You're sleep-deprived, in ways you never imagined. Putting one baby to sleep is hard enough, but now you have two to contend with. Two babies who wake up at random times throughout the night. Two babies whose pacifiers fall out and need to be put back in a million times. Two babies you need to rock, nurse, or hold to get them to fall back asleep several times every night. No wonder you're tired. And I can relate: my twins kept my husband and me up at nights, disrupting everyone's sleep. Rocking or nursing to sleep was exhausting. I knew this wasn't a sustainable pattern to continue, and I looked forward to the day when I could finally help them fall asleep on their own. I had an older son whom I sleep trained when he was a baby, but I needed a system that worked specifically with twins. I was dealing with two babies with different patterns and sleeping aids. And so I modified the sleep training method I had used for my singleton to accommodate twins. After just a week, both boys were sleeping 12 hours straight (from 7pm to 7am) without waking up once. I wrote a blog post about the process, to the delight of many twin parents. Several responded with success stories after using my methods. Others had more questions. After answering many of them, I knew I had more to say than what could fit in a single blog post. I wrote and wrote until I answered their questions and addressed different scenarios... and then compiled it all into this guide. I don't know about you, but I had some serious doubts about sleep training twins. I didn't know if it would work, especially since my twins had gotten so used to rocking and nursing. They also woke up several times a night to nurse. I couldn't imagine how they'd sleep through the night without waking up once. And they were supposed to share a room not just with each other, but with their big brother as well. Sleep training seemed all but impossible. Thankfully it all worked out. I wrote How to Sleep Train Twins so your twins can sleep through the night. No fluff, no extra stuff, just the exact steps and information you need. My goal is to help you truly enjoy parenthood. It's pretty hard to do that when you're sleep deprived. What you'll learn: The step-by-step process of sleep training twins: Confused with all the sleep training books you've read? How to Sleep Train Twins guides you through the exact process, even with twins in the same room. How to wean from night feedings: Learn how to gradually reduce and drop night feedings. Your twins will learn to consume their calories during the day and sleep through the night. Sleep training for naps: Learn the techniques to sleep train your twins for naps. You'll get the when, where, and how of doing it successfully. The tools you'll need: Successful sleep training relies on preparation. I'll show you the items you'll need to make sure sleep training goes smoothly. You'll also get a printable sleep tracker to record your progress. An invitation to a private Facebook group all about twins: You're not alone! You can ask me and other twin parents questions about sleep training or life with twins in general."

If your new baby cries inconsolably for many hours a day, take heart. The soothing help you need is here. Renowned pediatrician Dr. Marc Weissbluth knows firsthand how stressful life can be for a sensitive, fussy newborn—not to mention the child’s frantic, exhausted parents. His own firstborn, like more than a fifth of all babies, was a colicky child, causing him and his wife to suffer many sleepless nights. Your Fussy Baby is Dr. Weissbluth’s gift to other sorely tired mothers and fathers, written to help them comfort their newborns without disrupting their own lives. Even extreme fussiness, he says, is not dangerous and usually stops when the child is about four months old. In the meanwhile, however, life can be tough for the whole family. But whether your baby cries for as long as eight hours a day, suffers from gas, refuses to sleep, or all of the above, Your Fussy Baby will gently guide your little one—and you—through this mysterious phase of infant growth. Inside you will discover • Why your baby cries so much: The most up-to-date research, including some fascinating possibilities that researchers are just beginning to explore. • Dangerous myths about fussiness: Facts and fiction about diet, mothering, proper medications, and much more that even your pediatrician may not know. • The emotional effects: Avoiding the guilt, anxiety, and frustration that having a fussy baby so often stirs up. • What to do when your baby fusses: Specific recommendations for what parents can do to minimize the distress that prolonged crying causes the whole family. • Expert, step-by-step advice on establishing healthy sleep habits for your baby. With this reassuring, down-to-earth guidance, you can help your fretful, fussy newborn to become the sweet, happy baby he or she was meant to be. From the Trade Paperback edition.
