My son is 22 months old and trying to get him to sleep on his on or through the night is impossible. He has his morning nap at 12 to 1 which is fine I bring him to bed at 8 half 8 can take up to an hour to get him to sleep yes I rock him to sleep walk the walls with him to go to sleep I know it's such a bad thing to do he then falls asleep at wakes at 12 it then takes two hours to try get him back to sleep as all he is doing is crying after finally settling him he will then wake a 3 4 and 6 and then he wakes a half 6 7 for the day we'll until morning nap.. I am so tired I have a older son who is 7 he wakes at 6.30 every morning which is fine he goes to sleep at 7pm but I do be so tired after been up all night, I have read all about the cry it out method is this my only option I feel it's so cruel and I'm so weak I will probably give in I really need sleep hope I'm not the only looper that rocks there near two year old to sleep.

Thanks

Thank you for the response, I have even tried putting him into my bed with me he still does not settle I have him off the bottles a week now as all he would drink was juice and I was concerned about his teeth and sugar in take. I feel like nothen I do for him works for him to sleep, I feel I have tried everything 😴😴😴

I didn't rock him to sleep... but I did nurse him to sleep until he was 3. He did night wean at 2 and start sleeping through the night, but before that point he was awake to nurse 1-5 times/night...

He'll be 8 in March and our beds were right next to each other (so he was in my bed a lot) up until 2 years ago... and I still lay next to him every night until he falls asleep.

You are not alone and there is nothing wrong w/ doing what you need to do in order to get some sleep. The fact that he is awake crying for 2 hours in the middle of the night is not good for anyone though and I'd be doing whatever I needed to do in order to get that to stop. He's already crying... so how is CIO going to get him to stop? That doesn't seem logical.

Good luck!
