So... I am trying the "put your baby down while drousy but still awake, let him cry and go back in every 10 min to pat/sush/kiss but don't pick up" problem is, he keeps rolling over and throwing a HUGE fit! We have a good day routine that he is used to and does really well. Then we have a bedtime routine of bath, song/rock then I lay him down. I used to get him whenever he would cry and rock/breastfeed him or just let him sleep with us but I am trying to make him sleep on his own without getting up so much during the night. I just started trying to put him down while still kind of awake and leave. Then he starts crying. ALOT!Whenever I go back in hes on his tummy, turned around, and trying to sit up. I just don't see how he could possibly fall asleep that way. It seems like he is getting too worked up and letting him "cry it out" is not going to work. HELP!
