Last night I decided to try the "Cry it out Method" with my baby. He is a good sleeper but he always (95%) for the times wake up in the middle of the night to eat. 3 months ago his doctor suggested that I'd let him cry back to sleep, because he is not really hungry, just used to the habbit and compensating during the day. I was never able to do it. But, last night I was on a playdate with a bunch of other babies and the moms thought it would be good to do it and that in a few days he would sleep through the night. He has no trouble falling asleep, but always wake up to drink his bottle (lately just 4 oz) and right back to sleep. NEVER stays up.
Anyway, last night I decided to give it a try and it BROKE MY HEART IN MILLION PIECES!!! He cried for 40 minutes! But, eventually fell asleep. I was so upset, but I believe (?) it will be better for him in the end.
Has anyone tried? Did it work? How long did it take?
