DD has had some very bad sleep habits if you remember me posting about them at all-it has been taking us 2+ hours for her to fall asleep each night and she's waking 2-3 times overnight---we try soothing for awhile and I usually end up nursing her to calm her down.
Anyways, her pediatrician suggested at her appt last week to let her cry-definitely when putting her to bed and overnight as well if it has been a short time since she was last up.
We started last Wed and the putting her down thing has gone really well-the first 2 nights she cried 20mins, 10min the 3rd night and barely anything since.
Our problem is overnight-she seems to wake like clockwork at 1130 and 4am (ocasionally between them at 2am)....the 1130 one we tried having her cry-she usually will cry 20-30min then fall asleep but last night it went for an hour-I finally fed her because I had to be up for work today (yes I was being selfish). The 4am waking I always feed her since it's a long stretch. Any advice on the night waking ones? I hate to feed her if shes not really hungry (she'll eat if its in front of her no matter what)-I dont want her in the habit of waking at that time-and I'm fearing she might already be since she does wake up within minutes of that time every night.
