Sleep Training

Twelve Hours' by Twelve Weeks Old -  It is highly recommended that you read this before the birth of your baby, and keep it as a source when you're ready to sleep train. Allows for creating a plan, and thus helping with gradually eliminating the night awakenings and feeding. "The Limited Crying Solution" will help every baby sleep for the entire night, presented by Suzy Giordano. Everyone needs to get some sleep, so we can have enough energy for the baby.
