Nathaniel is 6 months old, he is my 2nd and I don't do CIO. When he cries I get him. I did this with my oldest but he would self soothe by 5 months if I didn't get to him right away, like being in the car or I was in the shower. Not Nathaniel. Tonight we went to Walmart and on the way home he started fussing then full on crying. He refused to self soothe. He was overly tired because it took longer than planned at the store and we got caught in traffic. What can I do to help him self soothe in times I can't hold him?
Thanks for all the reassurance. We will just keep doing what we are doing and maybe one day he will self soothe, if not we will still survive.
