My son is unfortunately still not sleeping through the night. It seems there is always a reason for him not to. Teething, dad traveling, disruption of schedule, stuffy nose, sick, family visit etc. I'm beyond exhausted at this point (I'm the one who gets up with him every night) but I'm still not willing to let him cry it out. I respect people who decide that that is the way to go for them but it's not for me. So is there anyone out there who has a different idea that I might try? Unfortunately he's not attached to anything like a blanket, toy, etc. and he's also not taking to sippy cups yet (I've heard people leave sippy cups with water with their babies). Any tips would be appreciated.
