Ok, so I'm at my wits end! I never minded getting up and nursing my son back to sleep but it's starting to take a toll on me. My now 9 mo old wants to wake up every 2 hours to eat and I can get any sleep! It's physically taking a toll on my mind and body. So as a last resort I'm trying to cry it out. I know he's well old enough to sleep through the night without feeding. So here's my questions
1) they suggest going in to reassure him. This is my biggest problem if I go into our room and let my presence be know then leave he will go into a full fledged tantrum. I'm talking screaming banging on the walls to the point where it sounds like he's hyperventilating. I feel as if checking on him makes the matter worse. So what should I do?
2) am I supposed to let him cry it out every single time he wakes up throughout the night? Which is a total of 3-4 times? How will I ever sleep.
I understand some of your are against this method, if you are please leave your comments to yourself ! Raise your children however you like, and I'll do the same with mine!
