We are trying to stop rocking my 10 week old daughter to sleep. We started to rock her for only 5 minutes only. The moment she senses she's going to go down for a nap, she starts to cry hysterically. We started to let her cry it out, patting her every 5-10 minutes. Sometimes, she will cry for over an hour and by that time it's already time for her next feeding and she misses a nap. She has colic and is very sensitive to noise. I refused to use a pacifier but I did today and she fell asleep immediately. I don't want her to get into the habit of using this. Suggestions? Is she too young for this method? Help!
