I started to try your method of soothing LO without the paci during the night. Can you do me a huge favor and walk me thru some additional details?
I know you said to let him cry for 10 mins and then go in to talk to him BUT, what if you cannot calm him by simply talking and touching him? Our LO was so awake and screaming that I couldn't calm him back down. On the first try I'll admit it, I caved and gave him back the paci. Obviously I suck, and am being controlled by an almost 4 month old!
i will be trying again tomorrow night when DH can help more (I wasn't able to get help from him tonight since he needs to work tomorrow) but we can both work on this Friday night and I'd love some more advice on how easily you could calm your LO and how many tries this took throughout the night?
i have an incredibly hard time hearing him scream.... I'm just not cut out for the CIO method, even though I logically understand it's what I need to do to break this habit.
