Sleep training when baby is sick

More comfort and cuddles

When you’re in the middle of sleep training and your baby gets sick, is it okay to continue with the training? When our little ones are sick, they need us more than usual for comfort and cuddles. Don’t feel that you shouldn’t go in to them when they’re unsettled and unhappy during this time. This is the time to get them better, to ride out the sick period and then start the training when they’re feeling better.

How sick is sick?

It also depends on how sick they are. If they’re a bit sniffly, not off their food and still reasonably happy, it’s not a problem to continue training. However, if they’re having trouble breathing, really not happy, off their food, fever, vomiting, diarrhoea and the general demeanour is not great, do what you need to do to keep them happy and comfortable. Sleep training can continue when they’re better.
