Ferberize your baby so everyone can sleep.

Ferber explained
Dr. Richard Ferber popularized the “crying it out a little at a time” method for teaching 4 to 6 month olds to soothe themselves to sleep in his book Solve Your Child’s Sleep Problems (Fireside, 1986; ISBN-13: 978-0671620998). I tell you frankly, “Ferberizing” saved our sanity. This approach to behavior change is called “graduated extinction.” It worked for our son: he graduated into sleep and we didn’t go extinct.
