My daughter is almost 9 months old. She used to sleep through the night but now she doesn't. I know i have her in a few bad habbits for sleeping so i know part of her not sleeping is my fault, sadly. Anyhow i have heard from a few moms that they swear by babywise. It works for them, worked for all their kids. Today is my first day putting my baby on this program. She first went down for her nap wonderfully but only slept right under an hr. So then she woke up, i thought she was done but she was still cranky so i did what the book said and put her back to bed (awake again) but then she cried and cried. How do you get past the crying, it hurts my little heart to hear her cry. How long should i let her cry? Shes sleeping now and i didn't give in. It took her about 15-20 mins. How long before she won't be so upset by nap/bed time.

Babywise is a sick sick book! The author is absolutely horrendous. His own grown children refuse to talk to him and almost every doctor that backed him backed away and removed their names from his atrocity that he calls a book. AAP advises against his teachings, nothing like having a religious man speak about something he has no training and no knowledge about, as well as CA CPS using that book as a red flag which leadsÂ to further investigating.
At 9 months baby is starting to get uncomfortable again and waking at night.Â It is growth spurt time and teething timeÂ (both areÂ very painful) and baby is in need of food and loving to get baby through such a trying time.Â There is a reason why you feel bad about leaving your baby to cry; as mothers we are built with a natural instinct to go to our children when they cry for good reason. Would you like to be left to cry when in pain, hunger or uncomfortable?
