Dr. Richard Ferber wrote the book ”Solve Your Child’s Sleep Problems” and published it in 1985. The book is one of the best-selling parenting books on the market. Many parents have come forward to swear by the Ferber method of getting babies to sleep through the night.
With many sleep books and parenting books to help babies sleep, the Ferber method is by far one of the most used and should be considered by all new parents. Many believe that the book should win awards for best parenting and sleep training book for babies.
The training uses a “cry it out” method that teaches babies and older children to sleep through the night and go to sleep at bedtime. The book focuses on getting your baby to sleep through the night without crying.
There are topics of letting your baby cry for short periods of time in order for them to learn to go to sleep.
The book has not won awards for sleeping or parenting books as some readers do not approve of the method and it is believed that they do not read the whole book to understand how the method works. Due to the book explaining that it is good to let a baby cry, some do not read about the bedtime routines and other topics that minimize crying.
The book also encourages children to take naps more easily. Going to bed at bedtime, sleeping through the night, and going back to sleep on their own when waking up through the night.
The ferber method helps you as a parent to distinguish between a child’s bedtime routines and sleep associations. Sleep associations are the main memories that a child associates with falling asleep. The book is believed by many to have to be nominated for awards and be read by more parents and children.
