Reply to Ferber method questions

My husband and I found things that would help soothe our little one when we started sleep training. Putting one of your T-shirt’s in the crib/bassinet with him so he would smell us and think we were there. We use a mobile/sound machine as well. We got ours at Target and it works great. He loves the ocean sounds and little lullaby music. So he associates those sounds with sleep. I also highly recommend the Johnsons lavender night time lotion as well. Hope some of these tricks help!
