My LO is a very well behaved our only problem is getting him to fall asleep on his own and to stay asleep. This week we started the cry it out method. We established a bed time routine at about 7:30 pm and then Sunday night he cried for about 1 hour, then Monday night he cried for 45 min, third night was 55 min and the the fourth night which was last night he cried for an hour and 10 minutes. I am wondering how long I should keep trying this if it doesn't get any better. Also once he does fall asleep he wakes up crying again within an hour. Then he will go back to sleep if I hold him then I will put him back down in his bed and he will sleep for a few hours and then wakes up crying. I am breastfeeding and when he wakes up he expects to eat but I don't know if I should feed him or just put him back to sleep. Also I don't know if I should pick him up when he wakes up in the middle of the night or let him scream it out which I'm afraid will be another hour each time. If anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated!!
