I keep hoping there is some magical way to get DS to sleep on his own. I read, yet another sleep book, this time by Dr. Jay Gordon. I borrowed it this time, cause I've spent way too much money on sleep books! And I've concluded that there is no magical way to get DS to sleep by himself.
The more I read though, the more I am determined to not let DS CIO. So I've gotten used to wearing him for naps. And fortunately, with the BECO, I can actually sit down and he won't wake up. Although if I sit, he only naps for 30-45 minutes, whereas if I stand, he'll sleep 2 hours!
And we bedshare, so night sleep is decent. Although he still prefers to sleep with me holding him vs lying next to me. I feel bad for DH, cause we rarely get to have sex cause I'm holding DS almost all the time. How do we get around this?
Anyways. So I guess it's just a lot of hard work and patience. I do like hearing successful sleep stories! So share if you have any!
