DH and I cc our almost 9 month old girl tonight for the first time. She normally goes to sleep at 9pm every night but tonight she had her solids veg feed at 5.30 followed by a bath at 6. I breast fed her at a quarter to 7 and we let her cry from 7-8
The most shed ever cried is 40 mins...and this was on a car trip once.
This CC was the hardest thing Ive ever had to do.
I went to a sleep session thing with my council today and they suggested it as I was at my wits end. My girl was going to bed WAYYY too late...and subsequently waking through the night for top ups.
Shes still sleeping now thank god, this was after a booby feed. I gave her plenty of reassurance...I spoke to her softly...and patted her bum. Poor thing was so sweaty too.
Please..does anyone out there know when it will get easier...i want to try it again for the rest of the week...or as long as I can. Is it by day 3 where it gets easier. I seriously hope Im doing the right thing as I know she misses out on lots of sleep at night.
For those of you who are 'for this method'....please tell me if Im doing the wrong thing. I need some reassurance that the next few days will be better.
