im needing suggestions

Im wanting to start having my little one self soothe himself to sleep at night instead of having a bottle and going straight to his bed. THe doctor said if I do this it may keep him from being so wrestles at night. We never rock him he just falls asleep while eating his last bottle for the day. If any one has any suggestions on how do this at night and for nap time that would be great

Re: im needing suggestions

  • Based on my two kids, one needed help going down, and my son 6 mos puts himself to sleep from wide awake with no help.

    Have you tried just putting him in bed at bed time?  For example, my lo has his last bottle at 7, then we snuggles for five minutes, change into jammies and put him in bed.

  • We did the Ferber method and it worked great. I recommend reading the book and trying it out. Bedtime is really easy for us now that LO can put himself to sleep.

    I haven't tried that yet but I will try it anything will help. Im dreading trying to do this because I don't want to listen to him cry:( tonight is the first time we are trying to put him to bed awake 
  • The NoCry Sleep Solution has a few different nonCIO suggestions to try based on your situation, the book is easy to skim for what you want/need and you might be able to find it at the library. We've been introducing a "lovey" to help with selfsoothing, but that's been for naps as I'm not comfortable letting her have it when I'm sleeping too.

  • We would let Hallie fuss for 5 to 10 minutes then would go try to calm her without picking her up. We were really strict on not picking her up and she falls asleep without any assistance now.
