Sleep Sense Program: Posted in March 2012 as well. Has anyone used the Sleep Sense method of sleep training? Our son is 6 months old and next Monday we are. Sleep Sense. After some online sleep consultant research, I came across The Sleep Sense Program. Sleep Sense was created by Dana Obleman, who is a BC (woot!) local. The Sleep Sense Program: Proven Strategies For Teaching Your Child To Sleep Through The Night.
Savor the night feedings & cuddling because it ends so quickly. You will sleep the night again (well almost I still find myself waking for no reason). I nightweaned both of mine at 1. I also co- sleep (mny daughter who is 4 asked for her own bed a couple of months ago) so that too will end as well. I used advice from "The No- Cry Sleep Solution" by Elizabeth Pantley.
What Is The Sleep Sense Program Dana
I would wait until your son was a little older & just try to catch sleep when you can, you won't be able to do that if you have a 2nd. I always nursed my children to sleep & it is something you can gradually replace with other things, it is all a process. Minneapolis. April 0. At some point" doesn't happen at 7 months.. The reason is this: their metabolic changes are happening rapidly - they are growing like gangbusters, developing teeth, their brain neurons are firing all over the place from constant stimulation of new things.. Once he gets to 1.
J., don't plan on getting a "regular" night's sleep with any consistency until your baby is past teething (3 or 4 years), and even then, he will get sick and you will lose sleep for weeks on end. By now you have probably figured out that mother is exhausting. Don't worry, it gets better by degrees every day, and the whole things gets much easier (less exhausting) when your child turns four or five. By the way, letting a child 'cry it out' will only make him more likely to cling to you when you are not forcing him to do so. Children under the age of 3 don't understand where a parent goes when they leave the room because their brains are not developed enough to understand the idea of other rooms in the house, etc.
Because of this, when you leave the room your son will panic, especially if he cries and you don't come back. The best way to encourage abandonment issues in a child is to leave them crying. People (even doctors) who promote these methods of parenting are obviously not aware of this simple fact.
More advice ~ it's hard sometimes, but enjoy this baby stage as long as you can, even as exhausting as it is.. Minneapolis. April 0. I'm currently reading The no cry sleep solution by Elizabeth Pantly. I bought the toddler edition one since my son is 1. My husband read the cry it out one by Dr Ferber.
We have taken things from both books to do what is comfortable for us. We tried the cry it out first and it doesn't work 1. I bought the other one. So far I like it a lot. Minneapolis. April 0.
Sorry I didn't use that program, but this I know- -- do NOT nurse your child to sleep. They will start to relate falling asleep/sleeping with being with you & you'll never get them to fall asleep on their own or fall back asleep if they wake up during the night!!! Nurse, then do a bedtime routine, then put child to bed awake, but sleepy!!!! I was having problems with one of my girls when I switched their schedule around, then I remembered this & the second night she went right down & slept through the whole night (or if she woke up, she didn't wake me)!!! The best sleep advice I can give you is to stay on a consistent schedule and always do it in this order: eat, wake time, sleep then repeat! Don't put to sleep right after eating (unless nursing in the middle of the night)!!!
GOOD LUCK! answers from. April 0. 7, 2. 00. I am a mother of 4 and although it can be stressful and hard to let your baby cry, it is good for him to learn to self- soothe. By not allowing him to cry himself to sleep and providing him the opportunity to sleep in your bed, nursing whenever he feels like it is creating a security with him that will be difficult to break later on.
I sounds to me like he is using you as a "pacifier or nuk" in the night. My sister allowed her first born to co- sleep and it took 3 years to get her out of their bed. Babies cry. And you will not be doing your baby any harm in letting him cry for a while. April 0. 6, 2. 00. J., I am going to go against the grain here and tell you I did not like the Sleep Sense Program. If you have any common sense of your own (no offense to the people that liked the program) you can adjust your child sleep as you need to. I got this thinking it was going to tell me something I did not already know.
It was the same information that you can get from anyone here or your friends and family(for free). There was alot of crying it out used in the program and if you are up for that then just do it. You don't need a program to instruct you how. Do what works best for you and your child. It is not going to be easy but all will work out in the end. Good Luck! answers from. Minneapolis. April 0.
I swear by the book, "Secrets of the Baby Whisperer". It helped with both my children. They both sleep in their own beds all night long! They go to bed easily at 7: 3. They are 5 and 2 1/2 now.
Give it a try! answers from. April 0. 6, 2. 00. Yes, my daughter is 1. I did the sleep sense program at 1. I waited way too long. It worked like a charm by the second night.
She was sleeping in her crib all night, it was so fantastic. I was in the same boat you were. She would nurse falling asleep, then wake about 6- 7 times, and end up with me in bed, my husband would go on the couch (queen size bed). It was crazy. Was so glad I did this. I waited to do the naps, and still, at this age, she nurses to sleep for naps- am breaking that this week.
I suggest doing it ALL at once- you will be glad you did. Although, at 1. 5 months, she climbed out of her crib, so she is now in a toddler bed, with a gate at her door. Which, last week, she climbed over her gate. So, don't know what to do now. Anyway, they still have their occasional wakings, but it is so much better than before.
It is worth the $5. I was so terrified to try it the first night, but it is not as bad as I thought it was going to be.
Go for it!! answers from. Minneapolis. April 0. Oh J., I do so feel for you. It is really hard when they are little. Let me tell you what worked for me. I'm not sure if it will work for you but you can see if you like it. My hubby went off to grad school in another state when my baby was 8 weeks old.
I stayed home. Since he wasn't around, I had to put the baby on some type of schedule or else I wouldn't have been able to survive. Sleep deprivation and I do not work well together.) Luckily, my baby was the type of kid who works better under a schedule. It was difficult at first and took some weeks but then it also helped him sleep through the night. The key to my baby was that I had to make sure he 1)consumed a certain amount of milk (and later food) during the day. If he didn't, then I knew it would be harder for him to sleep through the night because he would be genuinely hungry. I was lucky because his room was on a different floor from my bedroom so I couldn't hear him crying unless I had the baby monitor on (I also had the kind which had a tv screen )and I had it positioned on the wall above his crib so I could actually see what he was doing in the crib.
So, when I had to do the "cry it out" method, I couldnt' hear him unless I turned on the monitor. So, if I decided he had to cry for 5 minutes, then 1. I just didn't have the monitor on for that time and then woudl turn it on afterwards. I'd put the baby down at 7 pm but then wake him (if he didn't wake up on his own) at 1. He wasn't really wide awake, still sleepy but it gave him the extra food to make it through until 7am. As he gained more weight, I found that he was able to make it for 1.
I was also pretty consistent with the naps and the feedings during the day. I also found that as he got older, he would need a certain level of stimulation and activity or he wouldn't be tired enough to sleep. I had the luxury of being able to do this because I became a stay at home mom (I had saved enough to keep myself home for 2 years while my hubby went off to school. We were lucky because his company paid for his grad school and technically kept him on the books.)Good luck! Minneapolis. April 0.
Try the book "Good Night Sleep Tight" by Kim West. It worked wonders for our daughter - and for my sanity. We only heard about it when she was 1. I wish we had used her ideas from birth. There is absolutely NO CRYING involved! It takes some time and patience to implement it, but it is so, so worth it.
Good Luck. answers from. Minneapolis. April 0. I have tried the Sleep Sense program and I think it worked great for our family. The crying part was a little difficult in the beginning and we had anout 2 months of pure hell but now our little girl (1yr) is a good predictable sleeper and we almost never deviate from the schedule. For us the key was consistency and the ability to follow the sleep wake cycles. Let me know if you have any more questions.
April 0. 6, 2. 00. J.,I have 4 children. The problem with todays parents is they think the child has to be in their bed. Number one this is dangerous (this can result in one of the parents accidently smothering the baby in their sleep - and trust me, I saw this happen when I worked in the ER... SIDS to protect the parents).
Number two, you will set up a hard to break pattern where they will think this is their sleeping place. I did this: When my babies were tiny infants, I placed their bassinette next to my bed. When they lightly fussed during the night, I was able to reach over to them and rub their tummy. This was calming. As they aged, and rebelled (ie: age 1.
I would go to them if they cried, but I would not pick them up. As a if they were clean and fed and not ill, then I would NOT pick them up.
