Yes, My Babies Sleep 12 Hours a Night

Michal Frischman

Skeptical? According to one mom, you can say goodbye (or good night) to sleepless nights with this easy training method.

Wednesday, May 04, 2016

I never quite know how to react when my friends start lamenting over their children’s sleep woes. “I was up for the day today at 3 a.m.,” one friend will grumble. “Well, my baby is teething — he woke up every hour on the hour like clockwork this week!” another will chime in. In response, there’s usually a chorus of sympathetic sighs, followed by more griping: “Just wait until your kid can climb out of her crib! At bedtime, my 18-month old jumps out every time I try to put her in.” Whenever these complaining sessions start, I nod compassionately — hoping no one will notice that, despite having a three-year-old son and one-year-old daughter at home, I’m actually quite awake. And, no, it’s not because I just drank a 16-ounce iced coffee (although that’s true, too). My kids actually go to bed easily and get a (shhhh) solid 12 hours of sleep a night. My older sister gets all the credit for my dreamy situation. When her oldest was born, she read a little book called Twelve Hours’ Sleep by Twelve Weeks Old: A Step-by-Step Plan for Baby Sleep Success bySuzyGiordano. My sister couldn’t get over how easy the method was to implement and how little time it took before her son was a world-class sleeper. The best part: Suzy’s technique didn’t call for abandoning screaming babies for long lengths of time.
