please come in!
I am just popping over from 3-6 Months board but wanted to ask some mommies of older babies if they did ferber and how it went.
Right now my LO isn't the greatest sleeper and if she still isn't sleeping well in another month I think we are going to try Ferber. She will be 5 months old then. I have the book and just started reading it but have a few questions.
Our main problems are she needs to be held or rocked to sleep before being placed in her crib and even that doesn't always work. So it can take multiple attempts. She also wakes up multiple times during the night because she realizes she isn't being held. We only actually feed her once during the night so I know she isn't waking up that often because she is necessarily hungry.
So my questions:
1. What age did you do Ferber? Was is Successful? How long did it take to see results?
2. Did you still allow a night time feeding? If not did you try to cut that out before hand or just tackle all your problems at once?
3. Did you use Ferber for naps too?
