You are an awesome mom & my heartstrings are tugged as well with the memories of those times. I promise it will get better!!!! p.s.even Dr. Wonderful gave in several times before allowing a whole 26 minutes---you rock!

Thanks for the play-by-play! We are trying to decide which method to start trying in the next couple of months; our son is only 4 months so a little young for true tough love but we;ve been easing him into his crib and trying to encourage sleep without the boob. It is good to be able to read about what other peole have tried and how it works, or doesn't, for them.

Thanks for the post. You are not alone! With so many (childless) experts out there to judge us (or more likely, our imposition of judgmentalism on others to interpret on our own), it's okay for us to simply trust ourselves. Whenever I'm feeling like a crappy dad, I remind myself of how many times I smile and hug and kiss my little boys each day, and how often I look into their eyes and say I love you, you know that? I really love you. Lucas will come through this. And so will you. I hope you had a productive night.

Oh man. I remember those nights!! We were battling ear infection after ear infection as well - so I couldn't tell what was really him just being fussy or another infection (we had 18 total). I do know that it DOES end. Our day care person says, "As long as they are in a safe place ie: crib, you can leave them be to sort it out and learn to put themselves to sleep".

Much easier said than done. I hope it is nearing its end - in a very good way!!

Lots and lots of sympathy. We had success with Ferber for one of our kids, but no luck whatsoever with the other. The first time I tried it on LG (who was the one for whom it was a success) he cried for an hour straight. I finally broke down and went into the room, and he threw his little arms around my neck. I felt like Teh Serial Killer Mom, for sure. But the waking six-times-a-night thing was just not sustainable for any of us.

I hope Lucas slept for you, and you didn't feel too awful about the experience.
