Just did it for the first time. We have fallen into the trap of rocking him to sleep for the last couple of months and I have tremendous guilt about instilling bad sleeping habits and associations. Recently he has been really difficult to put down because he no longer stays asleep when you put him down. He only has 20-30 min catnaps and wakes up every 2 hours at night.

Thanks for the reply:)

My son is 5 months old (born two weeks late). So I did wake him up...didn't read your message until after! I didn't want to but I am so upset about messing up my child that I was really trying to do "what the book says" in the hopes that I will fix my many mistakes. This mama guilt is killing me!

So I kept him up until 11:30 and it took over an hour that time and he was a bit more agitated. He did fall asleep though and I feel good about not leaving his side or
