Oh my gosh I am so happy.
DD has been sleeping in the swing for months now due to reflux and I have been dreading getting her to the crib and sleep training.
I read Dr. Ferbers book and started on Monday this week. Started with bath, massage, song, nurse, crib. Woke three times overnight but nursed and went down ok each time. No crying, just awake a lot.
Tuesday... Slept seven to five, ate once, back down till six thirty. Same Wednesday.
I was worried about naps and nursing to sleep but she has been popping herself off my boob and I put her down awake by Thursday night and she was asleep in five minutes!
We made it with absolutely no tears and I really think introducing what Ferber called the transition object...in our case two of those tiny AA security blankets. She cuddles those and out she goes! I am sure we will have plenty of setbacks but it made me so happy to have it go well.
