How Many Sleepless Nights Will There Be???
When I took Hudson to the doctor on Monday, Dr. Hubbard asked how Hudson was sleeping at night. I said, "He's not, he's up every 3 hours to eat." So the doctor advised me that it was time to teach Hudson to self-soothe, and to let him cry it out to learn to sleep through the night. Last night was our first attempt at this endeavor, and he cried for probably 5 or 6 hours. I am asking for any advice on how to get through period. Do I give him his binky when it falls out? Do I stand there and touch him until he falls back to sleep? Keep in mind Hudson's crib is in our room.
