I started it last night (didn't do so well), and I just used it for Wyatt's nap today. He's been asleep for the past two hours. I need some encouragement! It's hard doing this completely on your own.
Did any of you guys have success?
I am tweaking it a bit. He's sleeping in my room still, as opposed to my bed. I'm not ready for him to be in his own room yet.
And I have picked him up a few times instead of just patting him on the back and walking out of the room shortly after. I figure he'll just get sick of being picked up and put back down a million times that he'll get the picture.
How did you guys get your kid's to sleep through the night? Oh, let me just mention that Wyatt has never slept on his own for longer than 2-3 hours. EVER. Not once. EVER. So, if he does ever sleep through the night, I think I might go running through the streets naked. That's how psyched I'd be.
Oh, and just a little FYI, in case you all were wondering..
- He's still breastfed
- He hates the bottle
- He doesn't take pacifiers anymore
- He uses nursing as a form of comfort and that's how I normally calm him. It works for every situation.
- Before I started this Ferberizing thing, we co-slept and he permanently nursed all night. I sleep with my boob in his mouth ALL NIGHT LONG.
OKAY GO! GIVE ADVICE OH WISE ONES.
