Teaching a six month to fall asleep on his ownI have a six month old boy, I have
in the past rocked him to sleep with a soother, not knowing it would cause me trouble down the road. I recently tried the crying it out method, while checking on him every few minutes. I felt very discouraged after he continued to cry for three hours. is this normal for the first few times? Will he eventually fall asleep? How long do i let him cry? I would really love to help him to teach him to fall asleep on his own but i'm feeling discouraged. Any advice, please help.
