Default I'm so tired!

Ok, so the last 2 nights Shelby has CIO.
Last night DH was up so I don't know how long she cried but Sat night I know the 1st round was almost an hour. (DH just called and said it was 11:50 to after 2:30) This is killing me but I have got to sleep!

She is up on and off all night long at almost a year old. I don't feed her in the middle of the night she just wants some company. Any tips, suggestions, words of encouragement? She goes to bed fine but around 11 she is up and then it is ON for the rest of the night. I just hate it for her
but I keep telling myself that I will be a better mother for all 3 if I am not a walking zombie all the time. I think it is better to not even go in to her at all because once you do it gets worse.
Never had this with the boys. Garrett had a hard time going to sleep but once he did he was down for the night. Jake was a great sleeper. The sad thing is she is the most wonderful baby during the day. Such a sweet disposition.

but I had a horrible time with my daughter too. It was a nightmare but we did the CIO thing for 3 or 4 nights and after that she started sleeping for 10 or more hours straight. It sucks when you're going through it but honestly I think it was the best thing for her , me and my son at the time. I had to do this with my youngest son too but I didn't wait till he was as old and it went much faster.

Ahh Jennifer

It'll take 3-4 nights for sure-- we did CIO when the boys were about 7-8mos old.... night 2 was the worst....

tonight will be tough- but I bet Tomorrow night is easier-- babies NEED atleast 10-12 hrs of straight sleep at night....her routine now includes seeing you at night, and it's hard for her to change, but the end result for you and her will be worth it

Oh no.
I really hope that it doesn't take much longer to get her to sleep through the night. I wish I had some advice. But goodluck!
