Last night was the 2nd night Hariz slept through the night without waking up for feeding! That's a record! FYI, Hariz's sleeping pattern has been very predictable. Ever since he was 2 month old, his sleeping pattern was waking up for every 2 hours to feed. I kept telling myself that he will sleep on his own without waking up in the middle of the night eventually but he's 6 month and half now. He should be sleeping through the night!
Anyways, I stumbled upon a blog of a mummy who did Cry-it-out method with her baby. Even though I've googled about this before but I dare not try it yet because I haven't really see or read real people doing it with their baby and works. Hats off to Mummylicious for doing the method and for the 1st time I feel like I had the strength to do it.
We started this method 2 nights ago on Sunday night (supposedly Saturday night but failed. I ended up picking Hariz up :P). A bit of the summary of what we did :
Night 1 (sunday) : At around 9.30pm Hariz fell asleep after I fed him. Slowly move him to his crib.Then I went downstair to watch tv and turn on the baby monitor. At 11pm, he woke up and cry. I didn't quickly go to him like I always did. So me and Wan just hear him cries. 1st cry was more like whimpering. after 5 minutes, he started to slow down. Then he stops for 2 second and cry again. This time more like calling for me. No more whimper. It's been going on for 15mins. So Wan went to check him up because he will cry even worse if it's me. After while, about 11.30pm, he was wide awake. So I bf him again until 12pm. Finally he sleeps until 5am. He wakes up and I feed him again because this time might be he is hungry. He went back to sleep at 5.20 and wakes up at 730am.
Night 2 (monday) : He sleeps at 9.30 pm after feeding. (i fed him mashed potato earlier every night and bf him before put him to bed). I went downstair and switch on baby monitor again. He didn't wake up until 12pm when me and Wan are already in the room. He cries for 5 minutes and went back to sleep. me and wan was like 'yesss!!!!' He did wake up at 2am but I just stay on my bed and wait. Then he stops crying after 30 seconds. and wake up at 5am. again 8 hours of sleep might leave him hungry so I bf him and he go back to sleep and wakes up at 7am.
