After a bit of getting to know your baby, you’ll be able to hear the difference! With newborns too, they sleep so much and are so able to go right back to sleep that it’s less of a big deal if they get woken up.

Basically, if baby needs something they scream.  You will know that they need you for sure.  Otherwise, if baby’s eyes are closed and they aren’t screaming, let them be or you will train them to wake between sleep cycles.

Evie19:  to be honest, I am not a mom and have not used the Pantly method. However, I have been a pediatric nurse for about 8 years now and this is just based on my experience. My husband and I plan to use French methods with our children which is somewhat in line with what the “No Cry Sleep Solution” teaches, I believe. My point was just that you will definitely know when baby actually needs you so you don’t need to worry. 

The most important thing to be aware of whenemploying  any stategy with your baby is to pay attention to their cues. Every baby is different and you can do one thing in multiple different ways. Don’t worry about following any book or method to the letter just do what works for your baby and your family. 

Good luck!

I used Dr. Sears Baby Sleep Book, which isn’t really sleep training, just recommends co-sleeping and nursing on demand, and the Pantley method if you want to sleep train. She’s 10 months and we’ve always co-slept and fed on demand and it’s worked well for us. The gentle pull off thing I do all the time anyway, and sometimes she rolls over herself and goes to sleep, but a lot of times I am not really awake when nursing her, so she does fall asleep on there. I guess this is the long way of saying that it works for me even when I don’t do it consistently.

Oh also I think more often than not she fell asleep nursing as a newborn, and it also didn’t preclude the method from working!

Evie19:  I have a 7 week old and it is hard to tell the difference sometimes.  You just have to pay attention and learn the baby’s habits the first couple of weeks.  I try not to get my baby up unless his eyes are open or he is crying.
