Well, we are Ferberizing tonight for the first time. LO used to be such a great sleeper. Putting him to sleep was no problem, and he slept just fine in his crib starting around 2 months. It's just been getting progressively worse and worseuntil he was sleeping in the RnP only and it was taking at least an hour to get him to go back to sleep during every MOTN waking.
It seems to be working well so far. I had to get over feeling like I was failing him some how. Listening to him cry is hard, especially because I have a flair for the dramatic and kept thinking about thosepoor Romanian orphan babies that have up even bothering to cry because no one was ever coming to help them.
Yeah. Sorry. I cried right along with him tonight. But the first time he put himself to sleep in less than 30 minutes, with us going in to soothe him after 1, 3, 5, and 10 minutes. The second time he woke it took only 7 minutes. I can't believe it.
TL;DR version: I am trying CIO a la Ferber method. It's going well. LNCI yoself!
Also, ferberizing is totally coming up asa word in my phone. Weird.
