This may sound a bit strange, but it’s my opinion that the holidays are the very best time of year to “sleep train” your child.

I know, I know. Things are busy, you’ve got shopping to do and parties to go to…

But here are TWO reasons why you should consider this:

Sleep Train Reason #1:

The Christmas season is the ONE time of year that pretty much everyone is able to take a few days in a row off work. This is a big one, because it frees up both you AND your partner to be able to fully participate in the process.

Translation: Your spouse can’t insist that he/she has to wake up early to go to work!

Sleep Train Reason #2:

You’ve usually got a lot of friends and family around… and they can help you out! If your sister is staying with you for a couple of days, feel free to ask her to take the baby out for a walk while you grab a nap during the day.

Tip: I’ve found that friends and family respond really well to something like this… “I’ve been doing some research, and we’ve decided to make some improvements to our son/daughter’s sleep. It should only take a couple of days, but do you think you could help me out by taking care of _________?”

(Just fill in the blank with a small job or two that would make your life easier. Maybe get them to make dinner for you, or do the laundry, etc.)

Is this information useful to you and your family? I would love to hear your feedback regarding your sleep routine. 

Look forward to conversing with you on Facebook and Twitter.
