Help!Posted: January 18, 2010
(We’re working on getting internet in our apartment so I can actually blog. It’s just taking a while. Sorry.)
I have a problem. The Bwun still nurses to sleep. I am tired of it, and I’d really like for him to learn how to go to sleep on his own.
But I don’t know how to teach him. I need suggestions! Please, don’t tell me to let him cry. I have tried it. When I know he’s exhausted, I don’t mind putting him in his crib and letting him cry for 5 minutes or so. Any longer than that, an I not only start to feel guilty bit I get a killer headache.
From what I’ve heard, establishing a routine is crucial. Has it worked for you? Did your baby cry when you put him down, even if he knew it was bedtime and he was tired? I desperately want to figure this out. Help!
