In brief: Patience is perfect

Teaching yuor child to sleep does not happen overnight.
Like all other developmental skills, some pick it up quick and some need a lot of practice. Start at an early age - encourage even yur infant to learn "self-soothing". Then have a bedtime routine that you are consistent with, but don't put your child in bed asleep. They need to learn to fall asleep in their own bed environment. Be patient!

In brief: Trial and error

There are many methods of sleep training out there and not one is perfect for everyone.
Try one method and if it doesn't work for your family try another. All methods have in common the importance of a consistent bedtime routine. Start sleep training around 3-4 months of age and don't be discouraged if one method doesn't work out. Different children respond to different methods.
