something could be wrong and the incident create potential deeper issues. As to sleeping, well I believe that helping our children learn to sleep effectively is a process of developing a relationship with our children. I think it should be received as a huge opportunity to get to know your child and learn about who they are and how they are evolving. That is definitely a challenge most of the time but in my experience it has been such a joy to learn each of my children a lot better simply by helping them learn how to relate to sleeping and how to let sleep teach them in a sense. I love discussions like this, great to hear others opinions and experiences!
