Hello! Sorry for the long post. This post is for no-cry method mummy's and daddy's. Don't want to upset anyone, just personal choice. My 6 month old never took to the moses basket & has a really strong desire to sleep on his tummy when not co-sleeping. Until now he has been co-sleeping with us (very carefully!). Recently we started taking more care to have a bedtime routine, and regularly let him experience daytime naps in his cot (but on his tummy while we watched him on camera). Yesterday the health visitor gave some tips and we had always said we'd make a good go at the cot at the 6 month mark. So last night was the first full night in his room... Bath, feed, 4 minutes music (while rocking), continued to rock and transferred him just as he fell asleep on to his front. I'm slowly working on transferring him sleepy but awake too. Later on, we turned him on his back ready to go to bed ourselves so he was more safe but he woke up shortly after. I was kipping next to his cot but still felt too frightened to leave him on his front. So each time he woke up I rocked him and put him back in on his back, he cried, I picked him up immediately, rocked, down (repeat) until he was shattered and wrapped him very snuggly in an open weave blanket and I gently wobbled/rocked him in his cot and 'shooshed' and the crying stopped. Eventually he slept but I had to repeat this each time he woke up (though it didnt take as long) and sometimes I did feed him. The snug blanket keeping his arms by his sides does seem to help him sleep on his back. He doesn't always eat much during the day so I don't want to hold food back from him. Anyway, I found the whole process really upsetting- I felt like there were a lot of tears for a no-cry method even though I was picking him up immediately or shooshing to comfort if I felt he would stop crying quickly. In your experience, should I repeat this tonight with a hope to have less protest from him?... or am I creating a new sleep association by wobbling and shooshing him to sleep? I just always feel so overwhelmed with information!! P.S he can roll both ways, but much less so front to back so that's why I don't feel confident leaving him like that.
