i am feeling really really about letting jolene cry herself to sleep for the past couple of naps. i have no idea what to do. my decision feels political and not only that i could be permanently damaging her brain?

I obviously don’t have a kiddo (and certainly not one as fabulous as Ms. Jolene), but my parents were HUGE fans of the method when Jake and I were babies and still talk about it sometimes, so you should totally pick their brains. There was also a really interesting story about the importance of learning to self-sooth this summer on NPR which might be relevant (although this article is a few months old, so maybe its not as good as I remember?). http://www.npr.org/books/titles/155388979/the-happiest-baby-guide-to-great-sleep-simple-solutions-for-kids-from-birth-to-5
In any case, DON’T FEEL GUILTY. You’re raising that baby to know how much she is loved and cherished.
