Ferberization is a technique invented by Dr. Richard Ferber to solve infant sleep problems. It involves "baby-training" children to self-soothe by allowing the child to cry for a predetermined amount of time before receiving external comfort.
We have two nights down, one to go and the results have been steadily improving since implementation. This method may be a keeper! Parents have regained some control, dang it!
The book! I must destroy it by any means necessary! I actually have to sleep with this terrible method!
Just make it stop, I want to go back to the old way where I ran circles around these two and I always got my way!
Cross your fingers, if I get successfully ferberized everyone may get all the sleep they need and more finally!

I am currently no longer sleeping through the night, waking up an average of 2-4 times during the night, refusing to nap during the day, refusing the majority of solid foods that come my way and dominating my parents in this game of life.
