My baby is learning to fall asleep on his own and get himself back to sleep when he wakes up! It’s wonderful! Everyone told me that when I finally made the decision to let him “cry it out,” I would regret not doing it even sooner, and they were right.
Actually, I think now is actually just about the perfect time to train Baby Boy to sleep well. He knows how to get his fingers in his mouth when he wants them, and he can reach for and hold onto his lovey, so he is able to soothe himself better than he could have a month ago, when he couldn’t control his hand movements as much.
