Swing..Sleep..Swing..Crib..Wake..Sleep..Wake..You Get The Picture
This is a question to all the moms out there. How do you get a 4 month old to fall asleep on his own without the use of a swing, without putting him in his crib to "cry it out"? That is my question. I do not mind putting him in his swing to fall asleep, it saves my arms! But once the transfer from the swing to the crib is complete, within 10 minutes he is up, usually being fussy. So I go in and give him his binky which calms him down, but forget it, if that binky falls out of his mouth it wakes him up again. This routine will go on for about 2-3 times and then by the last time he is out. My sister says I should do the Dr. Ferber method, but it is really hard for me to just put him in his crib and let him cry. Since he really does not cry a lot. So to all the moms out there, I need your advice on what has worked for you, what you might suggest, what you have heard works. I will take any advice on this. Gotta go...watching "So you think you can dance". Don't you just love these shows!
