slumber bub ** Edit in red** Second edit in pink**
Has any one tried it? Is it worth the $$$, what is it exactly? My dd is 6m and pretty much nurses all night still, she wakes up every 2 hours (on a good night) She spends most the night cuddled up next to me nursing non stop. I wake up and put her back in her bed after a little while because she kicks and scratches in her sleep and she gets so hot snuggled up to me, I just can't sleep with her in bed with me for very long or i would just sleep topless and keep her in my bed till she gets better.
My dd is almost 7 months old and her doctor told me at her 6m check up that she doesn't need to eat at night any more that she wakes up out of habit instead of actual hunger. She is 14.5 lbs and in the 20th percentile for weight and 80th for everything else (if that helps). But he told me that I can start letting her cry it out at night and it would be easier to do that if I move her to her own room. She nurses all night long still, she is in our bed most the night because she is constantly nursing at night. The idea of having her in her own room at night alone makes me very nervous, let alone leaving her in there to cry it out. But I don't know what to do, I am just exhausted right now.
thank you all for your help, I am just going to post it up here instead of trying to answer each of you one by one.
I am just going to keep her in bed with me, it didn't feel right moving her to her room yet let alone just leaving her in there to cry. None of my kids have slept threw the night till they were at least 3. My son still wakes up some times, but I have never made any of them cio when they were so little. We kind of made my ds cry it out (sort of) when he was 2, he would wake up at like 2am to play. So I would get up and put him back in bed and tell him to go back to bed, this would result in him crying for like an hour every night. That lasted like a week and he finally quit, for the most part. We just moved and it has started his I am going to wake up and try to play around the house. We found him sound asleep in our doorway yesterday at like 3am.
So I am not a lazy parent for leaving her in bed with me and feeding her all night. Because as soon as I get around my mil she says "is that baby still in your guys bedroom?" and "you need to get the baby in her own room, she will sleep better" and everyone I know have been cio and sleep training their babies since they were like a month old or they had babies who just slept threw the night. I feel like she is way too little to be alone in her bed and she is so little still so I figure that's why she is eating so much. Plus she is so active during the day feeding her is the only time I get cuddles. She just wants to roll and jump around all day in her jumper.
