1 hours agoSleep training addresses both types of associations. “Sleep training is about having your baby learn the skill of independent sleep,” Traci says. “One of the main ways to do that is to get rid of negative sleep associations. Sleep training also allows your baby the time, space and opportunity to learn their own positive sleep associations.”

1. The Four S’s Sleep Training Method. The 4 S’s Sleep Training Method is based on the book The Baby Whisperer Solves All Your Problems by Tracy Hogg. This method focuses on recognizing the right cues to know when your child is tired and the importance of a winding down period, which gives the baby a chance to transition from activity to sleep time.
2. The Pick-Up-Put-Down (PUPD) Sleep Training Method. The PUPD method works by putting your baby down in the crib or bassinet drowsy but awake. If or when they cry, you need to pick them up and comfort them until they are calm and drowsy again.
3. The Fading (FIO) Sleep Training Method. The Fading Method consists in the gradual fading out of a sleep association like rocking or feeding. With this method, you continue to help your baby fall asleep but, over time, you gradually reduce and then stop doing it.
4. The Chair Method, or Sleep Lady Shuffle Sleep Training Method. This method consists in a parent sitting in a chair near the crib, until their baby falls asleep.
5. The Three-Minute Drill Sleep Training Method. The Three-Minute Drill sleep training method allows the parents to be involved, without requiring the constant involvement that pick up / put down and the chair method require.
6. The Ferber, or Controlled Crying Sleep Training Method. The Ferber or Controlled Crying method is not the same as CIO, but it can be fairly similar. It became quite popular thanks to the book Solve Your Child’s Sleep Problems by Richard Ferber.

1. Check and console (also known as the Ferber method, graduated extinction, progressive waiting or the interval method) There are many variations on the check-and-console method, but the general principles are the same: You want to continue to check on your baby at preset intervals but never feed or rock them to sleep, as that would mean they aren’t falling asleep on their own.
2. Extinction, or cry it out (CIO) The idea behind extinction (or full extinction to differentiate it from graduated extinction) is that you want to extinguish the behaviour (crying) by not responding to it.
3. Chair method. This is a very gradual sleep-training method ( McGinn gives her clients a two-week plan for implementation) and requires a lot of discipline on the part of the parents.
4. Pick up, put down and shush-pat. For babies younger than seven months, Garden prefers an approach where you stay in the room without giving them too much help to fall asleep.
5. Bedtime-routine fading. With the fading technique, continue with whatever method you were using to help your baby fall asleep (such as rocking or nursing), but decrease the amount of time you spend doing it until, in theory, you don’t have to do it at all.
6. Bedtime-hour fading. Not to be confused with the bedtime-routine fading technique described above, bedtime-hour fading involves putting your baby into the crib at the time they usually end up dozing off, and making that their new bedtime for a couple of nights, and then gradually moving it to an earlier time.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the best sleep training methods??

Here’s a review of some of the most popular sleep training methods: Cry-It-Out, aka CIO or Extinction. This is one of the most debated training methods out there. It involves letting your baby “cry it out,” if they cry at bedtime or the middle of the night until they eventually learn how to soothe themselves to sleep.

What is the fading method of sleep training??

With the Fading method, you continue to help your baby fall asleep (by rocking or feeding to sleep, for instance). But, over time, you gradually do less and less of the ‘work’ to put your baby to sleep, and your baby does more and more. Eventually, your baby is falling asleep independently.

Are there any sleep training methods that don't involve cry it out??

Yes, you read right. Sleep training methods that DO NOT involve Cry It Out! I had to put that on the title, and give some comfort to whoever is looking at sleep training their baby that cry it out (CIO) is not the only method.

What is the pupd method of sleep training??

The PUPD method works just the way it sounds: when it’s time to sleep, and your baby is fussing or crying in the crib or bassinet, you pick them up and comfort them until they are calm and drowsy. Then, you put them back in their crib to sleep, repeating this cycle until your baby is finally asleep.
