OK I need some help from my mommy friends out there.. I have such a hard time letting Ryan cry it out! I totally believe in the Ferber method and everything in Babywise but I am such a whimp at it. I want to give my child the gift of being able to put himself to sleep but I just cant do it! We have a set bedtime routine- bath, massage, read a book, nurse, and cuddle. Then I put him down drowsy so he can drift peacefully to sleep. hahahahaha yeah right. He will just scream and scream without stopping. Then when I finally cave and go check on him hes dripping with sweat and has this horrible rash all around his eyes. So I will pat his belly and try to make him stop crying, this lasts a few minutes til hes back at it again. An hour of this will go by and then I just quit and rock him to a dead sleep. Its so hard on Brad, Ryan and me and I just dont know what to do. He WONT cry himself to sleep, hes gone on for an hour and a half before, he just gets so worked up he cant sleep. I NEED HELP!
