LO is now a little over eight months and still wakes up 3-4x per night. He reduced it to 2x per night for a while, but that is the treat we have had since birth. He was cosleeping until a few months ago. Now we have our crib side carred and slide the rail across after he is asleep for safety reasons. (he can stand now).
I am starting to feel desperate for longer periods of sleep and he still will not go back to sleep without nursing and as of latey he won't even go to sleep for DH. A thinking about starting the sleep shuffle within this month but it mostly I talks about transferring a baby to his own room. I am not sure we are ready for this. I was just hoping to get him used to his crib and try to teach him to go to sleep on his own without CIO. I wasn't even considering this, but the other day at daycare they said he went to sleep by himself in the pack n play without crying. Miracle! It made me think maybe I should start trying to do this at home once in a while. The other day I left him in his crib for about 45 min without sleeping. Any time I peeked in on him, f he saw me, he would escalate.
Would love to hear some thoughts from other AP moms about this.
I think we would all sleep better and deeper if LO was able to sleep in his crib. Right now I am transferring him to his crib when asleep after nursing him to sleep. I need more than 3-4 hours of consecutive sleep! I work in an ER and I am afraid I am going to hurt someone!
