I can't handle the Ferber method!

My 8 month old wakes up every 2-3 hours and it’s making me insane. Has anyone else failed at the Ferber method? I don’t know what to do.

Babywise is everything when it comes to putting your baby to bed! It’s a MUST READ. 1 Like

One thing that worked for me was staying with my son at bedtime and then only using the Ferber method for wakeups during the night. You could try that! 0 Likes

Have you read Babywise? I couldn’t handle the Ferber method either. Hearing my little girl crying was so hard. It’s seriously the best book for this. Worked wonders for all four of my kiddos! 0 Likes

I failed completely with my first child, but it seems to work wonders on my second child. I think it depends on their personalities! 0 Likes
