My 10 month old and I cosleep together in our guest bedroom (my husband snores LOUDLY and isn't into cosleeping). I don't really mind it, except I have a hard time unlatching and sometimes it takes up to an hour to do so. I've read the No Cry Sleep Solution SOOO many times, and tried each trick..no luck. My LO will have nothing to do with that "lightly hold their mouth closed" situation. She whips her head back and forth and wakes up every time I try.
My hubs is really on me about transitioning her to the crib. Does anyone have advice on how to deal with a split household when it comes to cosleeping and crying it out? I am 100% against CIO but I can feel that my husband is moments away from forcing me to do it. I would like to transition her to the crib relatively soon, if only to allow me to sleep a little better. My LO is an extremely light sleeper and wakes up every time I make a tiny move. I basically have to lay in bed, stiff as a board. My hips/shoulders are so mad at me! Also, we have a great bedtime routine; bath, books, etc, and she seems to do well with that. But she wakes up at 6am like clockwork (she also nurses 2-3 times each night)..any suggestions on how to get her to sleep longer too? I put her down at 7:30pm.
Also pt 2 - does anyone know anything about this technique? http://drjaygordon.com/attachment/sleeppattern.html It seems almost like a CIO except they're in bed with you....I'm confused and not sure if it would work.
