I'm sure the answer is somewhere on this board, but I don't have the time to look, Alexa is about to wake. My baby is nearly 4 months old, and cannot/ will not go to sleep without a boob or bottle, while in my arms or lying beside me. She is only like this with me. The babysitter can get her to fall asleep easily with a big swing she has. But Alexa refuses the swing that we have. The second I try to put her down in her crib while she is asleep, she will wake up, stare at me for three seconds, pokes that bottom lip out and screams to the top of her lungs like I betrayed her. I've tried rocking her to sleep, I've tried rubbing her tummy while in the crib while crying... nothing works. In 2 more months someone is going to have to watch my baby for three weeks because my job is making me go to some sort of training. I'm scared whoever watches her won't get any sleep, and I don't want them to go through that. When is a good time to start the CIO Method... Or should I even do it?? Thanks.
