Is this booklet for me?
Not sure what's next?
If you took the newborn class and have a great sleeper but aren’t sure what comes next for your baby, this booklet is for you!
Sleep falling apart?
If you had a great sleeper during the newborn phase but all of a sudden sleep is falling apart, this booklet is for you too!
Baby just won't sleep?
And if you have had months of struggle with a baby who just won’t sleep, this booklet is also for you.
This guide is not meant to be “active sleep training” as your little one is simply not developmentally ready for that yet.
“Navigating Months 3 & 4” is a road map to help prepare you for the weeks and months ahead. Your little one faces some of the biggest changes in brain development during months 3 & 4. To parents, this time is known as the dreaded four month sleep regression. Our goal is to help you support your baby through this amazing (and sometimes frustrating) stage of development.
This guide is for parents who have AND have not taken the Taking Cara Babies’ Newborn Class. However, for babies 12 weeks and under, this guide is NOT yet developmentally appropriate. Please take advantage of the newborn class first.
What’s covered in “Navigating Months 3 & 4”?
Understanding the regression
Fitting in needed daytime calories
Preventing “reverse cycling”
Establishing a bedtime routine
Creating a sleep environment
Helping baby to fall asleep more independently
Reducing night wakings
Weaning night feedings (if needed)
Creating a realistic flexible schedule
Eliminating sleep props (Rock N Play, DockATot, swing, etc.)
Transitioning out of the swaddle
If my baby is 8-12 weeks old, should I buy this instead of the newborn class?
No, for babies 12 weeks and under, the newborn class is the way to go!
Is this a class?
No, this is a self-guided booklet that you can download, print, and refer to as needed.
Will this booklet help prevent me from having to “sleep train” my baby?
Some parents will likely see that this guide helps their nights become exactly what they need them to be (with the goal to be: one feeding in the night and long stretches of sleep). Others may decide that the ABC’s of Sleep will help perfect those nights even further. Any progress in navigating through this 3-4 month phase will only make sleep training that much easier should you decide it’s necessary.
Does this booklet involve crying?
If your nights are a struggle, tears are likely part of your life already (both YOURS and the baby’s). This guide will instruct you to wait a few minutes before intervening, but you will be actively providing comfort and holding your baby when needed.
See what mamas are saying about “Navigating Months 3 & 4”
This has been a rough couple of months, but thanks to Taking Cara Babies, life in our family has gotten so much better! Our son is sleeping through the night without having to do any sleep training (Even if he wakes for a moment, he is now able to PUT HIMSELF BACK TO SLEEP.). Love this program and so thankful for Cara and her team!
After following the steps in “Navigating Months 3 & 4,” our baby now puts herself to sleep without no crying or pacifier at night! At night, she went from nursing every 2 hours to a 7-hour stretch. And her naps have even started to develop a pattern since starting this sleep regimen! We are so grateful!
I really enjoyed this guide. It just makes sense! After my baby was out of the newborn phase, I started to come up with all kinds of questions as my baby started to develop, and it was just so helpful. This book really is just what a new mom needs!
I really appreciate this map to help me survive the months until we are ready to sleep train with the ABC’s of Sleep! We’ve started to implement the steps and are excited to continue knowing we have so many answers in this book.
