Am I the only mommy still rocking, swaying, and holding my LO to sleep? It is sad to admit but my LO has no self soothing ability. He is 4 months today and he still can't go to sleep on his own. Laying him down awake or groggy is still a pipedream. Both my H and ped think sleep training is the way we should go and while I'm not opposed to it, I keep putting it off.
LO had surgery at 4 weeks and couldn't sleep anywhere for more than 30 minutes. Ped told us to hold him b/c he needed to rest and recover, but here we are a few months later and I'm still holding him for all naps and rocking/walking/swaying him during the night. Even to cosleep, I have to rock to sleep first and then try and sneak into bed w/ out waking. I know I've created the problem I just can't seem to fix it. Feels like I've tried everything but wanted to come back to the drawing board and ask you ladies? I'm hoping to give it another week of trying but both DH and I are nearing our wits end. TIA!
