Hello All I am new to this Blog site... I am wondering if anyone has tried Scheduled night awakenings to fix lil one waking at the same time each night.. My LO is 8 months old 22lbs and he will sleep pretty darn good getting himself back to sleep during the night from 8 until 1:30 or 2ish.. He wakes up and then on bad nights will stay awake crying and fighting (trying to sit up or getting up on all fours). I feed him and sometimes he will go back to sleep quickly but other times he will continue to cry if I'm holding him or not. After this time he will tend to wake up a couple more times (sleep cycle pattern) until I finially just give up and get him up between 5:30 or 6am. At those times in the night he seems so frustrated that he isn't asleep.
He has slept in his crib in his room since he was 3 months old. He has never been much of a sleeper since he was born. Hated to be swaddled after a month of being home. We start nighttime routine at 7 and he's asleep on his own most nights in his crib without much to any crying or fussing.out of sleep deprivation and felt crazy we tried the Ferber method and it made things worse he just cried more going to sleep and during the night... so now when I cries I respond again like I used to and he is back to just having problems sleeping during the early moring hours..
Anywho I saw this technique of waking them before they awake to break the habit that has been formed at this time and was wondering if anyone had any information on the topic.
