  • I had to Ferberize mine. Are you really trying Ferber (do you have the book, have read it, and are sticking with it) or did you try cry it out and called it Ferber? Ferber's method is not CIO. They will cry, but you also go in there regularly to let them know you didn't abandon them. Ferber was great for us.

    When I Ferbered my first, she was 13 months old and it took nearly two weeks. With my second baby, I had learned my lesson and Ferbered at 7 months. It only took 3 days.
