Any Parents Know Of The Weisbluth Method For Helping Children Sleep?

  • Sharebar

Anyone like or dislike this doctor’s advice? We’re wondering if 3 months is too early to try getting our twins (especially our daughter) on a normal sleep schedule?

    I loved his book “Healthy Sleeping Habits, Happy Child.” We used it with our twins, starting at about 16 weeks, but they were 5 weeks early, so I’d say 12 weeks would be okay, if they’re at a normal size.
    We used the modified CIO (crying it out) method, and it worked in just two nights.
    You must start a timer when the baby(ies) start crying because 1 minute seems like 10. At 10 minutes, you can go in to pat/rub on the back and do “shshshshshsh,” but you can’t make eye contact or talk.
    Get them calm, then repeat as needed.
    The first night we did this for TWO HOURS. It was hard, but the second night we did it for about 20 minutes, and there was no third night at all.
    Occassionally, one will test us, but we use that method and it has been a blessing with twins (as only you know).
    Ours are almost 18 months now and they sleep 12 hours each night (since 16 weeks).
    Feel free to email me if you have other questions.
    Oh, congratulations.

    My baby was on a sleep schedule at 6 weeks. The Weissbluth method simply consists of calming them down before bed and putting them to bed while they are drowsy. This is what we did, but then we let him “cry it out” using the Ferber method so he could teach himself to soothe himself back to sleep. After two days of this (plus he took two naps in the day) he was sleeping through the night. He is now 14 months and in a toddler bed with no problems.
    Remember though, every baby is different.
