Does your baby need to be rocked to sleep by you — or wake up in the middle of the night demanding a breast, bottle or cuddle before drifting back to sleep? If your little one is at least six weeks old, it may be time to start sleep training.
By that age, babies can — and should — be able to fall asleep or fall back to sleep on their own by self-soothing.
If you’re dreading sleep training, know that it’s often accomplished faster than many parents imagine, and it doesn’t necessarily even have to involve lots of tears. Here’s how and when to start sleep training your baby to help everyone get a good night’s sleep.
