My DS, now 5 months old, wakes at least 3 times in the night sometimes staying awake for 2 hours. It has become exhausting, especially since he doesn't take a long nap during the day. We are trying cry it out with him now in the middle of the night. We have gone in to pat his back (every 5 mins and gradually increasing intervals) and reassure him that its okay, but never pick him up. How long do you think is too long to let him cry? And if he falls asleep and wakes back up within the hour what do you do?
