Understanding the world as it really is—random—can liberate and empower us.

As a clinical psychologist certified in behavioral sleep medicine, this blog opinion piece greatly disappoints me. I have been through lectures by Dr. Ferber, and his caring about pediatric sleep is immense. It would be great to have sleep articles written by people who ARE familiar with the decades of research in pediatric sleep (as Dr. Narvaez indicated she is not), and pay attention to the studies that are published as part of their regular line of work. There is a lot of support for breastfeeding in the pediatric sleep community, and the efforts at helping infants sleep well are designed to work for the entire developmental spectrum. This is not an "us vs. them" approach or argument that is presented from the sleep community, but rather unprovoked attacks. This is why I no longer subscribe to Psychology Today.
