My son is now nine months old and he stilldoes not sleep threw the night. He wont even sleep in his crib. I got him used to sleeping in his playpen but when we got his crib last month that all stopped and I just dont know what to do. I really need a good nights sleep. getting up any where from two to three times a night is really starting to affedct me. I dont know what to do. I rally do not like the cry it out method. does any one have any ideas?

when my dd started waking at 5 months i went to plunket and they told me: leave to cry 1 min then go in put them back down walk out go back after two mins go in pt them down (which is hard cos they cling to you but you have to do it, no harm done at the end of the day just sucks at the time) then 3 mins and 4 etc.

It takes three nights to break a habbit.

The first night I had to go in heaps of times 2nd night not so many and third night she went to sleep and slept through and never had the problem again.

As i say it was hard but sooo worth it in the end, but when you start you have to follow through just think to yourself if i give up now everything ive done so far will be for nothing.

Good luck :)
