Sleeping Through the Night


By: Jodi Mindell
$14.00

Mindell is another proponent of the cry-it-out method, but focuses more on consistent check-ins than the extinction method. The idea is that if you wait to check on your child until he is having a full-blown tantrum, he will learn that cranking up the tears is what will get you to come get him. So Mindell advises parents to check in briefly and to refrain from picking him up. For example, a simple pat and shush, or a few soothing words and then quietly leaving the room should be enough. This consistency will help your child learn to put himself to sleep, and Mindell believes your child will begin sleeping through the night within two or three weeks.
