... all he did was cry and I had to pick him up per Ferber when it went too long. ... (7 replies)
... anyway, i don't know a lot about the ferber method. i am all for the whole cry it out thing, where you don't get them at all and let them pass out from exhaustion. ... (7 replies)
... May I suggest something? I myself did the Ferberizing (semi-CIO). Ferber wrote that we all become creatures of habit - the body learns that it's supposed to feel hungry at certain times, etc. A 7mo should be capable of not needing feeding in the middle of the night. Since babies start out needing feeding in the night, and most of us acquiesce to the bottle (or... (10 replies)

... and do things, we just stick to mealtimes and naptimes around the same time every day and plan the rest of our day around those. In addition, she recommended the Ferber book solving your child's sleep problems. ... (16 replies)
... Sounds like he's just conditioned to eating and sleeping in your bed after the crib. Per Ferber, his body is used to eating in the middle of the night and can be "weaned" off it. I gradually got my baby away from eating mid-night much earlier. In this case it was basically, shave the timing down by about 5 minutes a few nights (you can do less if you want). If he eats 15...

... hey there, i was reading a book by Brazelton and he said that moving is really stressful for a toddler. and that there sleep would probably be interupted, so i am guessing it's the move. also, during these months up to 18m, our little ones (my dd is 15m) are dealing with a lot of insecurities and a low self-esteem. i have found that praising dd with lots (and i mean lots)...

Letting baby cry
Oct 17, 2008
... since start of August, when he was 5 mos. We did the Ferber and it's been good. Been great as far as overnight sleeping. He generally will sleep 9 hrs straight. ... (11 replies)
... I have never had a child before this 5-mo old, so I really can't say much. But from Ferber's descriptions, it may again be a problem of what she expects you to be doing when she's sleeping. He says this is a problem of sleep associations. Let's assume that is correct. She's assuming you'll still be there holding her, rocking her, and her music will be playing, etc. ... (6 replies)
... little too young to let them cry it out, but for the poster whose baby is 5 months, I highly recommend the book Solve Your Child's Sleep Problems by Dr. Richard Ferber if all else fails and you can't get them to fall alseep without crying or screaming bloody murder. ... (9 replies)
... That is a common set of things to do, which are often misunderstood. Even Ferber is against letting a child cry for long periods of time alone. It's about routines and basic conditioning. He has an updated book as well. ... (11 replies)
... I believe it's hazardous because it seriously jeopardizes a babies sleep, which is imperative to their physical and mental development. Like MJcota said, Ferber dictates a schedule, which by the 7th day, leaves a child screaming for as long 45 minutes. ... (14 replies)
... I think the beauty of AP'ing is that it really validates how each child is an individual. Dr. Ferber suggests every 6 month old baby needs to sleep on their own, or at least be "sleep conditioned" to start sleeping on their own. ... (59 replies)
... Cry" in her sleep solution, so that didn't work. Our doc said to just let her cry and don't go in there, but that was too harsh, so we settled in the middle with Ferber and managed CIO. ... (2 replies)
... picking her up because she was screaming, only made her scream harder because that was what I was inadvertently teaching her to do. I would highly recommend the Ferber book Solve Your Child's Sleep Problems to get them to sleep when they need to sleep. ... (16 replies)
... I am not a big fan of letting your baby cry it out, and for the last 6 months, people have been telling me to do it. But on the news last night, was Dr. Richard Ferber himself, basically saying it was wrong. He has all of these parents upset for telling them to do this for the last 2 decades. ... (20 replies)
... I know it sounds cold, but the Ferber method really worked for us. It took two days and it was done. ... (2 replies)
... so we decided to do the ferber method to get her into her crib and to sleep through the night and at nap time. it took a solid 2 weeks for her to finally accept her crib. ... (3 replies)
... I have a 4 1/2 month old son who will NOT sleep. He won't nap, he won't sleep at night for more than an hour at a time. We have tried everything that we can think of from swaddling, to his swing, to white noise/soft music, cereal before bed, etc. He will nap during the day, only if he is swaddled, in his swing, in the bathroom, with the fan on, and even then he won't sleep...

... Worked for me and my 1 baby! Well at least overnight; naps didn't work. We started him at 5 mos and over the weekend (in hindsight) he was doing well with 8-hr sleeps. He woke up middle of night once more a couple weeks later and cried a while, and another time later for a bit. Otherwise, George has "slept through the night" since 5 months and is 9 months today. He also... (3 replies)
... I thought I was strong enough to try the CIO method... I was not! My son is 17 months old, sometimes he'll go to sleep in his crib by himself, but most of the time, I hold him until he falls asleep. When he wakes in the middle of the night, we can tell if he's fully awake or not, and if not, then we let him fuss, and he'll go back to sleep, but if he is awake, I go get him... (3 replies)
