since the day we brought him home, hes only slept thru the night 3 times. with no waking whatsoever. hes at a point now where he wakes at least 2 or 3 times from between 830pm and 7 am. hes easily consolable and will go back to sleep quickly, but the thing is....if i dont go in there and console him and pop paci back in, he will continue to cry until i do. what should i do ? i understand broken sleep comes with the being a mommy package, but for his sake and mine 9 months in, any suggestions to make life easier on us both would be appreciated.

Im in the same boat... and I just decided to give up on the paci. Did the first nap without.. a little cying but slept though... lets see how it goes. I definetely think the mais problem is the paci.. My boy is 8 motnhs old. I think he wants the paci to fall back sleep and thats what makes difficult for him to settle down by himself.

How old is he? Is he old enough to put his paci in his mouth his self?Can he find the paci when he wakes up or is he just wanting his mommy? If its just him wanting a paci, try to make sure he has a night light or any light so he can find the paci when he wakes up and try to put more than one paci in his bed so he is sure to find it.
