I am a mom of a 4 year old little girl and a one year old little boy and i have to say that with my daughter sleeping was a little bit better than with my son. We never really had to leave my daughter to cry it out because she wouldn't want to sleep, she eventually fell asleep on her own but still woke up several times at night until now, she sleeps all night. Gabriel is another story, he has been teething since 3 months old and still at one year old no teeth but we know that is what bothers him at night sometimes. He used to sleep alot more in his crib at night but lately he just doesn't want to. He ends up in our bed but we take him back when he falls asleep which doesn't take long. We have tried the cry it out method and i have to say that it is just not for him. We don't like to hear him in distress and at the same token it really doesn't work on him. I guess for some babies it works for others it doesn't and i am just hoping and praying that once he gets a little older and he has his own toddler bed, he will outgrow this situation we are having now.. He starts out in his crib until about 1am or 3am and from there just doesn't want to be in there...
