6 days ago I started self settling with my 12 week old baby by letting him cry so he falls asleep by himself after some advice i was given by my ECHN. Previously I was having to pat him to sleep for all sleeps which sometimes took over an hour - and he would sometimes wake after 40 mins, and would only EVER sleep for 40 mins at a time during the day.
Since we started he now sleeps for 2 - 2 1/2 hours at a time during the day, and has started sleeping through at night, so we are very happy with the progress BUT the last 2 nights the crying before going to sleep at night has been 20+ mins, when on days 3 and 4 it was between 2 - 5 mins! I feel like for some reason we are now going backwards in terms of the crying?!?!
I was wondering how long this takes before he wont cry when I put him down?
Any feedback/help would realllllly be appreciated!
