4-8 Months: Sleepeasy Solutionswith Jen Waldburger
"Since becoming a mom, there is no parenting resource that I recommend more highly - or more regularly - than The Sleepeasy Solution." - Lisa P.
The time has finally arrived! If your baby is at least 4 months old you can now discover what thousands of thrilled parents already have. If your baby isn't sleeping through the night, you are not alone... and we can help! For the first time ever, the bestselling Sleepeasy Solution is now available as an online video course. Designed for parents of babies 4 to 8 months, our recipe for successful sleep learning - meaning that children learn to sleep quickly with a minimum of crying - contains two important ingredients:
1. A simple, customized sleep plan that includes step-by-step instructions for scheduling, environmental changes, and helping children change their sleep behavior, and
2. Plenty of support around the emotional aspects of teaching a child to sleep (and some inevitable frustration), to help children continue to feel loved, and to help parents remain consistent as their child learns. Parents who use our methods usually report that their child begins to sleep through the night in less than five nights, because the child receives clear, consistent responses that shape behavior quickly, and because she feels your loving encouragement while she learns. In a matter of days, children learn that they don't need assistance from their parentsùwith a bit of practice they become expert sleepers, and the whole family finally begins to get the rest they need. In specific detail, Jill & Jen walk parents through the steps to:
*Create a good schedule
*Set up a proper sleep environment
*Build a bedtime routine
*Reduce or eliminate night feedings
*Help your baby learn to self-soothe throughout the night.
Handouts include a 30-page workbook that includes your sleep plan, sample schedules for children of all ages and tips for how to keep sleep on track as your child grows. This course also features a special section on how to prevent SIDS.
Jill, Jennifer and The Sleepeasy Solution have been featured in a variety of media including: Good Morning America, The Today Show, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, CBS Evening News with Dan Rather, The Chicago Tribune, Parenting, Fit Pregnancy, and The Tyra Banks Show. They are the sleep experts on ModernMom.com and conduct lectures on children’s sleep for doctors and medical professionals at UCLA and at pediatric practices.

I started using the Sleep Easy Solution when my baby was 5 months old. She was waking up every 2-3 hours and I felt like I was losing my mind! I followed the method’s instructions EXACTLY and within 3 days my baby girl was sleeping through the night! 7pm-7am! It worked like a dream. A lifesaver. My daughter is 14 months old and still sleeping 12 hours a night and napping beautifully. I continue to recommend the Sleep Easy Solution to any parent and child in need of sleep. Giving your child the gift to be able to fall sleep on their own and put themselves back to sleep is a wonderful thing.
The Sleepeasy Solution should be in every new parent's toolkit. The experience and knowledge from working with so many families, is so valuable and they are able to teach you to read the signs and understand your baby's needs. Recognizing that sleep habits contribute to your child's overall well-being, is really life-changing. Following their program and advice, I have given my boys the gift of healthy sleep habits and gave myself a Great Parenting Achievement.
Using the Sleepeasy Solution method to help our son learn to sleep was literally life changing. He was one of the most challenging babies when it came to sleep and my husband and I were beyond exhausted. The book gave us an incredible amount of support and knowledge -- and in two days he was sleeping through the night and taking amazing naps! Three years later he is among the best sleepers of his peers, and this method remains one of our favorite go to items of all time. Since becoming a mom, there is no parenting resource that I recommend more highly - or more regularly - than The Sleepeasy Solution.
My baby was very underweight which meant that sleep training happened much later for us and was a little more complicated. Following the Sleepeasy Solution methods and creating a comprehensive sleep training and feeding plan was vital to my baby's sleep success and weight gain. The creators of this program understandthat sleep success depends on so many factors and they strive to address all facets of your baby's day in order for your baby to reach her sleeping potential. Thanks, Jill, Jennifer and the Sleepeasy Solution!
I am a very organized and scheduled person, so when it came time to sleep train my first child, I knew I would need guidance that I could understand and adhere too. After being introduced to the Sleepeasy Solution methodology, I quickly discovered that this sleep guidance fit perfectly with my personality. The methods are clear, simple and easy to follow and are most importantly, results driven. Both of my boys were "sleep trained" within days and thrived under the schedule we had put together. For all of these reasons, I would highly recommend Jill & Jen and their Sleepeasy class. You and your baby won't be sorry!
I had reached my wits end when I finally discovered the Sleepeasy Solution, it changed my life! Our baby went from waking up every hour to sleeping through the night in literally 48 hours, and what I thought would be a very painful experience was made incredibly manageable (and, extremely rewarding) by the concepts of this method. I can say, without hesitation, that the Sleepeasy Solution was one of the most impactful things I did for my child (and for my relationship with my husband!).
The Sleepeasy Solution method gives parents a great tool to guide you through, what can be, a very scary process. With every new developmental change, my daughter's sleep patterns changed and this method gave us confidence to help deal with changes.
We are on night 2 of the Sleep Easy Method for our second child. While its difficult, every cry reminds us that he will have the most amazing sleep habits like our oldest son, who did Sleep Easy in 4 days. The benefits of this method infinitely outweigh a few tough nights.
Using the Sleep Easy Solution changed my life! I am a mother of 3 and once my babies were ready to be sleep trained I followed the Sleep Easy Solution and it worked like a charm. On the first night, the longest my daughter cried on and off with scheduled check-ins was 26 minutes. I was so nervous because I knew I had to be consistant if it was going to work. The second night, my daughter was sleeping from 7 to 6AM. The Sleep Easy Solution methods helped everyone in my family get a better nights rest.
I'll admit it. I had my doubts. I thought "well that's nice that it works for other babies but no way is this going to work on mine". I basically tried the course to humor myself and to be able to say "hah I tried it and it didn't work, see." Well, i'll be the first to admit I was SO WRONG. Holy cow I am now on my 4th night of uninterrupted sleep and I feel like I have gotten my life back. The first night was tough. The second was a little easier, and then third was magic. The fourth? She let out one little squawk as we left and then boom she was out. THANK YOU THANK YOU!
You’re going to take the baby over to the crib, you’re going to get one last little burp if you want to. You’re going to give one last kiss and a hug and you’re going to say, “Nighty night honey. I love you. I’ll see you in the morning.” and you’re going to put him down awake. On a 10 scale; 1 is asleep, 10 is awake. He’s going to be a nine or a 10. That’s going to make you very nervous even just thinking about it. It’s really important that the baby is all the way awake so that he’s doing that last little bit of falling asleep on his own. If he doesn’t he’s going to have a much bumpier night and a lot more crying. Now you’re going to come out of the room, what happens next? Baby says, “I love this new plan. Thank you guys so much. This is the best thing ever.” Wouldn’t that be nice? More likely what’s happening, he’s crying. Why? There’s really two main reasons, one; I don’t care if you’re six months old, six years old or 60 years old, nobody like change, nobody is a fan and he’s no different. He’s wired just like we are to resist and protest that change. Number two; he’s feeling legitimately a little bit frustrated in this moment. He’s saying, “What are you guys talking about? I don’t know how to do this. Get back in here and give me that boob.” or, “Rock me some more the way you used to.” or, “Fly me around the room like an airplane.
