My son just turned 7 months old. Before he was 5 months old, he would go to sleep when I laid him in his crib. Then he got sick and I rocked him to sleep when he was sick for approximatley 3 weeks. Ever since then, he has been dependent on me to rock him to sleep. I started to let him cry himslef to sleep 4 days ago because he isn't hungry, and doesn't have a wet diaper; he just wants me to rock him to sleep. So far it seems that the time spent crying is decreasing and he is falling asleep faster (it started about 45 minutes, now hes asleep in approximatly 10-15 minutes) I was wondering what type of schedule you have for your baby, and if you have tried the "cry it out" method. I am asking for people who can relate and if it worked or not, if you want to criticize, make it helpful.
