One fact that is very clear from all the research that I have studied is that there is no, ‘one size fits all’ technique to helping a baby get to sleep. I will explain the known reputable techniques and the pros and cons of each. It is your job to find out which one ‘fits’ your baby. If one doesn’t work, try the next one until you find a technique, or develop a hybrid that works for your unique situation. You will also find that as your baby goes through the different developmental stages, this technique will need reviewing and updating.
