Sleep training

I right ladies so I spend the whole day reading sleep habits book and I'm going to start sleep training today.

Basically I have to wake up from 6 to 7 AM

Put him to nap around 9 AM

Then put him to nap around noon

Then start the bedtime routines and get him ready to go to sleep seven 730

This requires for me to allow him to cry for no longer than 30 minutes within naptime

And no limit around bedtime which since I'm just starting I'm knocking to be so abrasive and do everything but I will only go in twice for feedings

Wish me luck

    Good luck. I personally can't do the CIO, I have always put black out curtains in the nursery so it's dark and rocked/nursed them sleep while singing or reading. He'll get it though and so will you. :)

      My mom said when we wouldn't sleep she would let us cry for ten minutes-like the hysterical crying, she couldn't handle more than that. She'd comfort us, get us almost calmed down and almost to sleep then lay us down. All the while she'd be sitting outside the door crying.

        Well I did a bedtime routine and put him to bed at 6:17, by 7:37 he was crying and I don't pick him up for 30 mins. When I went to get him he was drenched in sweat and wouldn't stop crying for 18 mins. There's no way he is going to sleep til 6am tomorrow screw that book. I'm going to put him to sleep at 10 and then try not to get him but I won't let him cry past an hour, more then likely, 30 mins

          You are a good mom! Don't ever think different. Everybody has to find what works best for them and it changes with every kid because every kid is different. It's taken me four kids to find a way that MIGHT work so I'm trying something different again. around nine months seems to be a hard time. He needs to know mommy will come back, he has a short memory and needs constant reassurance. A little at a time. Make him play by himself-give him some toys then go do something else while staying in sight. Let him cry for 10-15 minutes, then go in and calm him down that will help him learn mommy is always there and some self soothing at the same time. Trust me that's it's a lot easier to do it now than later. You are mommy, you are supposed to comfort that baby. Can daddy help when you get overwhelmed? Sometimes it's different if a daddy or grandparent can go in comfort him back sleep.

            If you are dead set on doing it this way I would say give it a week. He should figure things out by then, babies adapt easy. He also may be the kind of kid it won't work on. Be flexible, you'll get it.

              :) Everybody finds a different way. Every kid requires a different way. :)
