It's a name (Dr. Richard Ferber), who writes books about infant and children sleep training. Ferberizing the verb some people use to descirbe his method of letting a baby "cry it out" while trying to learn to fall asleep unassisted.
Google it. Tons of stuff out there.
jilicious:Oh man. Don't google it. There are far more AP forums out there discussing Ferber than there are Ferber forums. Online, Ferber is the Republican at Woodstock.
Lanie2883:If you want to do the Crying it out method, I suggest you read his book: Solving your child's sleep problems. Really interesting and is more "waiting it out" rather than "crying it out". Explains a lt about sleep patterns of children and adults.
I agree with this. Read the book.
Don't Google it, there is way too much misinformation out there about it.
