The Cry It Out Stage.

Post by Jeannette on Fri Jan 08, 2010 10:23 pm



It's the 4th day in a row that he won't go to bed. He is like WIDE-AWAKE. I put him in his crib for bedtime (because CMON...it's fricken 9:30!!!), and he's crying.

I do it in 10 minute interventions until he falls asleep.

Oh. My. Gosh.

Make it stop.

It really only took Mackenzie a few nights to start going to bed by herself.... but we didn't really start it until she was about 18 months..... we were/are big softies so I couldn't take the tears! Very Happy

Ah, I remember this stage. It was no fun. One thing I did realize though, was that Aubriana new that if she cried long enough (long than 10 minutes), one of us would eventually come back in to check on her. Smart little cookie So I did it in 10-minute intervals at first, and then I did it in 15, and then 20, and so on and so forth until finally she just doesn't put up a fuss at all when we put her to bed at 8 or 8:30. I did wait a few days before I elongated the interval, but it really seemed to work when I did that. We only had a few nights (not back to back though) where she would cry (albeit half-heartedly) for 20 minutes. It broke my heart each night she did, but she got better about going to bed fairly quickly Smile

At what age did everyone start the "Cry it out" sleeping? I think I might have to put my foot down with DH and start this with Natalee Sad

In all seriousness...about 4 months... But Wesson totally had a personality of his own from day 1 and I know when he's stepping on my toes. lol

If he was changed, fed, burped, totally taken care of...it never hurt to let him cry a few minutes. I tried my damndest not to rock him to sleep...

As he got older, I'd let the time of intervention go longer. At about 6 months, I'd wait about 10-15 minutes before going in. Now that he's older...ummm...he goes a while until he falls asleep.

Like my dad said..."Nobody died from crying." ROFL

Like my late gramma said..."The more you cry, the less you pee."

lol

If they are fed, clean, burped, fed, clean, etc then let them cry it out. Of course not at 2 weeks old or anything but towards 4 months they can cry it out.

I never did the cry it out thing. Connor sleeps in his bed till midnight-4am and them comes into our bed. We don't mind. Especially with Chris away.

I have been told that it works though. If you can get through it, yay! I am too much of a softie...

lol I can't imagine Reese sleeping in our bed unless he is just SICK. Even then he normally sleeps on the couch and I sleep on the loveseat or vice versa. There is barely room in our bed for me and John let alone Reese who likes to kick when he sleeps lol

My parents gave us their old bed. Its a king size water bed! But when Connor was first born and before we had the water bed, one of us would end up on the couch. I used to sleep on the couch with him a lot. lol

Its not a free flow one. I don't know all the right terms but it has basically a layer of foam in it so it is pretty much motionless. Just really really soft and warm. Its heated.

WE could be cry it out buddies keep each other sane... I am starting with Ashton (hopefully) tonight, he's 9 months old tomorrow, and I am really sort of exhausted from getting up 2 maybe 3 times every night to feed little shooter... so uhm.. wish me luck?? I wish you luck! If it gets real bad we can just go cry together!

I started putting the twins in the crib at 10 months for the first 10 months they slept in the living room with me in their boucey seats. But they were so small and I woke up every hour and a half to feed a baby. So finally they got away from eating at night once their weight stabilized and in the crib they went. I put a tv in there and played baby einstein for the first few mins and then I turn it off. Works like a charm. Lainey gets night terrors around midnight usually so I just stay up til then and if she has one I just wait til its over and rub her belly.
