Help!! My baby boy is 6 months and about 2 weeks ago he started waking up in the middle of the night and would scream and cry. Some nights he would wake up screaming before even crying. He sleeps in the same room as me, just in his own crib. My husband and I decided we would let him cry it out to get himself to self soothe and fall back asleep (he's already pretty good about falling asleep on his own at bedtime but when he wakes up in the middle of the night he won't do it). We let him cry for 2 hours the other night (which I can't do again, it was just too hard). I work during the day so can't keep him on a strict sleep-feed-play-sleep schedule. when he is at the sitters he sleeps 2-3 hours in the morning and then 1-2 hours in the afternoon. I've tried adjusting his bedtime but nothing seems to work. The only thing that has worked to get him to stop crying is to bring him in my bed with me. Before this started he never slept in my bed he always slept in a crib next to my bed. Any suggestions!?
