My parents claim that they didn't have to sleep train us. We just slept through the night by a few months old. That said, they didn't nap us all that much! Maybe my mom put us down 2-3 naps as little babies....of course we were welcome to fall asleep on our own!

My MIL did sleep train my husband though! He was a terrible sleeper woke hourly to nurse and finally at 6 months she had had it and read "Dr. Spock" and let him cry. He cried for 45 minutes the first night and that was it!

Sleep training seems very generational. I don't know many people of my parents generation (age 60+) that did it. Do you?
