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 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??
My LO is 18 mo and has been sleeping since 4 months. We read 12 hours in 12 weeks and it worked like a charm!! I have passed the book on to several mamas and all have had success. Highly recommend it. Good luck!!
