I'm at my wits' end. I've decided to sleep train my LO, not exactly crying it out, we will check on him if he's really crying. If he's just whining, we wait it out.
He'll start to doze off while sitting up and pretty much looks like a drunk drifting in and out of sleep. He'll do this for about 10 minutes before I TRY to go in and lay him down because he seems to be asleep (via baby monitor), but the second we crack the door an inch he freaks out and starts crying all over again.
This has gone on for the last 1 1/2 hours. He hasn't been screaming the entire time, but I've tried to go in and lay him down twice and when he sees the door move, he starts all over again and we're at square one.
We did this last night, but it took only 20 minutes because it was way past his bedtime and we were all exhausted, he just fell asleep sitting up against the railing and H went in to lay him down.
Today, trying the same thing, not working!
What am I doing wrong? What should I change??? I put him down at 6:30 and it's now 8! He's currently sitting up in bed looking around, sleepily and I don't know how to get him to fall asleep properly!
