We're going to try sleep training with DS starting this Friday. I've been reading Ferber's book (not quite finished yet) and DH and I are going to follow his modified/gradual CIO method.
His plan requires LO to be awake when put into the crib, but I have been nursing DS to sleep since he was born. Our bedtime routine is bath, jammies/sleepsuit, story, nurse. If I can't nurse to sleep, when in the routine should I nurse instead?
Also, when DS wakes up during the night, we're suppose to continue the gradual CIO method then too. I worry that DS is hungry when he wakes, so I don't want to deny him food. But how can I know for sure?? Right now, I feed every time he wakes (1-3 times) pretty much.
Anyone have any insight or words of wisdom?
