My ds had us up like every hour last night. He'll be a year on Wed. I think he just wanted to be held. Anyway I made the mistake of sleeping with him on the couch when he was sick last week. We tried to just let him CIO but it was so hard. Does anyone have any advice? Thanks!

I know it is hard but I just started the CIO method 2 months ago.. my son is 11 1/2 months now.. It took over 9 months of me getting up 4-5 times a night to wake up and do something.. I finally did it and it worked.. In a short time too.. about 1 week.. I love it.. He will still wake up sometimes but mostly sleep if all lights are off.. He is in a crib in my room but soon will be moving to his own room.. good luck

My son was a year old when I did CIO for the last and final time. I had tried to do it several times before but I could never handle hearing him cry. It got to the point where he would only sleep in our bed and the second we moved or got out of bed he was awake. Plus we wouldn't get a good nights sleep because he was all over the bed keeping us up. So I finally just did it and it was hard, but he eventually would stop crying and go to sleep and sleep all night. It took about a week before he stopped crying when I layed him down. I kept the same routine everynight, night time bath at 7:30, cup of milk, and then in bed no later than 8:30. Now he knows when I ask him if he is ready to go night night he walks over to the stairs and is ready to be taken up to bed. He lays down at 8:00 now and doesn't even make a sound and sleeps until about 9:00 a/m. It is very hard, but I suggest to making a good bedtime routine and just stick it out, it will be worth it in the long run. Good Luck!!!
