Anyone have experience with this sleep training method? My 6 month old DD's sleep has been terrible the past month. It takes about 40 minutes to an hour just to get her down at night and she is up 2 or 3 times a night. I wouldn't mind her getting up at night but it takes about 40minutes to an hour to put her back down. I often take her into my bed when I am just so exhausted but we actually all sleep much better when she is in her crib. When I bring her into bed with me she will comfort suck all night long. She was sleeping through the night and I don't know what happened. I don't mind feeding her in the middle of the night but many times she just wants to comfort suck. She has zero self soothing skills and although I am a fairly patient person I am starting to get very frustrated. She has never napped well and she spends most of her day very overtired.
I know Ferber is very popular but I don't think it would work for her. I think the check ins with no pick ups would just frustrate her even more I want to choose the most gentle method possible. I read the sleep lady shuffle and I think it may work. Has anyone tried it? How old was your LO and how long before you saw results? I also read No Cry Sleep Solution but honestly, I didn't really like it. I mean she has some good ideas but she doesn't really offer a concrete plan. I'm the type of person that needs a step by step approach.
