Sleep Training? Pt. 2

Since writting you last time about Sleep Training, the Hubs and I have tried The Ferber Method or Cry It Out Method. It FAILED. Horribly. Now for other parents it may work, I am not hear to judge you or tell you how to sleep train. But for our side of the story.

Not only we're we up hours at a time but when we'd finally decide to give her a bottle she sucked it down. So the Hubs and I we're sorely conviced that she really is hungry at night. We tried it we really did, but it just wasnt working.

Latley we've started trying to give her more formula at night to see if this helps. We've done 6 oz before and she woke up but didnt want another bottle, it was pretty much one of those habit things. Which we will figure out with her once we get her on a good amount of formula at night.

We tried 8 oz last night and she slept till 7 am! She usually sleeps till 8 or 8:30 so we gave her a 4 oz bottle, she ate and went back to sleep.

I couldnt believe how well she slept! I am so glad I didnt try the CIO method any longer because it wasnt clearly just a habit for her to wake up at night, she really was hungry. I am glad we listened to our brains on this one. Hopefully she'll continue to sleep through the night...if not be on the look out for Part 3.

Charlotte would wake me up around 5am to eat then go back to sleep until like 9. I think she was around Evelyn's age too. I don't think its bad when they're younger like that but we did let Charlotte cry it out when she was older. By then it was her binkey and she wouldn't always be able to find it. So it'll work out. It's all about doing what's best for you and your family anyway.
