The routine goes something like this: you coerce your child into their pajamas and into brushing their teeth, you’ve read their favorite book (twice), made up a new bedtime story for them, and then spent the next 20 minutes letting your arm fall asleep in the hopes that the child curled up on it will too. Finally, you gingerly extricate your arm, tiptoe out, and get cozy in your own bed only to have your child walk in and announce that they can’t sleep. This is a cycle that you rinse and repeat nightly. So how can we effectively sleep train both our littlest kids and our toddlers? Here to this question and discuss effective techniques for sleep training is a Fellow at the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and Director of the Behavioral Sleep Program at Connecticut Children's Medical Center, Dr. Lynelle Schneeberg.
