Some babies do this quickly and easily. But many others have trouble settling down to sleep – or getting back to sleep when they''re a bit older. Some babies sleep seven hours or longer at an early age, while others won''re not sure whether your baby is ready for sleep training, ask his doctor.

How to prepare for sleep training

A review of 52 sleep studies using various methods published in the journal Sleep found almost all the techniques were effective if applied consistently.

Choose a sleep training method you can live with and follow through on. Be flexible about how you apply it and carefully observe how your baby reacts.
