FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is sleep training?

Sleep training is teaching the child how to fall asleep independently.

What age can we start sleep training?

We can start sleep training babies over 4 months (up until toddler age! There is no too late).

Is crying it out part of sleep training?

Sleep training is NOT limited to cry it out (this is one method). We have more gradual methods other than crying it out.

What are the keys to success for sleep training?

The keys to success:

  • Consistency
  • Commitment from you, your partner and anyone else who is helping you raise your child- everyone needs to be on the same page.
  • Patience. You will need a two-week window with no travel and no important engagements (for at least one parent/caregiver), so that we can really work on getting your child’s schedule down.

Is sleep only about my baby sleeping at night?

Sleep training is not only about night sleep but also getting in the proper naps and ensuring that your child gets the appropriate amount of daytime sleep.

What happens if there are other people who take care of my baby while I’m working?

I understand that you might be working, which is fine- as long as whoever cares for your child during the day will be able to keep the schedule and be able to correctly report the times of naps, so that we can get to the right bedtime.

Will my baby be crying a lot while sleep training?

There will still be crying even though we will be choosing moderate or even gentle forms of sleep training, The baby will be protesting this change but I can also assure you that babies are quite adaptable and if you are consistent, it will only take the time when we are working together to get your child adjusted.

What is the cry it out method? Do you use it?

Cry it out method is leaving the child alone to sleep. This is an acceptable form of sleep training with no studies showing any long term negative effects but we do not have to use this method because we can use other methods where you can support your child but allow them to fall asleep indendently.

Do I leave my child while he/she is crying during the sleep training process?

You can stay with your child BUT we will be changing the style of sleeping (for example taking out nursing, rocking, dancing/hele) so there will be crying but you will support your child.

Does it matter if I breast feed or bottle feed while sleep training?

It also does not matter if you are breastfeeding or bottle feeding, either will work with the sleep training process.

Do I have to stop breast feeding for my child to sleep better?

Breastfeeding does not have to stop for your child to sleep better. You do not have to wean from the breast (unless it is your personal choice)

Can I still night feed my baby?

Depending on your child’s age and weight/height development and your pedia’s recommendation, we can still include night feedings if necessary. If not, we can also work on weaning from night feeds.

  • So for example babies 4-6 months will likely still have two night feeds but the idea is just feed-sleep and no need to do anything else.
  • We always want to meet our child’s NEEDS, so if they are truly hungry- we will always feed them.

Does my child have to be in a different room for sleep training?

Ideally I would like your child to be in their own room because this is really helpful for independent sleep.

However, due to preference or space limitations, I agree to room sharing with certain conditions:

  • As long as your child has a safe separate sleep space-like a crib or a playpen.
  • The room will be used just for sleeping, when your child is sleeping. (All work or other things will be done outside the room when the child is sleeping and you go into the room to sleep as well)

Can my baby share a bed with me or with my other child?

I do NOT recommend bed sharing (baby sleeping in the same bed as you) with an infant still because of the SIDS risk and other dangers like suffocation due to the loose sheets or due to the adult mattress (which is still too soft for infants/toddlers).

A good nights sleep is just a phone call or email away.
