How Long Does Sleep Training Take?


A sleep trained baby

If you’ve spent many sleep-deprived nights with your baby wondering exactly how long sleep training should take, you’re not alone. Trying to get a baby to sleep through the night is a common challenge that many parents face, and there are a variety of factors that can affect your child’s ability to have a good night’s sleep. That’s why a San Francisco sleep training consultant like Evi is here to help. In her experience, babies can be sleep trained in just 3 to 5 days, with the right support and guidance.


Factors that Affect How Long Sleep Training Can Take

Every baby is different, and there are a range of issues that may impact whether they're ready to sleep through the night. Some of these considerations include:


  • Consistency & Routine: Establishing consistent sleep schedules and routines can have a major effect on the success of sleep training. Crafting and sticking with age-appropriate sleep routines that align well with their natural circadian rhythm is key in sleep training a baby. Adhering to the same sleep schedules also helps to lower a baby’s reliance on sleep associations like being rocked or using a pacifier.

  • Age: Most babies between the ages of 4-6 months are ready to start sleep training, though some parents may choose to wait until they are a bit older. But as a baby’s brain develops over time, new roadblocks to sleep training may occur. For example, a 5-month-old may not understand that her parents continue to exist outside her bedroom, but a 10-month-old likely does. The 10-month-old may be more likely to cry, knowing his parents are nearby and can comfort him quickly.

  • History of Sleep Associations: Sleep associations, also called sleep habits, are behaviors or triggers that happen routinely before bedtime. Some babies develop a significant dependance on sleep associations, which makes sleeping all but impossible when those habits are taken away. Common sleep associations include being rocked, co-sleeping with parents, using a pacifier, and being fed to sleep.
