Rain on my parade — The Bump
Babies: 6 - 9 Months

Rain on my parade

Currently on night 4 of Ferber and DS fell asleep after 3 minutes of fussing/babbling! I was so thrilled that I expressed my excitement to my FB friends and OF COURSE...there's one mom on there who had to discourage me. She told me to be careful using that method because a couple of her friends who used it have had sleep problems like night terrors develop during the toddler years. Ugh...way to ruin my moment of parental bliss. :(

Re: Rain on my parade

  • Umm toddler night terrors are normal and happen to all kids... Or can happen to all kids... Ferber or not. Ferber teaches a skill or doesn't mean it's magic and your kids will never wake again....

    Good job ma ma cio is hard work

  • If you are determined then keep going with it. You are mommy. Try not to let outside comments in. People are always wanting to give unwanted advice.

  • Congrats on your progress!

    I read the Ferber book and used it with good success. And long before Ferber (in the 1960s & 70s), my parents had all four of us kids CIO at 4 months age, and none of us had night terrors.

    Lastly, if for some reason a child does develop it, Ferber's book addresses it along with other sleep issues (such as sleep walking, bed wetting, head banging, and so on).

  • I'm so glad I did it.  It took about 4 - 5 days for us. And in less than 2 weeks he was doing 11-12 hr stretches.  It is so nice now... I put him to bed at 8, and don't see him again till 7am.

    That's awesome!! We are still working on longer stretches...right now he's 9-10 hours tops!! But his morning nap has gotten longer - went from 40-50 minutes to 2 hours most days!!

  • Not knowing your friend aside, I think she means well. A lot of moms tend to try to be wells of advice even if the advice is unsolicited.This has been my experience at least. Unless she was malicious, I would just chalk it up to her trying to pass along some advice.
