Man, the anti-Ferber people are going to go NUTS when they read this.

What doesn't make sense: Why would you ever start co-sleeping after "training the child in obedience" to sleep in her own bed????

OP, I think you should review the Ferber method, which is not a "cry it out" method, but does involve leaving the child in her room for gradually longer periods of time.

Be sure to read how it is actually supposed to work, though, because you don't just leave the baby in there to cry all night.



About 3 months ago I was struggling to get my baby to sleep and after many visits to the doctor,
sleepless nights and countless hours spent online looking for something for my child but nothing
worked.

I called and spoke to numerous daycare centers and child care places to see if anyone knew
what could help my child. It was really hurting me watching my baby go through this ordeal night
after night not being able to sleep feeling helpless and unable to help at the same time.

It was by chance one day that I was in a chemist looking up some medications and speaking to
the lady behind the counter and she told me about a product that her daughter had been using
on her grand daughter and she told me to give her my contact and she would email it to me.

The product was a life saver; within a few days my child was back to normal and sleeping again
soundly and it was cheaper than everything else I tried.

Here is the product : [url]http://bit.ly/2mF67PJ[/url]

I am a huge advocate of this product and have told all my family and friends about this product
and some of my girl friends have started using it and also swear by it. I honestly canít thank that
lady enough for what she has done for my child especially. I am sharing this in the hope that it also help someone one day!

They were older and more compliant, and besides that, the next child bumped them out.

He had adopted such a sleep association to nursing that he woke to nurse many times a night. He was a miserable cranky baby. I thought he had collick. I only realized that HE was exhausted when it was almost time for me to go back to work. I was exhausted. We read the Ferber book (It is called Solving Your Child's Sleep Problems). We instantly recognized the sleep association issue. Three days later, he was a happy sleeping baby.

I recognize that cosleeping works for some people. I imagine that they have found ways to transition out of it that can be gentle. But the poster who advocates setting the expectation of cosleeping with your child just to yank the rug out from under them later does not make sense to me.

Thanks for the all the input. I'm going to research the Ferber method more.

It reviews the major approaches towards sleep, including co-sleeping and Ferber, in a pretty balanced manner and makes step-by-step recommendations depending on which approach you decide to try. Just another resource to check out. Good luck, I know it feels like sleep problems will last forever when we are in the middle of them!

Us too. They slept in their own room down the hall. If they did have a problem getting to sleep, I left them in their crib and patted their back lighter and lighter until they went to sleep. I also used flannel sheets in the winter so the cold sheets wouldn't be a shock after cuddling and stories.
