    Look I don't think I can stick it out for another couple of years to get him *almost* sleeping through. There's no way I'd do cc now, as he's only 4 months but I'm not against it down the track if it's what he needs to get him sleeping alone. I haven't slept in the same bed as my husband for four months and it's taking its toll. Worse still, I think I'm actually doing my son a disservice by continuing this for much longer. He wakes hourly through the night looking for boob to get himself back to sleep. It's keeping both of us up. Not to mention I can't take him anywhere for too long during the day (eg friend's house) as he won't lie down to sleep on his own.
    As far as sleep school goes, I've had friends who went and said it was the best thing they ever did. They won't do cc for young babies and my friend said there was only a little bit of crying involved for her one year old.
    I guess I just want to hear from someone who broke the habit successfully and relatively quickly.

    We did sleep school at 6m and went from many wakings a night with a dummy and feeds to 1 waking a night over the course of a weekend. I strongly recommend sleep school! It wasn't CC - we were encouraged to pick up and cuddle our babies as much as we needed.

    Thanks @gumnut babies that's exactly what I needed to hear! Not keen on the crying because judging by some of our car rides, my ds works himself up into a blithering, screaming, red faced mess. Can I ask where you went? And did it help for naps too? I feel like I've got so much further to go than other people though because he won't sleep in his bassinet for any length of time.

    Glad to hear people have found good schools, I went about advice for a couple but didn't follow thru after discussing methods. The quote on cc under fancy name comes from a dr who specialises in mums and bubs and works out what she thinks will fit w ur beliefs....

    I'm sorry but this is not correct.

    I'm someone who has actually been to a "sleep school" (for a combo of feeding issues, PND, and sleep issue) and I can tell you first hand I found it a lifesaver.

    No mum should ever feel bad for putting her hand up and saying she needs her own space to get a bit of sleep.

    It was amazing with naps - the babe would only sleep while breastfeeding or in the carrier - now the babe sleeps 1-1.5hrs twice a day in the cot! OMG my life has changed! They also taught me how to settle of bubs wakes up after only (only!) 40mins and it's really given me the confidence to know what to do and how to do it!

    It was also great to have hands on coaching for settling bubs. When the CHN had said said previously to shush and pat the mattress to get the babe to sleep - I was thinking - you have to be kidding, that will never work for my child. And guess what? Now that's what I use to settle the babe to sleep!

    Sorry just seen your posts. Things are pretty good here now with my 13 month old and he's been sleeping through for a couple of months now. It might not be what you want to hear (and I certainly wouldn't recommend it with a 4 month old) but we tried cc again just before going to sleep school and it worked amazingly and very quickly within a couple of days (have a search for my sleep diary I did at the time). We tried cc at 6 months and it was hideous so I've since realised that he just wasn't ready then but when he was it did work and I couldn't be happier with my decision. No regrets whatsoever as I was miserable with the cosleeping.
    I'm regards to sleep school I don't have much advise as we only lasted 24 hours as my little one came down with a temp so we got sent home. Luckily we were pretty much sorted anyway having tried cc again. They didn't do cc as such but there was some crying involved. But like others have said it varies from school to school and also techniques vary for the diff ages too. I would def look into those options if they are available to you. X
