But why am I surrounded by moms who are anxious for their kids to hit the 4-month mark so they can sleep train? I've had two conversations in as many days about this.
One friend's baby was born in January (so just turned 2 months old) and she was telling me how it suuucks that she has to put the baby in a swing or go for a drive to get her to sleep; how she couldn't wait to just be able to "put the baby in the crib and walk away" in a couple of months.
And the other friend's baby was born in December. I e-mailed to ask when we could finally come by for a visit (she lives about an hour & a half away and I don't have a car, so it has been hard to plan). She wrote back, "She's sleeping pretty well, but we still don't but have a routine down. If you could give me a couple more weeks then we will start the formal sleep training and it will be easier to plan something."
