The Ferber Method - An In-depth Look

The Ferber Method was invented by Dr Richard Ferber as a means of helping babies soothe themselves to sleep after crying. He explained more about this training in his book titled Solving Your Baby’s Sleep Problems. There are quite a number of misapprehensions about the Ferber Method as some parents think it is the wrong approach towards getting a child child.

There are still a lot of grey areas on that and it is not the objective of this post to recommend the sleep training method to any parents but as with all things, information is crucial. Therefore this post is aimed at providing as much information as possible about the Ferber method.

Dr Richard recommends that the Ferber method be employed with babies that are above 5 months old. Though infants are allowed to cry in his approach, it is only for specific lengths of time before receiving external comfort from parents. So parents can be rest assured that the training does not encourage abandonment.

Infants are also checked upon at intervals to ensure they are safe from external distress factors. One can also choose to use baby monitors to have an eye on their babies at all times.

First, give yourself a break. You’ve endured a long, and quite possibly, uncomfortable pregnancy.  Giving birth and staying in the hospital is an arduous undertaking.

Having prepared the nursery prior to your due date, the home coming is no doubt filled with fatigue and anticipation.  Take it one day at a time. Enlist a close friend or family member to assist in limiting the number of visitors. This is a time for your new family to begin the bonding process.  Just getting enough sleep and a long shower is probably pretty high on your list after taking care of a new baby.  When generous souls offer help, by all means accept.  Also accept the reality that while you’re going to make mistakes, your baby is going to be just fine.  They’re learning a new rhythm outside the womb as well.

No doubt there are items that have been forgotten or need to be replenished in these early weeks of bringing hour baby home. Take advantage of the awesome savings offered by GROUPON and head to BABIESRUS to stock up on necessities.  If a friend or family member asks to run an errand, by all means accept their generosity. The intervals between feeding, napping and diaper change happen so quickly, that along with minimal sleep, contributes to the sense of fatigue for new mothers. A touch of melancholy is also very normal. Don’t be too hard on yourself.

Take this period one day at a time and enjoy every moment. Many exciting years lie ahead. These will seem like the longest days and shortest years.  Remind yourself to stay in the moment. Best of luck to you, your new bundle of joy and your new family!
