A Handy Guide To 5 Common Sleep Training Methods

ADVERTISEMENT

When you’re ready to start sleep training the kid – 10-12 weeks in and utterly sleep-addled yourself – is also when you’re least prepared to assess your options. This guide gives a concise explanationof 5 common training techniques, including “Fading,” “Pick-Up-Put-Down,” “Chair Method,” “Check-And-Console” (or “Ferber Method”) and “Extinction” (or “Cry It Out”). The technique you choose will depend on what you’re kid responds best to, so expect to try more than one (unless your kid sleep trains quickly and easily, in which case stop gloating).
