Many experts argue that no child ever really “sleeps through the night,” stating that everyone, adults included, will still have sleep arousals leading to brief wakings that most people don’t even remember.
For semantics sake, when we use that phrase in sleep consulting, we are referring to a night of sleep free from wakings that require parental intervention.
So when exactly is it feasible for that to happen? Once your child is 4 months (adjusted age) or older, they experience a cognitive burst and are able to begin working on becoming independent sleepers.
Prior to 4 months you can begin creating healthy habits and work on sleep shaping which can go a long way in helping to avoid the typical pitfalls we see when it comes to the foundation of great sleep.
