  • it usually just takes consistacy. Most babies are more than capable of sleeping on their own through the night, it's just the parents that usually freak out about it lol

  • Yay! :) - and ignore the stupid comment by anon. some people just have that "i'm better than you" thing going on, when they aren't really that great at all ;)

  • hey anon doesnt bother me at all. i tried everything else first! i felt like i was being super meanie to her but when i realized it only took 20 minutes or so and that she was just throwing a fit i was ok with it. now its down to less than 5 minutes and i dont feel bad at all......she doesnt even cry about going to bed anymore. after 4 nights i can just lay her down and she willingly goes to sleap in her bed..... its not mean! 9 months of a baby in my bed was enough for me!

  • Good for you! I agree with Zakysmommy - it's usually the parents, not the babies who hinder nighttime sleep.

  • "t's usually the parents, not the babies who hinder nighttime sleep. "

    Agreed. Glad the OP had success. Ferber was a failure here. What WORKED was letting mine sleep when HE would, wihtout me getting in the way of it.
