“We had sleep trained each of our babies when they were between three and five months old,” says Katherine Dee, MD, a mom of twin daughters and a son and a radiologist at the Seattle Breast Center, in Washington. “When the twins were around seven months, we took them on their first trip. I was concerned that the big change of sleeping somewhere other than their cribs would throw their sleep off. So before we left, I got them each a Silkie for their crib, and we took it along. I thought it would help them to sleep if they had something with them that they identified from their cribs.
