Getting SO on board w/ sleep method

How do you get your SO on board with your sleep training? I am okay with CIO and been doing well with it. At least until DH takes her. Then it goes down the tube and I have to start over. He doesn't think that she has sleep issues, and just wakes up hungry. She will wake up faithfully at 1130, 4, and 6. I know she's not hungry because she will only eat maybe an oz. 

 Back to my question- How do you get your SO on board with sleep training?

  • Is he the one who gets up with her? Maybe give him this weekend and once he sees himself that she is only eating an ounce at a time that will show him she's not actually hungry.
  • Have him read the same book that you have read.  :)

    I have tried, but I BF at night. I might just have to try it though. He will probably pull the "well she went back to sleep didn't she?"

    You make it should easy! lol.  

    Before I tried sleep training I made DH read a chapter out of Ferber. I just narrowed it down to the one most important chapter that explained how to do it. I knew if I tried to get him to *gasp* read a whole book he never would. It really helped to have him understand what we were doing.
