My husband and I have started controlled crying with our LO and we are on Night 4 and have had great success so far- but just in the nights :( ... Saying the Daytime Naps are hard is an understatement and I have actually resorted to my old method of just bringing him back to bed with me (I work from home so naps are integral to getting stuff done). Today was especially bad (and this doesn't happen often) he was especially moany and clingy and even though he woke up at 6am. He didn't want to nap until 11.30 and then he only slept for 45 mins and not again till 7.30.
I know I'm rambling ( ;) ), but just wanted to add that he prior to CC training dropped his morning nap and only napped from 12-3pm and then slept by 8 sometimes 9, sometimes 9.30. With CC he is now in bed by 8 and sleeps until 12. Gets a bottle (my son eats like a trooper) goes back down where he settles in less than 3 mins now (took at least 30 mins before). Will wake up at 4ish wanting to come to bed with us, at which time I lie awake and do CC. Then he is up at 6 sometimes 7.
If any Mom out there can give me some advice or help or guidance I would be so grateful.
Thanks millions xo
