Sleep training?

If you did sleep training for your kiddo(s), what program/course/etc. did you choose? Not pursuing CIO but we need to figure something out for our guy. He was such a good sleeper until December and now it’s… a struggle. Wondering if any mums out there have taken a liking to any sleep training programs in particular!
