Hi everyone! My daughter, Juliette, is not the greatest sleeper, but she's doing a lot better than she was at 2 months. Beginning at four months, my husband and I are going to "Ferberize" and try sleep training. Before that time (about 3 weeks) I would like to get rid of 1-2 nightfeedings so she's only waking once during the night. She's demonstrated once or twice that she can go 7 hours without eating at night, so I know she's ready to stop feeding. However, I have no clue how to get her back to sleep when she's rooting and crying. I know she's hungry, but sometimes she'll only eat for one or two minutes and then fall right back asleep. I've tried having her suck on my finger, but she knows it's a trick and gets extra frustrated. Any ideas?
