So I broke down and bought the book today. The baby whisperer ended up being too rigid for me to follow because we are on the go too much. This is my last resort to get Keating to sleep at night. I am about to pull out my hair!!!
He has a good stretch of sleep for 4-5 hours, but it never fails that he wakes up at 2am. From that point he wants to nurse all night, and not out of hunger. He just wants to be comforted. It is impossible to get him back to sleep and he ends up in our bed. Which is extremely dangerous and I hate doing that, but half delirious and not using my best judgment....thats where he sleeps.
So mamas, what do I do as far as letting him cry? I hate hearing him cry and always rush to pick him up, so this is going to be torture. I know he isnt hurt or sick when he cries, he is just a wee bit dramatic. The kid has a set of lungs that he LOVES to exercise. How long did you let yours cry before intervening? The book says it shouldnt take longer than 45 min... but that seems WAY too long to let a 7 week old baby cry.
