Please don't judge.
I have tried everything with my 4.5month old
I was now settled on letting him cry - not in a room by him self mind you, but when I hear him wind up, I walk in, and sit at the end of the cot where he can see me if he looks for me, but I'm not in his face. We are now down to around five minutes from all out screaming to him settling himself down.
I'm wondering how long (or if) he will eventually figure out that he can wake and resettle without the screaming in the middle?
Other ways I have tried
Boobing to sleep - worked until he started waking every 2hours
Jiggling to sleep - passes out immediately then wakes as soon as you try to put him down, even if you continue to jiggle as you lower
Shushing and patting without picking him up - just seems to make it worse, it is how I get him to sleep first off at night and seems to have picked it up well, but as a resettling technique not so much.
Added info - he has reflux (on meds) and has been teething since he was 2months old (2 already with another 4 hurting him now)
