When you were pregnant with your first child, you heard of the Ferber method, better known as the Cry-It-Out method of sleep training. Theoretically, it seemed easy enough. Your baby will adjust for a few days, cry a bit until they got used to sleeping through the night in their crib and eventually their toddler bed. However, you never knew how sleep deprived you would become from the first days of waking up constantly from your baby cries. Also, you never knew how emotionally hard it would be.
