Going to start sleep training with my 8 mth old, again. I'd like to transition her from bedsharing to sleeping in her crib. She has slept in her crib for naps, but only for 20-30 minutes. After a few days I give up because she is so sleep deprived I feel horrible! Also, after doing a lot of reading, I guess it's time to get rid of pacifier.. She wakes up all nite for it. I was also reading about some sleep training technique where u sit in room with baby, don't pick up, can pat and talk..so my questions are: do I keep at the sleep training regardless of her sleep deprivation? Do I take away the binky at the same time I start the sleep training? And if I sit with her til she falls asleep..and she cries, aren't I neglecting her if she sees me but won't pick her up?? Help!! (also, no negative comments either.. I've heard it all and read it all).
