I have a 5 1/2 month old boy. He is exclusively being breast fed and wakes every 2 hours at night. I don't know if this is habit or genuinely hungry, but as i'm not weaning him til 6 months i always try to feed him just incase. He can put himself to sleep.
At nap times he sleeps for ages in the car, but in his crib only for about 30 minutes. Today he slept for 30 mins and woke and i have decided to do controlled crying with him as i did for my daughter to see if he will go back to sleep. I keep going into him, but he has been crying for what seems like ages. It really worked with my daughter and she had a brilliant sleep routine because of it.
I feel like such an awful mother right now. I know he is so tired when he wakes from his 30 min naps and know he still needs to be asleep as he keeps rubbing his eyes.
Please can someone give me some advice or their own experiences to tell me what i'm doing will work.
