Get Quiet Nights

Tracy Spackman | Infant & Toddler Sleep Coach

A common question I get asked is, “Is it too late to sleep train my child?”

Well, if your child is 20, you might need more help than I can offer. But seriously, a great time for sleep training is between 6-9 months. For those who are very careful and use specialized, responsive methods like mine, 4.5 to 6 months can also work well. However, if you’re following a book technique, please wait until at least 6 months. You don’t really need to be in a hurry.

The longer you wait, the more challenging sleep training can become but only a little. Two-year-olds can be sometimes be particularly difficult, but I have a great method that works with time and patience. Even five-year-olds can learn to sleep better with the right approach. I’ve also had success with a few eight and twelve-year-olds.

If you’re ready to make a change and improve your child’s sleep, set up a free sleep assessment on the homepage. Hundreds of families have achieved much better sleep after working with me.
