cry it out' suggests you leave your baby to cry for progressively longer periods starting at 3min working up to 20min. If like us you know your child is only waking because they don't know how to fall asleep without you then this is a effective way to solve this problem. This was the solution for us and she went to sleeping through on the second night & it sorting out her naps (taking 1.5-2hr naps instead of 30-45min) by the 3rd day. Our experience is below if you're interested
Our baby used to cry in our arms as we walked around for 20min to get her to sleep then we would wait another 20min for her to enter into a deep sleep & put her down. This worked quite well until around 5months when after an initial 4hr stretch she would wake within an hr of putting her down & this would go on all night! In hindsight i know that in between sleep cycles she would see the environment in which she fallen asleep had changed & this would wake her fully. She would then cry because she was tired & didn't know how to fall back to sleep without us. (Like teaching a child how to ride a bike without stabilisers you have to just let go & show them they can do it without you.) We first tried some 'no cry' alternatives shh pat /rocking until almost asleep etc our presence seemed to only aggravate /stimulate her & hinder sleep. Then reluctantly we tried this & now everyone is better off.The longest she cried was 30min.Read more ›
On his first birthday, I realised I could neither physically or mentally spend another year like this and, above all else, my baby needed the sleep he wasn't getting to thrive and develop, so I bought this, downloaded it and steeled myself for feeling wretched.
I was overwhelmingly surprised and very, very pleased to find a book written by someone who wanted to help children achieve the healthy sleeping patterns they need.
I put the techniques into practice that very night and, yes, my heart tugged when my baby started crying but I knew this was best for him; for both of us!
My baby is 22 months old now and has been sleeping through the night from that first week.
I wish I'd bought this book 9 months earlier!
