I am having a heck of a time sleep training my 4.5mo old little boy. He is literally attached to me. He will only sleep if i am holding him. He screams his little head off if i put him down, and always wakes up if I put him down while hes sleeping.
To make matters more complicated, I cannot simply allow him to cry during the day for nap time. My husband works nights 6pm-6:30am, so he has to sleep during the day. He works Sun-Wed nights and I work Thurs-Sat days. I am curious if anyone has any "miracle" tips for sleep training the little guy. Im working on doing better at letting him cry it out at night time, but I also have a 5 year old so it seems as though someone else is always trying to sleep, making a noisy sleep training session pretty much impossible.
Thanks for any advice!
