My 10 month old has followed Tizzie's methods from Save our Sleep since he was three months, and has always slept (pretty much) 7pm-7am.
Just prior to Easter, and then three weeks ago, he suffered from Gastro and during this time we had to change his formula (to novalac) and his feeding/sleeping suffered as a result. He slowed eating (which I understand) and started waking between 3-5am for a feed and then would sleep.
Now he is all better however he now is ravenous and drinks his entire bottle allocation (all four bottles on Tizzies suggested routines) and wakes every morning between 5-5:30am.
So, my question is... has anyone tried the early riser technique of leaving baby to re-settle in the morning?
The case study in the book suggests leaving him until he falls back to sleep, even if it is past his usual wake time?!?! My boy isnt one to nap well, and is not the type to fall asleep on the floor when playing and I imagine he could stay in his cot and cry probably till midday if we left him - Im just not sure I want to do that.
