I need some advice....
we've just taught our little guy Aiden to fall asleep on his own at nap time and bedtime (cry it out) now we can put him in crib awake (sometimes drowsy) and he'll fall asleep usually with no crying!....however he still is waking at night 2x (they say once they learn to fall asleep on their own, they will Fall Back Asleep when waking at night)
well this hasn't happened....he stands up crying (can be anytime) during the night and then wakes around 4am and i give him a bottle then back to be to about 6 am (he goes to bed at 7:30pm)
should i just leave him in there to cry and maybe he'll learn to fall back on his own...right now i go in and pick him up or try to pat him on his back......picking him up, he falls right back asleep-but i guess he expects this?
he naps 2x a day for 1.5 hrs each-
his morning nap is usually 8:30 am because he is sooo tired and second nap is 1 pm or so.....so it is a long stretch from waking 2:30 or so to bedtime at 7:30.....
i guess i should try and push the naps too back ?
any help would be sooo appreciated!
