I was always one of those women who was totally against controlled crying. I always said "I would never do that to DD"...
Well, the time has come that I have changed my mind. I can tolerate listening to her crying because I am so frustrated.
She used to sleep cat naps of 45 mins.. for a couple of days I had her in a great routine where she would sleep 1.5hours each nap, plus a 45 min cat nap in the afternoon.
This week, she has tried my patience for too long. She has been taking 30 min catnaps and only 2 of these a day! I have had it! I am doing controlled crying.
I really do feel for those mothers who have to put up with people telling them how wrong it is. When it is your last resort, you have nothing else to do. I really hope this works, though.. otherwise I know I will feel terrible. But I am going to stick to it.
