The Ferber Method of sleep training babies, also known as Ferberizing or Ferberization, has been popular since the mid-80's when Dr. Richard Ferber wrote his book, and for good reason. It is a very structured approach and provides a clear path for parents to follow. For those of us who need very specific guidelines, this can work very well, so if you choose to Ferberize your baby or toddler, you are in good company! When done correctly, Ferberization can be very effective, and often, many babies

Magically, it has happened. Your twins are finally sleeping long lovely stretches at night. Glorious day. It’s amazing how a 12 hour stretch provides a big enough energy boost that you feel like you could run a full-blown marathon (or binge watch Stranger Things with a glass of wine if that’s your style). Then…. No, that faint cry you are starting to hear is not your imagination or the beginnings of a horror movie. Your twins are up! Your 12-hour window is shattering before your eyes. How could
It's no secret that we at The Baby Sleep Site are dedicated to helping parents help their children to gently fall asleep independently, and take long restorative naps. If your little one is waking up in the night or mid-way through their nap, chances are they need to let go of sleep associations or adjust their schedules to combat over-tiredness. Learning to sleep independently and having an ideal sleep schedule are two of the most important factors to helping your child get the sleep they need.
I’m an extrovert. Always have been, probably always will be. So much so that I occasionally take on a catering job as a waitress just to get out of the house and talk with people. ;) Being a mom is the most amazing job I’ve ever had. And I especially love the moments when time just kind of stops and I am overwhelmingly aware of how blessed I am. It often hits me the most after another long day has ended and I’m snuggling with my girls during their bedtime routine. That is my favorite time of
In speaking with clients, I tend to see two types of parents. One type tends to have a mindset something like "Sleep has been bad this long, what's another month or two?" and they are fine with a slower process and expect it to take awhile before their baby sleeps better. The other type is more like "I'm at the end of my rope. I can't take this anymore. Please help me TODAY!" Of course, there are parents in between, but this article is for those parents "at the end of their ropes (or tethers)"
You finally get to hold your precious baby in your arms, your own little miracle and even if it's your second, third, or sixth, there is nothing ever like it in the entire world. You spend the first few weeks bonding, but suddenly the exhaustion starts to take a toll and you wonder when you will ever get to sleep, truly sleep, for the whole night again. For most new, and even veteran parents, the holy grail of getting life back to "normal" is getting to "sleep through the night" again. So,
You can't believe you are actually holding your baby in your arms after you felt them grow inside for so long. You get to feel their skin, gaze into their eyes, feed them, put on those insanely adorable baby clothes you so lovingly picked out, and bask in the glow of motherhood. It can be a magical time. But, it can also be an exhausting time. Your baby is likely feeding around the clock and the concept of days and nights may yet be a foreign thing. Your baby may sleep most of the day and
