Hello everyone, First time mom here. Need advice! Our baby is 5.5 months old and for the first time ever, we let him "cry it out" last night. Placed in him bassinett, he protested, I went it for a minute to reassure/console, then waited 3 minutes.... second time waited 5 minutes, third 10 minutes, etc. It took a full hour but then he fell asleep for 6 solid hours!!!! amazing! Now....my question is, do I have to do this exact same method for day time naps and do I do that NOW? or should I establish night time sleep first then worry about naptime later? he mostly sleeps in his swing (or on me) during the day. Would appreciate hearing your stories!! ps I'm a stay at home mom at the moment. loving every second of it. Wish I could just hold and cuddle with him 24/7!
