Frequently Asked Questions
You’re ready for your baby to begin sleeping through the night but you still have some questions.
We have all the answers
What sleep training method do you use?
We offer more than a method. We offer the missing piece of all other branded sleep training methods and books. Mainstay Sleep Method offers individualized plans, not a cookie cutter solution, and the emotional support necessary to make sleep training your baby as seamless as possible. We go into your home and get to know your baby and your family’s routines and habits. Unlike sleep training books and other consulting services, we are there with you every step of the way from the time you contact us sleep deprived, working side by side with you and your child in your home, your child peacefully falling asleep and staying asleep, to extended support to make sure new habits stick.

Do you do Cry-It-Out?
We don’t want your baby crying either. Even the “no-cry” methods involve some tears though. Learning to fall asleep is hard work resulting in a few tears out of frustration. We want this transition of learning to fall asleep to be as easy and seamless as possible for both you and your baby. We will discuss crying at length and together, come up with a plan that minimizes crying and empowers your baby to learn to fall asleep on their own and stay asleep.
When can I start sleep training my baby?
We start our sleep training programs with babies as early as 8 weeks and it works for children up to 4 years. The most ideal time to start is before teething and big developmental leaps, 10-16 weeks. But if your baby is older than that, no worries! This methd can work for your baby too!
How do I know if my baby is ready to sleep train?
We can’t tell you the answer to this. It is when you’re ready, when your partner is ready, when all care providers are on board, when you’re ready for your baby to have one night time feeding, and your baby is healthy.
Can you help my baby sleep through the night?
In order to work with us, we want to be 100% sure we can get your baby to sleep through the night. When we are 100% confident, we have a 100% success rate. To know for sure if you and your baby are the perfect candidates, apply for our complimentary sleep assessment so we can speak with you over the phone and be sure you’re a good fit.
How long does it take to sleep train a baby?
Your baby will be sleep trained in 48 hours. We know this sounds too good to be true but it is true, we do it all the time. 48 hours is the time frame for healthy babies not suffering from temporary teething pain. Our most popular package is a 48 hour stay in your home but we do offer a 72 hour package for those wanting a bit more support and reassurance.
What if it doesn’t work?
Everyone thinks their baby is the baby this won’t work for. To be honest, we don’t have an answer for this question because it’s never not worked. Yes, there will be set backs but we are there to coach you through them. We are teaching your baby a lifelong gift and our results are sustainable. We have a 100% guarantee for a reason. We will not let you fail!
Can a toddler and a baby share a room?
Absolutely! We work with your family’s home geography and dynamics.
Can you help us sleep train twins?
Sure can! Lila is our twins expert.
What sleep training book is the best?
Honestly, none of them. Sleep training books offer cookie cutter solutions and their information is always contradicting another and you end up more confused and frustrated than when you started.
Is the 4-month sleep regression a thing?
Simply put, yes. However, its not just a sleep regression. Its a time when your baby becomes aware that there is a world outside of your arms and they’re more alert and wakeful. It’s not uncommon for a baby to be sleeping long stretches at 2-3 months and then everything changes around 4 months.
How can I get my toddler out of my bed?
The technique is much different, but we promise your toddler will learn to love their “big kid” bed.
Do you offer phone or Skype consultations?
Our Sleep Training Program is the fastest and easiest for a reason, it stems from the comprehensive, in-home support. We believe this getting to know you, your baby, and being able to coach you through the entire process is the crucial piece to the sleep training process that allows us to say we are 100% guaranteed.
