Sleep training: You can sta renown. Make sure she is drowsy before putting her to bed.Once in bed , make sure she is okay, but don't pick her jo. It will take several nights and shell fall asleep on her own.

At birth: The best time to start sleep training is now. If a kid is fed upon waking, changed after, entertained until tired & put down alone & awake, they learn to settle into sleep. If you make carrying, rocking or feeding part of the go to sleep pattern, they cannot separate from you.You can start over now with the pattern above & let her fuss, checking her every 5 min until she accepts the change.
