I sleep trained at 3 months. Best decision ever. My daughter is 17 months soon and is an awesome sleeper/napper.
I read a booked called Precious Little Sleep. It’s called SLIP, Sleep Learning Independence Process. I would highly recommend. It’s science evident based and effective. There’s also a free FB group, of the same name, and the admin and moms are really supportive. She’ll be two in September and still have successful nights and naps.
what method did you use?
My baby will be 2 months on the 7th
I was advised to start at 4 months. and it was the best decision I made. He would have one feed a night until 8-9 months and then I cut it. I don’t think I’ll do the night feed with my next baby if they are a good size ... He sleeps a good 12 hours straight now. We used Ferber method. But also had a sleep consultant give us a schedule.
My son had a routine from day one and started sleeping through the night without any prompting from me or his dad at 3 weeks old, It scared me to death the first couple nights but when he woke up in the morning he was ok. He is now 3 months old and sleeps through the night, sometimes he spits his dummy out on purpose because he is fighting sleep but I let his cry for a Min or to before I put it back it and tuck him in again
I didn’t really have to try and keep him awake, he still had naps during the day but most the time he wanted to be awake
How you keep him up during the day?
I started implementing Baby Wise at around 6 weeks (you can start sooner). She's been sleeping through the night (in her own room, in her crib) since. I can't imagine having a 1 year old and still waking up with them! 12 hours every night! Sleep is too important to every one in the home. (side note--it's not a cry it out method! I couldn't fathom that. You organize their day and the night falls into place!)
Erin.... tell us more about Baby Wise??
