I've just started reading The No Cry Sleep Solution by Elizabeth Pantley in hopes my 7 month old will get a better night sleep and longer naps during the day. I know a this age she still needs night feedings but I wish she wouldn't wake up so often (5-6 times a night). Most of my friends (one in particular) are suggesting to let her cry it out now that she's 7 months but the research I've found is overwhelmingly opposed to the cry it out method. I'm hoping this book will lead to her sleeping longer in a gentle and nurturing way. I've hear great things about this book but that you need to take it slow. On the other hand I've heard that it doesn't work from parents who gave into the cry it out method.
So I thought of posting this on here considering I don't know any parents who practice attachment parenting and I'd like their opinion rather than parents who are ok with letting their babies cry.
What methods in this book helped your baby's sleep, if any at all?
I should mention my baby is breastfed, currently trying solids through baby led weaning and sleeps in her crib at arms length from my side of the bed (she's a tummy sleeper).
