Frequently Asked Questions

When is the best time to start sleep training?

Sleep training is a process that is generally applied to establish sleep patterns and habits for infants and young children. The optimal time may vary depending on the child's development and individual needs. However, sleep training can usually be started for babies from 5 months.

Babies usually start to develop more regular sleep habits around this age, and some start sleeping longer during the night. However, every baby is different.

Sleep training should be a flexible process according to the needs of the parents and the child. Before starting this process, it's helpful to consider:

1. Track your baby's development: Babies' sleep patterns and needs can change rapidly from birth. Keep track of your baby's sleep patterns and try to determine the best time to start sleep training when he is ready.

2. Evaluate the state of health: Your baby's health should be suitable for sleep training. If your baby is sick or has a special health condition, it is important to consult your doctor before starting sleep training.

3. Consider your own preparation: Sleep training is a process that requires patience and determination. If you or your partner do not feel ready to go through this process, it is better to wait a little longer.

4. Be careful not to interfere with other stressful situations: If your baby has major changes or stressful situations in his life (for example, moving, a new sibling, etc.), he may not be suitable for starting sleep training.

Ultimately, the best time to start sleep training depends on your child's development, health, and your readiness. Remember that every child is different, so it's important to be patient and understanding.

How soon can my baby complete training?

Just as every baby does not start walking at the same time in the same month group, the process of acquiring healthy sleep habits for each baby is different, just like this one. Some babies can adapt in 5 days, some in 10 days, and some in 20 days. At this point, the baby's temperament, parenting attitude, whether it is progressed by sticking to the process, illness, teething, and attack periods will also be effective. It is not correct to say an exact number of days.

At the end of the process, can my baby sleep on her own without support?

This is related to many factors. It is not a dream to have a healthy sleep at the end of education if you move forward in the process in a stable, determined and patient manner without returning to the old order and if you give the right messages to your baby.

Will my baby cry during the process?

We can interpret the crying of babies in two ways as cries of desire and need. Your baby may give certain messages by crying to let you know his physical and emotional needs. Apart from that, he may cry simply because he is bored and simply because he does not want to be put to sleep that way. The baby may cry a little, but our goal should be to calm down the crying points during the process and to move forward by meeting his emotional needs.

I am not in the same city or country as you, can we still work?

Of course. We serve our clients both in Türkiye and abroad.

Can I sleep train my baby myself?

Of course. Yes, although there are books and videos that guide us, it should not be forgotten that our feelings of motherhood can put the process in a dead end.

Will we go back to the old days after the training? Will the order be disturbed?

It should not be forgotten that babies are human just like us. One day may not last a day. While their brains develop while learning new things every day, sometimes these developments can negatively affect their sleep, they may become sick, they may teethe... The important point here is that if your baby started to sleep without support after education, if you do not go back to supported sleep no matter what, if you pay attention to the sleep and wake times, the order will not be disturbed.

Can I sleep training while breastfeeding?

Of course. Babies can be breastfed until the age of two, and if you are a mother who continues to feed her baby by breastfeeding during these periods, of course, you do not have to wean your baby from the breast while training.

Will we always stay at home during and after sleep training? Can my baby sleep outside too?

There should be no disorder in the stage of regularization while trying to establish a healthy sleep habits for your baby. This does not mean that you are always at home while you are setting up. Especially if you do at least a daytime nap or an evening nap in your bed and in your own order, why not! After the order is established? After graduation and the baby's sleep gain without support is provided, your baby can sleep anywhere if his temperament allows.

I am a working mother, can I sleep training my baby?

Of course. In fact, this process is even easier for working mothers with people like caregivers, grandparents, and grandparents who take care of the baby part-time. But the important point is that other people who are responsible for the baby's care, like you, remain loyal to this process.
