The goal of Babywise is for baby to sleep well, but the methodology is really through scheduling and consistency. Part of what you schedule and are consistent with is sleep.

The book mentions that self-soothing and independent sleep are important, but it really isn’t a sleep training book. It is a baby sleep book. Essentially, it entails getting your baby into a routine of eating, have a short wake or playtime, and then sleeping. This is a routine that is followed throughout the day in cycles. Once nighttime approaches, it becomes just eat and sleep, until they reach a.

There is no magic “number of sleep hours” that works for everybody of the same age. Babies initially sleep as much as 16 to 18 hours per day, which may boost growth and development (especially of the brain). School-age children and teens on average need about 9.5 hours of sleep per night.

  • My little girl never cried when she was born. The first two weeks we didn’t even know how her cry sound is. Now she is 35 days old it cries just a little bit. No more than 2,3 seconds but it’s hard to make her go to sleep. The only way we make her go to sleep is putting her in a trolley, putting her in my car and drive around. She gets calm when I pick her up on my hands but she never went to sleep when we put her in her bed we need to do one of those 3 thinks to make her go to sleep… I’m the father and my mom told me I was same till year 3 and we r kinda very scared about this cuz it make us so tired and pain in our backs I hope we will find a way to fix this. When i put her in her bed before she goes to sleep she cries a bit and starts making noises that shows that she is not happy and as soon as i pick her up she stops whiting 2,3 seconds that drives me crazy I know it’s not her fault and it’s our fault but I hope we fix this problem.

  • NEVER Sleep train a baby under 6 months!!! That dramatically increases the risk of SIDS! but more so never sleep a train a baby. Research shows major detriments for these youngest babies. See Dr. James McKenna’s book Safe Infant Sleep he references the study.

  • Oh my word, Cash is too cute. Belly kisses and those leg rolls, adorable, just want to give him a little squeeze. Much love from Canada, you have a beautiful family❤ my boys are 17/ 13 years but, l enjoyed watching you, and sharing with a few friends.

  • So much good info!! I hope to have grandbabies within the next year or 2!! I love all of your videos…you’re such a sweet lady!!!����

  • I totally agree with the fact that if we can make the baby sleep, the parents also can take enough rest and then they can do each and every thing happily…and lovingly for the baby and for others too…

  • Finally someone talked about those ridiculous tips on how to get a baby to sleep: a swaddle isn’t a must, neither is darkening of the room, I see these tips everywhere and they’re not helpful

  • People are calling and inviting her from ����, ���� and ��. Yeah right!!! I would not let her anywhere near my baby. This old trick about letting a baby cry and soothe themselves is just OLD. Babies are a precious �� from God and precious �� are kept very close to your heart ♥️. The idea of leaving the baby crying is so heartless. Who knows if my baby’s diaper is full or maybe he/she’s just scared calling on me. How much stress is being put on the baby, I can’t begin to imagine. I can go on and on about this!!! I think you guys know where I am coming from.

  • There are several components to guides for a baby to sleep. One plan I discovered that successfully combines these is the Calmer fixer blueprint (check it out on google) definately the most incredible plan that I have ever seen. Check out all the great info.

  • There is actually very little information in this video if you are looking to learn about how to sleep-train your baby. The interviewer clearly isn’t used to giving televised interviews, either.

  • With all humility: Your own baby will be a better teacher than this! Trust your intuition, breathe with your baby and see that we are all different.
    Co sleeping is great! Maybe not all the time.

    But thank you for underlining the importance of napping during daytime. YES! It s great if they can calm down during day time until they are school kids.

  • This method of so-called tough love sleep training is no secret. As mentioned below you are basically allowing the child to scream themselves to sleep and if you can sleep through that, Wow! When you do not respond to a baby over a certain period of time some babies longer than others you are basically signaling to them that their needs will not be met. Therefore it’s useless for them to try to communicate their needs to you because you are not listening. Eventually, the child stops trying, not because they are calm but because you have conditioned them to not express discomfort because no ones coming. Do you lack to feel ignored and not listened to? The Creator has given you and your child a connection. Everyone has advice. I listened and ended up sleeping with my son on my chest most nights. When he was 2 years old he slept in his own bed after we read books together. He had no problem sleeping by himself and I would allow him to read before bed.

  • NOT A SLEEP EXPERT. She was a nanny and employed CIO. That’s it. As a mental health clinician, I’m appalled by sleep training culture. This is great for parents, but harmful to infants and young children who are actually sleeping NORMALLY, as infants and young children should. This “expert” has no background in developmental psychology and works off of myths perpetuated by this popular industry here in the West. Babies CANNOT SELF SOOTHE from a heightened state of stress and sleep is a biological function that CANNOT be taught!!! Infants require co-regulation with their caregivers. This is science, not opinion. PLEASE, do not follow this “tough love” or CIO method with your newborns, older infants, or toddlers. There are many ways in which you can make changes to infant sleep, how you soothe, etc. that is based on maintaining attachment and co-regulating with baby so that they’re not flooded with cortisol to the point of passing out or what parents believe to be “learning to self-soothe and sleep”. Some actual experts with credentials and helpful methods that do not harm babies: Dr. Tracy Cassels, Evolutinary Parenting; Dr. Deborah McNamara; Dr. Gorden Neufeld. If you’re looking for extra support, has a directory of sleep coaches that are trained by her using attachment based methods guided by Dr. Neufeld’s work and sleep science. These sleep coaches DO NOT SLEEP TRAIN and still help parents gain knowledge, helpful tools, and get more rest too. If you need some support from a like minded community, check out The Beyond Sleep Training Project group on Facebook. And if you happen to be a parent reading this who has received the message that you are ruining your baby’s future sleep by responding to them at night, soothing them in a way that feels good to you both, nursing them to sleep, etc….DOT NOT BUY INTO THE BS! You’re doing an amazing job! Responsive parenting, both day AND night is key to healthy development and secure attachment. These are not bad habits! ALL CHILDREN if given time with no intervention with eventually reach the developmental milestone of connecting sleep cycles and sleep through the night. Ages for reaching this developmental milestone varies, as babies are all different and not robots. There are some specific cases where some underlying factors are present (oral restriction, apneas, allergies, etc) that would prevent this and can actually cause problems for your child’s sleep. But sleep training is not the solution to this. Identifying and working on these specific factors is. Best Wishes!

  • what do you do with your breats and the breatmilk when the baby sleep so many hours? My baby can sleep 10 hours now, and im kind a strugling what to do with that 😉

  • Babies have multiple needs when they come to us. Many being emotional, love that baby as long as you can. They all learn to sleep eventually! I am an Early childhood graduate but don’t claim to know everything. I believe a parent results in much selflessness and its a long term journey. My eldest had a difficult time sleeping, he hardly slept as an infant and would work him into a frenzy if left to scream. He now has a business degree from Yale and was socially very competent. I’m not in total agreement with her on everything but I am with her in regard to her swaddle theory. Babies naturally want to suck their fingers/hands which actually releases endorphins in their brain and when confined under a tight wrap it deprives them from their basic instincts. One last thought, animals are trained, children are nurtured. ��

  • I used Susan Ubran’s HWL methos from her book ( found it here ), not even knowing put up put down exists! But know it seems pretty similar, still better I think. Guide in a nutshell everything you need on just few pages.

  • I never let my baby cry longer than a minute for any reason. He’s now a confident and calm 5 month old that sleeps through the night and plays alone for 15 minutes at a time.

  • Actually it’s a fact that anything over 5 minutes of crying for a newborn to 6 months old causes brain damage… over 10 minutes of crying for any age over 6 months causes brain damage so this is not a good way to sleep train a baby…

  • There’s one “S” Missing “skin to skin” laying on the couch or wearing baby on a baby carrier…they stay asleep for hours! It’s actually my favourite! Get stuff done, they sleep…win win

  • My daughter started sleeping through the night at 10 weeks, and then started waking up every 2 hours, and then started sleeping through the night at 12 months!

  • great advice. my second was easier also. I love a routine. my pediatrian said water around 6 months at night. I did and she stopped asking to see me at night

  • I was doing the cry it out method and it was working wasn’t so worried about the crying but now that she is 9 months and her cries are more stronger and I get anxious I won’t be in the room but I get worried and come get her

  • This is totally wrong in my eyes.
    I’m not an expert, I just have one baby. But we never let him cry and he’s falling asleep all alone in his bed.
    What we’ve done is:
    not letting him fall asleep while eating (just make some noise to wake him up if he falls asleep, bring him to bed and let him fall asleep in bed)
    use a pacifier to help him calm down in bed. Take it off when he’s sleeping.
    calm him down in the arms when he’s too nervous to fall asleep on his own, put him in his bed just before falling asleep
    sing slowly and quietly or whisper while maintaining his arms alongside his body while he’s trying to fall asleep (otherwise his own movements disturb him).
    at some point, stop singing/whispering and breathe “loudly” and very slowly close to him as long as he’s not fully sleeping.
    He’s now 6 months old. It took 5 months of this sleeping help and now I can put him awake in bed, give him a kiss and close the door, he will sleep in by himself. (Unless he’s not tired enough => he won’t sleep or there were lots of people talking to him just before going to bed => he will need some time in the arms in the dark to calm down before sleeping in on his own).
    Good luck to other parents!

  • There’s certainly a lot of spoilt toddlers/ babies who scream because their parents keep picking them up through the night and they don’t learn to soothe on their own

  • Not certain about the points made but,if anyone else needs to find out about baby sleep medicine try Calmer fixer blueprint (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now )? Ive heard some awesome things about it and my co-worker got excellent success with it.

  • Yeah I mentioned to the doctor that my baby seems to need movement to fall asleep otherwise he keeps jumping and twitching. She told me it’s me who has hom like this. Put him down to sleep. He won’t like it for a couple days then he’ll get used to it.

    See me putting Mr down that night. My boy screamed for half an hour and began to hyperventilate. 3 months old. At this point I wasnt willing to lose my baby over some sleep.

  • Can u come help me plz how do I get my over tired 2 month old son to sleep with out flinching? Cause he fliches him self to wake him self up

  • This is terrible advice. Has this woman ever heard of attachment theory??? My god! Pick up a psychology book! It is NOT good to let your baby cry it out. Your baby will not trust you. This will affect their absolute to form secure and stable attachments for the rest of their life! What a terrible woman. We coslept with our son for the first two years of his life and he sleeps perfectly since two months old! What a crock of sh*t!

  • isn’t it astounding that the old methods worked. Those Babies grew up with pride and built a country such as ours. Now with all of the excess new parenting BS we get Snowflakes who need safe spaces and tons of tissues whenever things don’t go their way.

    Routine and Discipline are the key for maturing and it starts after birth.

  • This woman is not helping at all, she doesn’t give much details about how to get baby to sleep. If she’s such an expert she should answer her questions properly instead of bla bla bla… Just going around the bush!

  • It’s not hard to put a baby to sleep. If it’s full, changed and not in pain then sleep will naturally follow. Don’t need a man to tell us that.

  • Literally looked up sleeping tricks cause my son wasn’t having any part of any kind of sleep and 3:26 into this video he’s knocked TF out!!! �� This woman is either a Saint or that’s one hell of a coincidence �� I didn’t even do anything different except for clicking the video and BAM!! Z’s for days! Lmao

  • My baby just turned six months. And she wakes up once a night for a bottle. I would like to have her sleep all night. May have to give this a try.

  • What about newborns, like 2 weeks?different than a baby. Where there are no other methods of stimulation, or play time. Where every moment awake, that is not eating, is crying.

  • What do you do if baby doesn’t it make it the last stretch before the 7pm feed? Mine keeps falling asleep around 6 and I do everything to try and keep him up but he won’t��. Do you just let him sleep and feed him at 7 or feed him at 6? I literally try everything to wake him but he just gets tired and cries.

  • Putting baby to
    Sleep is easy but keeping the baby asleep is the main issue my baby wakes up after 2 mins after i put her to
    Sleep ��������

  • I NEEDED THIS! I’m currently trying to sleep train my 8 month old who was formerly co sleeping in our bed, because he was EBF. And my hubby was also on the couch. I’m definitely going to look into this!! Thank you!!

  • This may sound weird but my mom told me as a baby, I would actually sleep all night and day. I have an older brother and my mom had her routine with him when he was a newborn programmed. So when my mom had me she would expect me to do the same and wake up at nights. Surprisingly she told me I slept a lot, she even thought I was sick because I barely ate and would sleep all day and night. I was fine and healthy. Lol even right now I could sleep all day and night.

  • Key to this is stimulating your baby as much as possible so that by the time it’s bedtime they so tired, even if you do the put down and exit method, the duration of them crying it out is not so intense and long, they end up putting themselves to sleep rather quick. Though I agree with Vivian’s sleep training I don’t particularly recommend It for new borns up until 4 months maybe 5 depending on your baby then it’s ok to start sleep training.

  • Her explanations are horrible and she doesn’t sound like a professional. This is so difficult watch, she speaks so slowly.. exit video

  • I really believe that nature has developed crying and the habitsvof a baby on purpose. I sleep with my child in one bed, i believe these connections will be there to trust me as a parent, the child doesnt feel stressed, abamdoned and terryfied

  • All ive ever needed is a fan. (All year round) obviously not pointing it at them unless its hot enough night to warrant it. My daughter has slept beautifully with it for 3.5 years now. Barely a peep out of her over all that time. ����

  • not a good ‘teacher’…she didn’t share anything with us but her ego… just a know it all, her way or the highway…classic disconnected authoritarian. Learn from your baby. Each baby is a unique sentient Being. that’s my humble opinion based on my own experience

  • Is it true that we should wake up the baby at night for nursing? My mom said that the sleep feeds the baby lol and he/she will wake up when there is actually hunger,so no need to wake them up? Please clarify it:) thanks

  • My baby started her own routine at 3 months and I encouraged and followed her, but I am still with her changing her nappy and feeding her when she needs. Even though we are old enough we still feel hungry in the night, how can you expect a just born to sleep overnight with no feed and wet nappy.. it’s sad.. anyways every kid is gona learn to sleep on their own when they are ready.

  • Not sure why everyone is complaining, I found this so useful and I have a 2.5 yo that still wakes up multiple times a night AND Cosleeps!!!!!!!

  • My baby is 14 months and just starting to sleep longer during the night. We never left her to cry it out, it was too distressing and never worked, she just worked herself up. We just tried to establish a good routine and even nighttime wake ups were short. Baby slept in a crib or cot next to our bed with the side off (so cosleeping but in separate beds). She sleeps in her sleepyhead and I think that makes her cosy. Shusshing and lullabies were important for her to calm her down and realise it was time to sleep. Now she still has lullabies but we’re able to say goodnight and leave the room and the lullaby helps her self settle to sleep.

  • My babies slept thru the night from 4 months. Got to train them early. Many people are the only ones who can stand their kids at night bc the parents came no structure.

  • Child #1 slept through the night at 6 weeks. He went from the bassinet to the crib within 2 weeks of birth. Child #2 slept through the night at 3 months but he was a horrible nurser and I co slept with him and I was so sleep deprived I thought I was going to die. My parents took both kids, I slept for 36 hours straight and #2 slept through the night the first night with them. All kids are different and you never know what you get. Our key to success was routine. Cute kids!!

  • This video couldn’t have come at a better time. My baby is almost 3 months and we’re going to consider transitioning him to his crib at 4 months. I’m trying to mentally prepare myself for this, but it’s so sad to have them leave your room. Cash is so cute, especially when he’s trying to crawl. Those chunky little thighs!

  • My baby made his own sleep time when he was about 2 months old and he doesnt need to put down to sleep bcz he has his own schdule which is amazing…we cosleep and i don’t understand the meaning of tough love and self soothe??how can such a small baby handle soo much mistrust??? Plus they dont need to sleep through the night….

  • This lady is really good her sleep training work. as hard as it is to leave baby down, and let them cry it out, parents do need down time too. So long as your baby is fed, clean, and nothing is harmful in their crib, happy and healthy I don’t see why not. 4 months on is a good time to start sleep training.

  • I have been looking for reviews about her program and was surprise you had a video about it and Im happy!!! Im your follower and completely trust your word. My baby is 4mo old (my first) and his pediatrician has given me green light to sleep train and Im looking for help. He most of the times will fall asleep with a pacifier but will wake up 2x at night or more. Which package did you get and why? Im not sure if to go with the cheapest or if its worth paying double for the complete package. Thank you!!!

  • Hi everyone, maybe somebody can help me.. My baby just turned 7 months, he is bottle fed since 4 months and eats solid foods twice a day. So recently he’s been really good at naps, I do eat-play-sleep-play, he always falls asleep on his own. At nighttime as well. But when he wakes up he doesn’t fall back to sleep. I don’t understand why he’s not settling himself again when he wakes up during the night, because he CAN fall asleep on his own. Every sleep training says like “your baby has to learn to fall asleep on his own, then he’ll sleep through the night”…am I the only one?? He wakes every 3h but he’s not hungry. I’m not expecting him to sleep 12h but at least 6..

  • By her saying tough love she means allow them to learn how to self sooth themselves of course after every need has being taken care off.

  • i live in arizona and went to the Taking Cara Babies newborn class when I was pregnant. My daughter is 4 months old now and has been sleeping 10-12 hours per night since about 10 weeks old. That class is amazing and so necessary!! She knows what she is talking about people!

  • this is my first video watching of yours. your first 5 months sound exactly like mine. except nolan is 10 months and still co sleeping lol

  • I’m currently at my wits end with sleep training. I am at a loss but there is no way I can pay $200 for that program ): I’m going to keep trying to do things the old fashioned way.

  • I did this with my first, she is a great sleeper still at 12. Ps she is 4 grades ahead….. her techniques sound harsh but they work.

  • my daughter is going on 9 months and we co-sleep and bed share, I also still breastfeeding, we share a room at the moment, its hard to break it. I wish I would have done it earlier.

  • Although I too agree with much of this methodology, as both a mom and a Family Nurse Practitioner, I beg each of you to speak with your child’s pediatrician before adopting any kind of sleeping and feeding program, including this one. Some babies will NEED to continue night feedings for much longer than others and it is important to not taper off, stop, or change the frequency of your feedings without first consulting your doctor. Children are not universal and should not all follow the same rules, program, or have the same expectations. For many babies, 12 hours is far too long too go without eating no matter how old they are. All that said, you have an absolutely beautiful family and I enjoy your videos.

  • I decided on sleep training at 6 months. Earlier I didn’t even have sleep routine, so there was some work to do. I chose Susan Urban’s HWL method from this short guide ‘How to teach a baby to fall asleep alone’ that I got online ( ). I am very glad, it turned out to work very fast! Should have used this sooner.

  • So so so sooo helpful!!! thank you very much for sharing. Now I know what’s wrong with my twins. We live in a really small place and its very difficult to us to keep a routine… they go to bed around 10 and sometimes they wake up several times. but I have to admit they are sleeping better. thanks againg!!! ❤

  • My daughter is 17 months old shes a big milk baby she wakes up multiple times a night she drinks about 2 to 3 bottles of milk a night im a lil nervous not giving her milk idk how to wean her off it?

  • Thank you for your tip my grandbaby is 19 months but her parents let her say up at all hours so now she is say with us so I’m going crazy because I love to have time for my husband and I are going to try this..��

  • the Vaave..,for a lovely sleep.Wish u take care…of your health.and wish we were together to drain..our emotions.Its..up to you..,am..healed.., receive..all your feelings..Good…or

  • Girl I swear you have the cutest little boys!! Cash should be on a baby magazine he’s so darn cute with his little rolls ❤️�� love from Ny

  • my daughter is 6 months old and will sleep from about 8pm to 530am and cry.  We do not want to get her up until 645am.  What did you do when you little one would wake up about an hour before its time to get up?

  • I envy you. �� I’m still having sleep issues with my 5 year old & my 1 year old HATES her crib all of a sudden. I’m so sleep deprived right now. Great video & great tips!

  • I’ve always wanted to ask but didn’t want it to come across wrong. I see Cash sleeps on his belly, but it’s not advised babies do this until past 12 mos to reduce risk of sids. At least that’s what my doctor said. I was just curious, is Cash set on tummy sleeping? Just curious. I know we all just do what works, I promise no judgement ❤️.

  • My son is 20mos now so we’re well past sleep training but I watched every minute of this video anyway. You’re so cute, such a good mom, and so talented. I look forward to your videos mostly because you’re so authentic. I wish we lived in the same state so we could be friends lol

  • I have one question so maybe somebody can help me. I have baby boy 7 m and half. He is sleeping great! He is sleep trained and sleeping for 12 hours but he is still waking up for one feeding. And I can tell he is hungry. After bottle he will easy fall back a sleep. So I wondering if I should wean him from feeding or let him wean by himself and wait for it. It doesn’t bother me to feed him but it was around 6 am an now he is up some night at 4 and I don’t want start bad habits so I trying to wait with feeding closer to 6 but of course I’m not sleeping that time. And I can’t figure out what’s the problem and why he is waking up so early for feeding. Maybe it’s leap 6 problem IDK.

  • All the new research on infant brain development DOES NOT SUPPORT Cry based sleep training. This is a crucial time of brain development, creating the foundation of mental health, emotional intellegenceeverything! Babies need parental co-regulation to reduce cortisol levels. Sleep training is barbaric and does not support healthy development. Seek out an Infant Sleep educator like me to get support in your own wellbeing and self-care as your baby waking at night is normal and healthy!

  • Hi I new!! I love so much your video, I have a 8 months baby boy and is very hard at night’s I’m so tired because he still breastfeed..and I’m a mom of 4 too.. thanks for your videos

  • Newborns and infants should get up in the night to eat and be changed, but she is saying don’t use sleep props that they become dependent on to fall asleep, they have to learn to to fall asleep on their own and put themselves back to sleep on their own unless their is a need to eat, etc.

  • Do you think Cash’s teething necklace helps? I’m wanting to get one for my little girl and was curious about them. Where did you get yours?

  • I am due with my 2nd in a few weeks, and the lack of sleep I have to look forward to is so daunting ���� I definitely struggled with my first one (she finally slept through the night at 10 months)… I’m really hoping this one goes more smoothly ���� thank you for the heads up about this program!

  • Is taking cara babies a cry it out method? My 8 month old is stilllll waking up every two hours to comfort nurse and we definitely need a change. We’ve tried a few methods but haven’t had any luck. I’m not a big fan of him crying because he won’t give up lol.

  • Great tips! The Taking Cara Babies program sounds very good. I’m not having anymore babies, but I wish I knew of the baby sleep sack and baby bath seat. Those are awesome!

  • When u feed cash solids do u have to pump? Or is ur supply get used to not feeding him? I’m a FTM mom and my baby will start solids at 6months

  • a new born is not supposed to sleep through the night, and they will do it when they are ready, my baby girl has slept with me ( co sleeping ) ever since she was born, she wakes up at night? Sometimes she does, sometimes she doesn’t, but she has never cried at night, she wakes up, eats and goes back to sleep no problem at all, we both sleep, and im not torturing my baby by letting her cry when she clearly needs me… also babies need to eat when they are hungry and get changed when they are wet… If lack of sleep bothers you that much, its easy, don’t have a baby!!

  • I’m so tempted to sleep train coz I’m tired of drinking gallons of coffee everyday �� but my gut is telling me that I should follow my baby’s lead and she will naturally sleep through the night at her own time. Which is working she only wakes up once now to dream feed, she’s 4 months old. She will wake up a few times if she didn’t get as much milk during the day. Also slowly making her get used to the crib, my baby loves smelling me when she’s sleeping ��

  • Super excited for this video! My daughter is almost 6 months old and is not sleeping through the night yet, so this is much needed! Cash is so adorable��

  • Wow, such mean comments on here! The lady actually gets Paid to teach parents how to get their babies to go to sleep and stay a sleep. Yet, I bet no one else on here commenting mean things does!!??!! Nobody said to let the babies cry so long that they’re deeply stressed. Good grief, use adult common sense people. Geeze! Your putting words in her mouth. Btw, if anyone here was so great at this they wouldn’t have come here to find out in the first place. Good show. Tyfs!

  • There is plenty of research that letting a baby cry it out does not teach them to self soothe. Although they stop crying, their cortisol levels stay elevated. They don’t learn to relax, they just learn that no one will be there for them. She keeps insisting there is no damage, but there is plenty of evidence that there is extra stress and attachment issues. We all know the effects of stress on adults, imagine the effects on a baby who doesn’t know how to regulate emotions yet. This wasn’t helpful…

  • So are people’s babies waking up “crying” through the night? Are the babies wanting to stay awake and not go back to sleep after you change and feed them? I don’t like being woken up 2-3 times a night to feed and change baby, but he doesn’t wake up crying. He just grunts and wiggles and I know he needs to drink milk. I nurse him for 5-10 mins then he goes right back to sleep. Maybe he’s not super hungry, but maybe thirsty. Are other babies doing this and sleep training is to make them stay asleep for 10 hours without waking up for a drink and a clean diaper?

  • I heard that there was something called sleep training. It is supposed to help your baby to get on the right schedule when it comes to sleeping. I want to know if anyone has heard about this.

  • My infant doesn’t care about his Paci during the day and will sleep but at night he becomes obsessed with it but it falls out and he screams and gets frustrated so I’ve been up all night holding it in his mouth for him and I’m not getting any sleep and he is up all night. Any tips?

  • Thank you for the tips ����
    I also would like to share one: his kind of song with nature sounds… she feels soooo relaxed wh she listen:

  • Nahhh its our first time to have baby, me and my wife have barely slept this past 2 weeks. We would be lucky enough we get 2 hours of sleep.

  • Hello baby is 7 days old and he cries a lot because he feels too hungry and I feed him 40ml milk through feeding bottle but he still cries and ask for more. Can you please suggest how I can calm him with tht much amount of milk, also he is asleep most of the time during day and wakes up at around 3-4am and doesn’t sleep than which really disturb our sleep.

  • If something related to ur baby doesn’t feel right. It is not right. Cry it out is no where near to right. It is better to have baby waking every 2 hrs than letting them cry on there own.

  • I remember when I used to watch this 9 months ago, when my baby was 1 month old……time flies so fast. Now I’ve started a channel with activities for babies ��

  • Why i get this video as recommended for me….although it is super nice but why it is being recommended to me…….this blew up my mind…

  • Yes. This took skills and right way to do to so it doesnt lead to shaking syndrome or else. Been a neonatal nurse for ten years now really teaches me a lot.

  • I’m taking some tips here although I don’t agree with everything, exactly. A routine definitely needs to be put in place, respect the babies needs and their need for structure. Also, I do think sleeping in their own bassinet every time they nap so they are used to it just makes sense. We do not be co sleeping, it just doesn’t make sense in our situation but the baby is in the bassinet by our bed. I try to be practical and intuitive about crying. I don’t think all crying is the same and some self soothing (all though not all!) is wise. But our little one knows we are near and that his cries are heard. I keep the baby with me as much as possible and in my arms and care as often as possible especially during their active hours.

  • Exactly because. My one month old baby wakes up as soon as we switch of the desert cooler my baby sleeps better in the constant sound of exaust fanof desert cooler

  • Play some 10-15 Quran, chapter Yasin in particular, at the time when your baby is calm and she will be calmer for longer period of time spevailly ar night. The reason being is Quran is comforting soul and a comforted soul, obvious for some, has direct automatic impact on relaxing the body. Try it and share your experiences whether or not it works.

  • I don’t have kids. I’m single. Why am I watching this �� You know what, I’ve always been good with babies. This adds to my repertoire. Silver lining!

  • One thing babies do better with swaddling is sleeping soundly, but also dying in their sleep. Yes, lo and behold, babies actually seem to not benefit from not being able to move. But I mean, if you think your baby’s life is worth risking for a good night’s sleep, good on ya!

  • I have a 2 year old daughter I would like you to meet. You might want to practice putting wet feral cats with rabies to sleep before you give it a go with her.

  • i have a 15days old baby. he sleep in our bed. he keeps on waiking up in the evning. and i feed him. and i check if his back is hot and wet.

  • I heard that there was something called sleep training. It is supposed to help your baby to get on the right schedule when it comes to sleeping. I want to know if anyone has heard about this.

  • She says that if you keep a baby awake longer it will still wake up same time in the morning, not true. My 8 month old will sleep 12 hours. Wakes for nursing in the night, which I’m trying to break but if she goes to bed at 9pm she will sleep till 9am I have to wake her up sometimes.

  • Do any of you breastfeed? I could never go 12 hours without feeding him! That would completely screw up my milk supply. Also babies cluster feed when they are going through a growth spurt which is necessary to build up my supply for his growing demands so the 4 hr between feeds wouldn’t work for those moments. This might work for some people but I trust in my babies instincts. It’s a beautiful symbiotic relationship❤️

  • My child was doing so good sleeping through the night until she was 6 months now she is 9 months and continue waking up every two to threes hours to nurse.. I need help Im sooo sleepy and tired �� when she will cried so hard if I dont nurse her and will wake up everybody. Please helpppp ����������������

  • My youngest of three is now 24 years old. This method hs been around for so long and it works! All of my boys slept their age (in months.) For example, NY 5 week old slept 5 hours continuosly. My 6 week old slept 6 hours etc. All of them slept 12 hours at 12 weeks. All of them were very different children and yet it worked universally. Total blessing!

  • How can you not cuddle your baby at 1-6 weeks old??? They just got here. They need all the cuddles they can take. My 3 week old is already sleeping 4/5 hour stretches at night, she likes her sleep like her mama

  • Thanks for the video but my method of hitting them with a baseball bat still works like a charm, I love how cute they look when they’re asleep��

  • I had to paused the video and went to Amazon to buy the book. Mi 8 weeks old boy is sleeping through the night but he wakes up every 4 hours for feeding. I hope this book will help us!!! Thanks from a tired mummy ��

  • My son turned 6 months yesterday! He goes to bed the same time as Cash and sleeps until 4:30 then eats and back to sleep till 6:30 or 7. Will he drop that feeding over time? I feel like most the time he is actually hungry lol

  • My baby is almost 6 weeks and I am ordering this book today! He is formula fed. Did she recommend in the book how many ounces for each feeding to get them going longer between feedings? Right now he is going two to three hours between feedings. Often during the day it’s more like two or 2 1/2. I give him almost 3 ounces per feeding.. any tips you can give on that would be great! It will be a few days until I get the book!

  • Ashlyn please help if you can I’ve read the book and am implementing baby boot camp (19 weeks) but all of a sudden my baby is waking up every hour after the night feed…. what do you advice or is this normal? did it happen to you? I’m using the toolbox but it’s happening so often now. thanks!!

  • My baby is 6 weeks Friday and I’m going to order this book and give it a try. He’s sleeping around 8 for about 4.5/5 hours, but I want it to go longer!

  • Hello, I’ve read the book but I didn’t understand weather I have to wait until my son’s is Eatting the full six oz at all of his four feedings until I can slowly start to take away from the night feedings? He is starting to eat less at his night feedings on his own.

  • I’ve got a friend that was telling me about this book and her routine for her little boy. I did order this book yesterday and started trying the every 4 he feedings yesterday as my little guy was still eating every 2.5-3hrs and is 8 weeks old. I had a question until my book gets here….u started him on a 9 to 9 schedule but he slept passed 1am ( 1:50am) which would change his whole 4 hr schedule. Do I wake him every 4 if he is sleeping or how does that work?

  • I found your review when researching the book:) Glad to hear this is very achievable!! I was wondering what was your napping schedule like when trying to achieve eating every 4 hours? Vs. now that she sleeps through the night? I have twins and one can go 3.5-4 hours and and the other is more like 3-3.5hrs. The books schedule shows activity time before the 11am feeding… I feel like my girls always wake up starving from a nap and there would be no way to distract them for an hour.

  • Same experience here! this book/method worked like a charm for us with my baby boy! Following the Baby Bootcamp we got him sleeping 10 hours by 10 weeks old and finally reaching the 11 hours of sleep (12 hours without feeding) by 12 weeks old, just like the book promises!
    Still to this day, he’s almost 8 months old and we still follow the same schedule (feeding every 4 hours only by day, sleeping 12 hours at night) he knows how to soothe himself back to sleep if he awakes, he wakes up without crying, he takes short naps during the day and overall is a very healthy, happy baby!! with happy, well-slept parents!!
    I HIGHLY recommend this!
