A little over a week ago I decided to start using the Ferber method to get my dd to sleep in her own crib in her own room. We were bed sharing basically since birth but as soon as she hit 6 months she started to get really restless at night and no one was sleeping.
The first night she cried 37 minutes, then slept through the night..and she slept through the night for 3 nights in a row. The fourth night she woke up at 3:AM for a feeding, but went back to bed as soon as she was fed. After that it went down hill pretty much. She started waking up between 9-10 pm for a feeding, then when placed back in her crib she would cry for about 20-30 minutes before falling back asleep. Then she would wake again at 1:30-2:30 am and the same thing. I finally got so sick of listening to her cry half the night that I brought her back into bed with me when her 2:30 waking happened.
Now for the past few nights she will go down initially to sleep (only cries 2-5 minutes IF she cries) but then around 9-10 pm she will wake up and it is VERY hard to get her to go back to sleep.
I hate listening to her cry, and I know she is crying just to be picked up because I feed her and change her when she does wake up. I just don't know what to do anymore...I'm hoping some of the BTDT moms can give me some insight....Do I just leave her be and check up on her every now and then until she gets it...or what? I'm getting so frustrated lol. Help.
