Anyone had success with the No Cry Sleep Solution?

I am wondering if anyone out there has had success with the "No Cry Sleep Solution". My son slept really well for the first 6 months of life, then due to sickness or teething or whatever it has changed. Now he wakes every two hours and wants to breast feed to go back to sleep. He also has not been napping this week which is new. He did just get four teeth in two weeks ago, so maybe that has something to do with it, and has started crawling in the last week. Please tell me there is hope, and with out letting him cry, 'cause I just can't do that.

I don't and won't let my baby girl "cry it out". She has been sleeping through the night since she was about 2 months old. Now she sleeps between 10 to 13 hours a night. I think that what is a really important thing for her a night is routine. We try really hard to keep every night the exact same when we're putting her to bed. I think babies thrive on routine. When she has a cold or for some (not all) of her teeth coming in her sleep patterns do change a little. The best thing I do is ride it out and still keep her night time routines the same. They will eventually get back in the swing of things once they're themselves again.

My little boy has been sleeping through the night since he was 1month old. We bought a relaxing cd for him and lit some incence (don't let it go for to long, will be to over powering) We now have a few cd's to choose from, If you go into any cd shop you should find relaxation music (i found rain to be the best one). When you buy the incence try lavender. Hope this works.

Also I don't like letting my boy cry but my mother-inlaw cuddled my husband to sleep when he was a baby and she had to cuddle him till he was a couple of years old. They get to used to it and expect it all the time. I'm not saying don't at all cause I cuddle my boy sometimes, just try not to do it ALL the time. :-)

I tried The No Cry Sleep Solution, and MANY other books. Some aspects of it worked, but for a short time. I felt the same about not letting my son cry it out. I was ultra sleep deprived and desperate, so we hired a baby sleep consultant. It was the best decision we ever ever ever made. Google Baby Sleep Consultant in your area and see what comes up. Our sleep consultant is based out of Vancouver.

Our son is almost 9 months old and we have been successfully sleeping through the night (and much better napping!) for 3 weeks now. Its amazing.

Your baby being so active and getting teeth is definetely a couple of reasons as to why he's waking up. i hv never let my little girl cry it out...i can't do it. for the first 6 months she used to fall asleep in my arms until i knew she was ready to indepenedently fall asleep on her own in her cot. when she wakes up during the night (which she has been for the last couple of weeks), i pick her up, sit on the rocker with her and give her a cuddle. After 5 mins of cuddling her, i put her back to bed and she eventually falls asleep. I have tried to let her cry a few times but i just can't do that to her. I am happy with the 'no cry' solution. My routine is working well. I want her to be a happy baby...not a sad and distressed baby!
