There are a lot of things for new parents to decide on. How to setup their nursery, what stroller to choose and how they will deal with the inevitable sleepless nights ahead. Today’s post is going to focus on a sleep method that gets your baby to sleep through the night; it’s called the Ferber Method. Mothers who have successfully employed this method with their kids swear this method has made their lives a whole lot easier.
The internet is rife with countless tips and methods of getting a baby to sleep through the night but for some reason, the Ferber method seems to rank above all the other techniques for getting babies to sleep at night. Although this technique has garnered a large following, a few parents remain skeptical about trying it.
The reason this is, may not be unconnected to the fact that the Ferber method advocates baby-training; this simply means training babies to self-soothe by allowing them to cry for a pre-determined amount of time and then offering external comfort at a scheduled time. As harsh as this sounds, a lot of parents have found that it worked for them.
Of course, there are also a bunch of steps and rules one has to follow during the baby-training phase and so the next question would be – would this work for all babies? Probably not. A baby’s inability to sleep may be connected to some neurological or general health issues so it’s advisable you speak with a doctor before trying out the Ferber method.
Below is an infographic from that sheds more light on how exactly the Ferber method works.
It’s the 14h day we hit triple digit temperature. It’s seriously hot here, I tell you. In order to beat the summer heat, as we water our yard, I let my child go out there and enjoy the fun that water comes out from our manual sprinkler. I let her experience how it is playing with water while she is still a child. Someday she’ll remember doing it as part of her happy memory in her childhood just like I do, though my experience was way too different than hers.
When it rains, we managed to go out with all the neighbors’ kids my age to play in the rain no matter how cold we were we didn’t mind it as long as we enjoyed the water. That was part of my childhood I can never forget and honestly, I missed playing under the rain.
Jadyn nowadays just know how to strike a pose whenever she is being told by her mother to make a pose. I am glad she is cooperating with me hehe. It’s with my great pleasure taking a lot of photos of my little kid especially when she is all pink.
Just look at her in pink hat, glasses, shirt, leggings and slippers, isn’t she cute? She just look like a local tourist ehhhhhhhh…. Hmm I wish to make another baby girl just like her so good all the time so she can have someone to play with besides the dog.
Where else can you find a baby who at two years old already knows how to browse for videos on youtube? Don’t get me wrong, she only browse cartoons like mickey mouse and blues clues on there. That is my Jadyn, when bored, she gets on her or my computer and do youtubing ON DIAPER!
I took this photo on the left when we were in San Antonio, it was hot down there that is why she only wore diaper. But it’s cute I think.
