    We sorta started control crying about 5ish months.... we are living with my MIL and family so I wasnt doing it properly picking her up and putting her back down ... I hate when she cries, they always seem to want to check up on me when she is crying.
    They went out one night and i let her cry it out ... BEST THING I EVER DID. .... She has gone down sooo much easier from just one night of letting her cry it out .... there were a few more nights of crying and still one every now and then... but soo much easier and less stressful now that she goes to bed without me.

    I done the same with my babies, it was hard sometimes but we got through it. now when i put them to bed they go to sleep straight away.

    I know that they are in pain if they dont go to sleep.

    I think that CC really works, but it has to be done right.

    When my DD crys at night ime is still go in and comfort settle. patting the bottom etc. I check to see her nappy and if i think she is in pain i give her SM33 gel and panadol. I persist with the CS and if DS wakes i go in and comfort him saying to him " it's ok she is just tired and trying to sleep. more sleep honey, good boy love you." then I CS for another 20 minutes. If she hasn't settled by then then it wasn't her teeth. as your DS is only 4.5 months he might be hungry. I don't like to feed during the night either as I don't like them forming a habbit. But they say that a child under the age of 6 months might wake up during the night for a feed. So I fed her till she was 6 months then CS after that.

    I hope that made sense.

    Unhappy **Bump

    I know this thread is a bit old, but so far, it has been v helpful.

    I haven't started CC yet. DS does go 'down' very well at every sleep, and has 3 naps per day (yes, I know he should be down to 2 naps by now, but I am tackling one hurdle at a time!) but keeping him asleep at night is our problem.

    Question to you all.... what do I do with a 6 month old who is VERY active in his sleep. He is in a sleeping bag, but he still ends up turning 180 degrees, arms hanging out the side of the cot, sleeping at the foot etc etc.....

    The night before hubby and I were out of bed to him 10 times between us!!

    Do I just use the CC tecnhiques the same as I would if I had just put him down??

    Thanks in advance

    *ducks for cover* ... I used a cot bumper.... DD could roll around obviously and used to wake up smacking into the sides of the cot as soon as i put it on she stoped waking up.

    What are you doing now to get him back to sleep???....I used to use CC to get her to bed but through the night I used to give a breast feed and she would be only half awake anyways would be back to sleep in couple mins.

    This thread has been useful to me. My daughter wakes up about once a night for a feed but I want to cut it out in the next few weeks as she is 6 months old. Tried dream feed at 11:30 but she did't sleep much longer till 2:30.

    Belle, I purchased a wedge thing which goes either side of their shoulders so they can't roll around. It is SIDS approved or says so on the box. Message me if you're interested.

    Good luck ladies listening to crying isn't easy but 10 minutes later when they're asleep it's all worth it

    I strongly recommend 'Sleeping through the night by Dr Mendall' (I think the authors name is right, I have loaned the book to someone at the moment.

    I read a few things on CC but the book above was the only book that really made me understand why and what was happening and gave a good explaination of what to do. Many a CHN said I must stay in the room but that just wasn't working for me. I have had great success with night time sleeping but now just need to work on getting DD to self settle for day naps

    If she wakes during the night, I just go in lay her back down, stroke her hair, and calm her as best I can then leave, she usually just screams because I have just left the room but then soon calms down, if she doesn't I will get her up and hold her till she falls back to sleep. (I still use a dummy btw) With the book I mention above they say you only need to use CC for the initiall going to sleep part, for night waking use what works for you in the beginning and only use CC if night wakings carry on for a few weeks

    hi guys,

    I just want to share that, I am disappointed to read an article from a magazine that, the so called experts advised that it's impossible for babies under age of 12 months to sleep through the night.

    It is these misleading information has cause parents to not seek help with their babies waking up a few times at night because they were told by the media that it is OK.

    Parents have often blame babies' unsettledness on the so called Wonder Week. While I believe that babies could be affected by these wonder week, but if it continues for a while then parents should start doing something about it. It is these wonder weeks that babies have not learned to self settle and think that they can continue to wake at night and this could happen right through to toddlers years.

    My experience is parents hate to be told that their babies can sleep through because they think it's impossible. While I was trying to share my experience with these parents, my concern is not for them, but for their poor babies because they are not allowed a chance to get a good 12 hours uninterrupted sleep. Poor sleeping could have a negative impact on them in their future.

    I am glad to see that there's such thread here that I can express my view because I just couldn't stand to see that parents with babies of older age is not getting enough sleep.

    Having said that I haven't used Controlled Crying. The method I have used is Teaching to Self Settle method
