My dd is almost 6 months old, the past 2 nights as soon as I lay her down in her bed she starts crying, or she'll sleep for 45 min. then wake up crying. I can't let her scream because her older sister sleeps in the next room and I don't want her to wake up. Any suggestions are welcomeAnswer Question

15 minutes then 20 minutes ahhhhhh!!! If CIO is not working if your child cries for more then 45 minutes, the limit CIO advocates state (while checking in on your child every 5 minutes), you are to stop the sleep training and try again another day. Also you are only suppose to keep it up for a few days to 1 week tops if the crying persists because your child is not ready and the method is NOT for them. I wish people would actually read about CIO before giving horrible information!!! At 6 months a child should not be left more then 3 minutes to cry when first laid down PER CIO ADVOCATES!!!! This is why I truly despise CIO. People have such a broad range of horrible advice and obviously have never read up on CIO.
I would first before doing anything else make sure baby does not have an ear infection which causes the behavior you are speaking about. If baby is ok try reading and implementing the No Cry Sleep Solution.
