Hey ladies. I know I've been MIA for a couple months but I have an issue I could use some feedback on. Sorry in advance if you've already discussed this.
I am working with A on falling asleep on his own. Since he was 3 months old, I have stood next to his crib while he falls asleep, holding his hand, helping him keep his paci in, rubbing his belly, etc. I realize that it is probably past time to teach him to just fall asleep without me in the room, and I'm sure it will help with our nighttime sleep issues too (he is still not STTN).
My problem is that he constantly pulls himself up to stand if I leave him alone in his crib. I have gone in and laid him back down about 10x for this nap alone and it has been over an hour. He's not crying but he is clearly exhausted. What do I do short of staying in the room with him??
