I haven't been on here in a long time. My little guy has kept me very busy. He is 6 months old and my husband and I have had to bounce him to sleep since the day he was born. We recently started "sleep training" him using the least cry method. At first it seemed like such a natural way to help him learn to fall asleep by himself and it was working. Although he still cried a lot when falling asleep and of course it was very heartbreaking for both of us. After about a week he was falling asleep in less than 5 minutes. Now he seems to be regressing. Takiing sometimes an hour to fall asleep. I can't do this anymore. I am not the kind of mama that can listen to him cry, not even for 10 seconds. This method does not feel right to me at all, however I don't know what to do either. My son is so active and alert and no matter how tired he is will not go to sleep if he thinks he is going to miss something. Please help! My husband doesn't believe in co-sleeping and I am also uneasy about it. Does anyone have ideas? I want to do this in the most natural and gentle way possible, listening to my baby and not all the so called child sleep "experts". Thanks!
