DCKate:Ferber isn't right for our family, but in looking to hear how others have used no cry sleep solution or others successfully.

Same here. I guess you could say we are winging it....
We aren't sleep training at all.
ETA somehow my answer got mixed in with another! We are not sidecribing it!
We are using No Cry Sleep Solution, but it's been a very gradual thing. I am not yet too concerned with him falling asleep on his own yet. We are just beginning to work on naps in the crib. One thing at a time. I like her methods, they have a nice gentle touch but require quite a bit of patience and consistency. We have used the advice in the book to set up bedtime routines, and get our activites before bedtime in check. We have also used it to lessen his sudden dependence on his paci after we deswaddled. We have also used it to encourage him to self soothe at night when he wakes up and is not hungry. (he wakes once for a motn feeding and any other time he is awesome now and going right back to sleep-we never pick him up at those times anymore).
Ferber wasn't for us either. Jack was already a pretty good sleeper. He just needed/needs light guidance. If he was a terrible sleeper my approach might have changed with my increasing tiredness...lol...who knows.
82Sonia:We're not sleep training at all. I know it must work for a lot of people but I'm of the mindset that she'll get there on her own.
I agree with this.
This is my viewpoint exactly. She goes down pretty easily and is up 1-2 times per night for short periods of time. I'm ok with this. Sometimes she ends up in our bed but that's more because I miss her during the work week when I work later. I am trusting that it will all work out in the end.
I put him down awake, he goes to sleep on his own, but if/when he gets up in the middle of the night I go to him & don't leave until he is sleeping. I don't need him waking my oldest up and honestly - whatever works for your family is the way to go.
nope - CIO isn't right for us.
we have been very lucky with sleep with our kids though...both sleep through the night and have since 3 months.
DS2 doesn't nap though....
st.augbride:We are trying Ferber right now but I hate it and would rather not. Day 1 was ok. Day 2 was terrible, terrible, terrible and I thought each day was supposed to be easier. The thing is that I have NO problem feeding her at night and getting up a few times. What is hard is that she won't settle in her crib and only wants to be next to me in bed while on the boob, which doesn't work when she goes down at 78pm and I do after 11pm. Usually I wait until she is sleeping and slip out, but then she wakes 3060 min later and wants to start all over. So I somehow need to get her in the crib, but the crying feels terrible :
