controlled crying

posted 1 decade 6 years ago
well seeing as we should have done this months ago we have tried the controlled crying method of getting Dylan to sleep this week.

We read our Super Nanny Book, checked out details online, took in stock of Coffee and Buiscuits, put on the Tin hat and prepared for War and..........he's cracked it already!! he even went in his cot wide awake last night and got himself off to sleep Very happy Very happy Very happy

So our fear and dread was not needed.....and for the first time since he was born, my Wife and I can finally get a full nights sleep Very happy

We did this from the first nite home with our son and we didn't give up by day two we also had sufficient sleep even though we had to feed every two to three hours as our son was premmie.

we did this with ethan from about 8months (when he went into his own room) it worked brilliantly but the past month hes been a complete bugger! hes in his own big bed now and in the night - usually about 4am - gets up and comes into our bed! i think im gonna padlock our bedroom door lol!

I did controlled crying and I think it works so well. It is hard to begin with and can be upsetting but you just have to be strong
