    I have never cared what anyone here thinks about my choice to CC. I knew it was right for me and DD and I have no regrets.

    Good on you lms. 3 nights of crying for a hopefully near-eternity of sleeping bliss and happy mumma.

    Benefit > cost.

    I think you would be damaging the kids more if you let the interrupted sleep/sleep deprivation/stressed mumma scenario continue

    Totally agree with this and it's one of the arguments I use when I'm faced with the viewpoint that I'm potentially causing longterm physiological damage to my child by letting him cry.

    I have a thread on here. Sorry...rambling about my story first and will get to suggestion.

    DS is a terrible sleeper. Nap is a nightmare. He "evolves" on that. I sent him to sleep school at 10w. Unfortunately, after 2w of sleep training (pat and Shoosh), we gave up. He was a much happier baby to sleep elsewhere other than his cot. Or put down when super tired (fussed less). He was sleeping in his bouncer for weeks with pat and Shoosh. At some point, he was ok to nap in his cot. Sometime self settle, sometime just didn't want to nap despite tired. I stopped forcing him to nap if he refused.

    The night sleep was going ok since 9w until we hit 4 months old. Ok means a long stretch the first half and then frequent waking after 4am.

    Teething, rolling....but that isn't it. Now, He wants dummy. We woke up many times at night wanting us to put it back in. Exhausted. We only feed once if he won't go back to sleep (after midnight only). Some nights he doesn't need a feed. It is inconsistent at this point. We tried to teach him putting it back but he can't put it back in the right way just yet. The only time he slept through (no interruption) was when he was very sick. Sigh. Our wishful thinking is that he would improve like his nap pattern. Well, I guess it is unlikely because it is getting worse.

    We wanted to send him back to sleep school but weren't ready because he struggles with colic etc issues. I think we have found a suitable formula for his colic. Now, we will wait due to traveling with jetlag. Feel like forever......

    My question : how do u make CC successful with problems such as teething, mastering new skill etc happening at the same time?

    Ps: DS has no trouble falling asleep by himself in the evening. Just not falling back to sleep afterward.

    There will always be something. Another development milestone, another tooth etc.

    My son didn't sleep through the night until he was about 12 months but I did sleep training at about 5 months. After that, If he woke up, I'd address the issue (hunger, pain) then could just put him down and he'd put himself to sleep, which was bliss. No rocking, patting, shushing etc.

    I used one of ferber's methods (very similar to what LMS used) to train my son to sleep. It took about 3 days. It was hard... But so so so worth it. He sleeps like a boss, is thriving like nobody's business and still loves me to the moon and back.

    I'm very conscious with my daughter now to try avoid habits that we need to eventually break, although we all do what we need to do to get through.


    You'll see your son will start putting his own dummy back in his mouth very soon, when he does, throw in a few extra in the cot for good measure!

    Bbhope, pm me if you want more info on ferber's method. X

    LMS - go you! Welcome back to society as a rested functioning human being!
