By the way, she dose nap really well in the crib. about 2-3 hrs per day.

And anyone who is pregnant with their 1st.....hear this advice...If your baby sleeps well in the crib and that is where you want to keep them sleeping NEVER put them in your bed with you. You wont believe how fast bad habits are formed!

Sorry, it has taken me so long to get back to you. I don't know why I didn't see the message sooner. I have been a bit down with a sinus infection-so I haven't been on my game. I apologize.

I have not heard of the book, so I cannot give you any advice there. If you are interested in the book itself, the best bet would be to go on amazon and look at the reviews there and see what the readers themselves say (that is what I do). For us, we use Dr. Weisbluths Health Sleep Habits, Happy Child. Whenever we have had a sleep problem, we go back to that book, and it literally solves it for us.

I have heard of this happening with co-sleeping (my friend had this happen--although not so suddenly as with your DD). Remind me, how old is your DD now? I can look in my book and see what it says about it for you.

No apologies nessisary! Sorry you weren't feeling well.

Thank you! that would be great! DD is 14 months old. The past few nights she has been waking around 3:30 am. I go in her room, lay on the floor and give her my hand. She then fall back to sleep and so do I. Belive it or not this is a huge improvement, however I still think the must be a better way. I have put a night light and a fan in her room for white noise wich I think has helped a bit.

On another note when is is you FET coming up soon? Maybe we will have our FET's together!

So I went to the age specific part of the book and I couldn't find anything, but I went back and found some info about co-sleeping and it talked about making the transition from bed to crib basically by moving gradually over a course of weeks and months (not days), and NOT doing CIO.

Basically, (and I am summing it up here) since DD is older, you could start with a PNP in your room and

:smileyhappy:Thank you so much for taking the time to look into this for me!

Funny, about a month ago put the mattress from the spare bedroom in her room for me to sleep on. I figured it would help build her confidence back up, to have me there. I took it out because everyone kept insisting that would make things worse. I am doing what my gut tells me from now on. I am happy to report things seem to be getting much better! *knock wood*.

I am going to pick up a copy of that book. I don't like the CIO method either. Not to say that I haven't used it. Its just not for us, so this book sounds like what we need. Thanks again
