With all that we got going on, our jobs, kids, family and friends we have to remember to take our spouse off the back burner. In order for me to get some quality time with my hubs, I had to develop a night time routine for the boys. That’s when I finally broke and compromised on this Cry-It-Out method.
It’s really important that we have a schedule not only for the boys but for us so that we can enjoy each other, recoup and prepare for the next day. Once we got the kids night time routine set, by 9pm Ryan and I have time to kick back and relax for an in home Date Night!
Struggling with getting rest and having quality time with my husband I had to compromise on letting my little man cry it out. The pediatrician said it was time and plus hubby kept saying I was babying him. I took to Google and read how hundreds of moms did the cry it out method and found something I was willing to try.
Disclaimer: Please note this method was not used to ignore my babies while they cried. It was simply a method of sleep training my children. Some may call it a “Controlled CIO method”. Please use you’re best discretion when deciding to start CIO. For me I sensed that both of my boys were only using me (breastfeeding) to pacify themselves knowing that they were fully fed, changed and burped and ready for bed.
Ok here’s my CIO method.
