Anyone hear of this book Babywise? Someone from hubby's work recommended it to us and I have been trying it out for the last couple of days, but have some questions. The book basically is about how to get baby to sleep on their own without rocking, nursing, swinging, or using any props. So, I was wondering if anyone has had success with this or is it just a phase that baby goes through and will grow older and fall asleep on their own. I have given him 10min to cry and he hasn't fallen asleep for naps during the day and at night he falls asleep while nursing...
I guess my question is, if I keep the swinging, nursing, and rocking to sleep will he eventually grow out of it and fall asleep on his own?
Then...how have any of you gotten your LO to sleep longer at night, he sleeps one 4 hour stretch, followed by a 3 hour and then usually every 2 hours. The book is suppose to get him to sleep 7-8 hours by 8 weeks old...has anyone gotten their LO to sleep this long this early?
9/20- Dante has slept through the last two nights from about 10pm-4am. I have been doing the feed-wake-sleep method throughout the day for the most part. Sometimes he gets fussy or won't wake after his noon feeding so I will let him sleep and then there are times that he won't really nap so all in all it evens out between awake and sleep time during the day. That and Dad has been doing an amazing job at night with feeding him between 9-11 gives him a bath and a rocks him for a few minutes before laying him down awake so he falls asleep on his own. We shall see if this continues, but it seems to be working for now.
