Going to try next week..

Since Hunter was born, he always goes to sleep with a bottle, and wakes up every 3 hours wanting another bottle. He does not drink to much, but I guess it just calms him down. The doctor said now that Hunter is almost 10 months old, and I have not had a full nights sleep in almost 2 years now (during pregnancy and now). I am scared to let Hunter scream and cry, and it is instinct for me to jump up and sooth him. She said to try the Cry it Out method and let him cry and scream, and calm him down, and try it again.. I am hoping that this will work. She did say it will take at least 3 days of this and not a lot of sleep until it will work hopefully.

Does anyone have any other advice or can share their experience?

        We only let ours cry it out if we knew they were over tired. I usually nursed mine to sleep. Sorry, I have no real experience with a bottle because we didn't use them but a few times.
