How to Get Your Baby to Sleep Through the Night: 7 Books Explain the Most Common Sleep Training Methods

The Baby Whisperer


By: Tracy Hogg
$20.00

Hogg's technique is a gentler method than a cry-it-out technique that still encourages your baby to learn how to put herself to sleep.

Hogg recommends following the "E.A.S.Y" plan when getting your baby on a routine — eat, activity, sleep, and you. Essentially, your baby eats when she wakes up, plays and is active for a certain amount of time, and then while she sleeps, you rest and take care of yourself.

Once your baby is 6 months or older, Hogg recommends using the Pick-Up-Put-Down (PUPD) method. It requires you to put your baby to sleep awake and to walk out of the room. If she cries or fusses, walk back in the room and pick her up. As soon as she stops crying, put her down and leave the room. Continue this process until your baby puts herself to sleep.

Although this method requires a lot of patience, Hogg believes that eventually, your child will learn how to put herself to sleep alone.
