  • no she normally has no problem going to sleep by herself unless daddy is here. then she cries til he goes in and gets her. but he isnt home and i have done every check to see if she was hungry or sick. or wet.

  • Well myself would be craving some water haha.
    if i were crying that long,...

    And maybe she wants company,,
    Most kids at 13 months old dont like going to bed.
    when their not sleepy ....but maybe mommy she doesnt feel good...or just wants to be snuggled,

    and of course she is spoiled ;o)

    mine too

  • Umm, 15 minutes ago. She needs you. I certainly dont enjoy crying myself to sleep. I dont think your little baby does either.

  • She has learned to cry until you come get her. When you let the baby cry until you can't take it anymore and then go get her, she has effectively learned that "eventually" you will take her out of there and she doesn't really have to learn to put herself to sleep. Quietly check in on her every ten or so minutes, but leave her in there. Instruct your husband to leave her in there when he is home, she needs to learn how to put herself to sleep.

  • You should have never left her crying in the first place.
    What purpose does it serve?
    Of course she's learned that when she cries you come get her- that's what babies are SUPPOSED to do, and that is what mommies are SUPPOSED to do. There is no reason in the world NOT to, unless you're on the crapper.. But seriously, I can't see how you'd be on there for half an hour.. You might want to see a doctor for that..

  • No, she doesn't need to "learn to put herself to sleep" through CIO, mommies need to learn how to do their jobs and TAKE CARE OF THEIR KIDS!!!!

    Personally I dont' know a single adult who still needs their mother to rock them to sleep.

  • Liyoness--
    I wrote this at 8:02 I wrote my last response to it at 8:08..then i went to get her and put her in bed with me. That is why I didnt delete or close t because I went to get her.
    Do you really think that by the time you looked at this 2hours later that she would still be in there crying?
    Some moms do the CIO i dont that is why after about 10-15 i would normally go get her but I didnt this time it took a little longer so sue me. But like i said Some moms do the CIO just like some moms Breastfeed and some Formula feed or Some Home Birth and some birth without meds and some got straight for a c-sec. Dont tell moms what theyNEED TO DO because none of those things are HARMFULL to a baby. IT is just how that mother does things.
