Suggestions!👶🏻

Hi fellow mommys! I have a question! My little boy is 9 months. We have just gotten him used to sleeping in the crib as opposed to a pack and play! My only problem is he get up so often throughout the night and it takes nearly an hour to get him back to sleep! Any suggestions? I’m one tired momma!

I’m a fan of allow crying 10-15 mins, then shush without turning on lights, leave, wait another 10-15, repeat shush, wait another 10-15, feed. We’ve never made it past shushing #2. My daughter almost 2 and son 3 months both sleep through the night and take several naps during the day. We use “Mom’s On Call” for schedule and sleep training. If you do what they say it works!

Thank you all so much! We have been doing the 10 to 15 min crying method and going In and quickly comforting and I can’t believe it but IT WORKS!!! It took about 4 days but he is sleeping through the night!!!!! You ladies are life savers!!!! I’m so thankful for all the kind words and encouragement!!! I feel human again! Haha 🙂

I hear ya! And I feel your pain! To be completely honest, the cry it out method works. It’s not easy, and it’s difficult to not go in and pick your little one up and comfort them. But truly is was the best thing we did for our (mom and dads) sanity! It only took about 2-3 nights and then I had full nights of sleep and a totally rested baby. 😊

I bought a comfy bean bag chair. I always keep the lights off when my baby gets up during the night so she doesn’t get confused. I offer her a bottle and that usually does the trick to put her back to bed. I did notice if my boyfriend goes in there 🤦🏻‍♀️ he’s turning in lights talking to her, walking around. Then she takes a while to go back to bed

Did you do any sleep training to get your little to sleep or through the night? If not your little may just need sleep training to learn how to self soothe. We started our little with sleep training at 4 months and thank our lucky stars every night!

How did you approach the sleep training? We’ve done it to help get him down at bedtime but I think have slacked during the night....we take him out and rock him...do you wait like 5 min then go back in?

Generally during the night unless she's screaming like she's in pain or something really wrong we would wait and watch the monitor for 10 min to see if she went back down. If she continued crying we would go in with the lights off, shush her (no talking), rub her belly (we always left her in the crib unless something was wrong) and leave again after 2 min. Our general rule was soothe for 2 min every 10-15 min. We also purchased a vibration machine for the bed and turn that on via Bluetooth if she's having trouble settling. If she continued crying I may warm up a little milk and give that once during a night, just to be sure she wasn't hungry. Generally after a few days she was completely sleeping in through the night or self soothing when she woke up.
