    He is not teething,sick or anything like that. He is well fed all day and gets cereal right before bedtime. I'm still nursing him and he doesn't want to eat when he wakes up at night he just cries until you pick him up. As soon as i pick him up he stops immediately.He has never slept for more then 5 hours only once. I'm exhausted & he is getting up 6x's a night and barely sleeps for more than 1 hour. I tried cry it out for about a week with him because my doctor said to & it didn't workat all. I did the controled method a few weeks later and let him cry for a 2,4,6 minutes no more than 8 minutes. It seemed to start working right away and he was sleeping longer strecthes but then after a week he started getting up again several times a night so after the second week i gave up from exhaustion. Does anyone know the jist of the No cry sleep solutions I don't have the time nor the energy to read the book. If someone could please just give me the basics so i can try it tonite.Please Help ME

  • Help all you smart Men out there Does anyone know why my snow thrower would stop running while in use?

    It was running just fine and than just died out. I know I am a blonde but I already made sure it wasn't out of gas. It is a Toro ccr 2450 and it is only a year old I have only used it twice this year and twice last winter. It ran fine in the morning but quit working while i was in the middle of using it in the evening. I know this is the Auto repair forum but I thought some of you smart guys out there may have some suggestions on what i can try before I take it in. Thanks everyone !!!

  • Cry it out Method-Does it work on a baby that is 10 months old & is standing up in the crib already?

    My son just won't sleep unless he is being held. i know I have created this needy habit. I tried letting him CIO a month ago and he cried longer and longer everday and then on the fourth night slept all the way through the night with no crying only to start the crying all over again on nights 5 6 and 7 at which point we gave up. He gets up every hour on the hour pretty much and won't stop crying until he gets picked up and then either nursed or rocked back to sleep and if I put him back down to quickly he stands up and is trying to climb out of the crib into my arms. Screaming and sobbing. I know he is not hungry at night or a diaper problem or teething. As soon as I pick him up it stops immediately. I am desperate and it is starting to affect my marriage not to mention our 2 1/2 old that sleeps in the next room. I am tired of sleeping in a chair holding him all night because he won't let me put him down. please help me I am desperate to try anything. Do i just lay him back down?

  • HELP my 9 month old son won't sleep please read all the details before you answer the question see below?

    My son just turned 9 months old and is still not sleeping thru the night. He gets up every hour which would be fine if i didn't have to go to work and have a 2 1/2 year old too! The longest he has ever slept was 4 1/2 hours. My peditritician said we have to let him cry it out. I always nurse my son to sleep and then put him in his crib sometimes he wakes up and cries a minute or 2 and sometimes he doesn't. Then he gets up about every hour to 50 minutes from then on all night long until 7am. We did try the cry it out method with our 1st child and he only cried a few minutes the first night 2 minutes the second night and then slept through the night after that but our 2nd son cried longer each day for the first 5 days and we couldn't continue on with it because it was not working with him. My peditrician said it may take up to 2 mths. I don't understand why. My ? is how long will a cry it out method take on a 9 mth old? All advice welcome and 10pts to best answer. Thanks for the help.

  • My son is seven months old I need help with sleep training I started last weekend the let cry method?

    Anyway its been over a week and he only slept through the night two nights in a row just this weekend and then last night he was crying non stop again and I finally had to go get him. How long does this take ?my Dr. told me only three days and recommended this torture... but it has been 10 days now. I have to give up this on this method because I really can't take it. I feel so bad for him. Just when I thought he wouldn't cry anymore he starts crying again last night.

    Anyone with experience on this please help .... how long or often did your baby cry and how many weeks or days did it take????? Ten points to anyone that can HELP PLEASE!!!

  • Help my 6 1/2 month old won't sleep any advice?

    He wakes up every hour on the hour...I am exhausted. He doesn't need to eat he just wants to be picked up and held and if I don't pick him up he screams so loud. He has never slept more than 4 hours straight. Even after he falls back to sleep he wakes up immediately and starts the whole agonizing process all over again. Has anyone else had this same problem?? I am willing to let him cry some but its hard because I have a 27 month old too and don't want him to wake up too.
