My little guy is 9 months, and we just started sleep training (ugh, I hate that phrase!). This is night 4. He goes to sleep just fine, but wakes often. When he wakes up, he will cry for a minute or two and then stop. He doesn't go to sleep, though. I'll wait about 10 minutes and then go check on him. Maybe 2 or 3 times he's gone back to sleep, but all of the other times he's just sitting in the crib and starts crying when he sees me. I lay him on his back, tell him it's sleepy time, Pat his chest, and sing a little song. He stops crying as soon as I lay him on his back, and his eyes get heavy. Sometimes he's asleep when I finish the song, sometimes he drifts off after. I've found a lot of info about babies that cry and cry, but what does it mean that he doesn't cry, but doesn't go to sleep? Am I doing damage? I know that he can drift off by himself because I've watched it happen. Has anyone else experienced this?
