Hi, everyone! I am having an awful time with getting my 9 month old son to sleep at night as well as getting him down for naps. It is frustrating because I keep getting scolded by his doctor and other parents. They always say, "A baby that old should already be sleeping through the night! You need to just cut the umbilical cord already." His doctor said he does not need night feedings, but I do not buy that. I'm sorry, but I am not going to starve my son so he sleeps. I tried not feeding him last night for the first time, but I ended up giving him a bottle because he was starving.
I guess what I am asking is when and how did you get your baby to sleep through the night? How did you get your baby on a schedule for naps also?
He is on an eating schedule and he has a good bedtime routine. I feel uncomfortable leaving him to cry. It's his way of communicating and I feel like he is telling me he needs something, whether it's a bottle or just cuddling. Thank you all in advance!!
