I am asking for support for my 9 month old with controlled crying/ CIO. I realise a lot of mums are against the idea and I understand their point of view.
I just wondered what your experiences with controlled crying are. My baby is now almost 9 months. We did this at 6 months and it worked after 3 nights and we slept well for 2 months. However my baby's sleep got bad again around 3 weeks ago and I tried a few things and have decided to strictly do controlled crying again. I go in at intervals of 2, 4, 6 and 8 minutes with intervals of patting him. Last time it worked after only 3 nights. But I wonder if this will take longer. Yesterday at nap time, he cried for 1 hour 45 mins. Last night at 3am, he cried for 1 hour 15 mins. I hope tonight will be less.
