Ferber Method

Little Calvin has me wrapped around his little fat finger. He melts my heart, Kasey probably gets so sick of me always talking about what he did that day but Icant help it he's my little chunk ( I found out his weight is in the 95%).I always knew it would not be easy to let little Calvin cry it out. Today is day one and i could hardly stand it. There were at least two times I had to honestly keep myself from going to get him. Thirty minutes has never felt so long, the poor little guy broke my heart. I know this is for his better health I just hope there are not to many more days of this. After he finally feel asleep I just sat by his crib for a good fifteen minutes to make sure he was okay. It may have been harder on me than him. I am excited for him to be able to get the sleep he needs. As of right now he was in the habit of sleeping 15 minutes and then wanting to be up for a hour. We will see how this goes.

  1. I let B do the cry it out. I would cry half the time, too! The first night he cried just over 2 hours. The next 1hr 45 mins. The next 45...then 15...then 5. Now he doesn't cry when we put him down, and he's starting to sleep through the night more often than not. When they sleep better during the day they sleep better at night...sleep begets sleep. Just keep telling yourself that. It will get better...for both of you.
