    We’ve been using the Ferber method for night night for 2 weeks now and last night my little girl woke up at 3:15 and didn’t go back to sleep for an hour and a half. I’m pretty sure she’s teething, and I gave her medicine when she first woke up but she still didn’t settle for ages. If I pick her up and put her in the bed with us now, will that disrupt the sleep training? She has slept through about 7 out of the last 14 nights.

      Hi @Alix, thanks for writing to us! I’m sorry to hear your daughter didn’t settle for you the other night. I would suggest if sleep training has been going well so far to stick to the plan even if she is teething. Teething is a long journey you could be on for the first 2-3 years of her life, so it is something to navigate through and not around (if that makes sense). Try to offer comfort where you can (like you did by providing medicine), and she will learn to settle on her own again. I’ll also mention – there was a full moon the night you posted this, and that really affects some kids sleep, my kids woke up an hour early that morning too! I hope this helps and things go back to normal and continue to improve. Thanks for visiting the Baby Sleep Site!
