My daughter Erin is 5 months old and having some trouble with the whole self-soothing thing. I'll read her some stories and then hold her to my chest and rock her. If I try to put her down drowsy but awake like recommended she gets very upset. I've tried to just put her in her crib carefully so she doesn't wake up but I know that's not going to work forever. If anyone has any suggestions, I would really appreciate hearing them.
I've tried the Ferber ["cry it out"] method [going in to comfort after 2 min, 5 min, 10 min, etc] earlier this week as recommended by my pediatrician and it worked initially after about 20 minutes but then she just woke up an hour later and really lost it when I tried to do it again and after like 40 min I just couldn't listen to it anymore and had to get her. :(
