Can I just say that this isn't the first time I've tried to "train" a baby to lay off the nighttime nursing? I am no wuss when it comes to trying to mold a baby to my will. I understand that some crying is involved when trying to get a very little one convinced that at 21 pounds she is quite plump enough to go most of the night--from 10:30 p.m. til 5 a.m.--without nursing , dammit. Good ol' Ferberization worked for my first girl. Just a few nights of crying in her crib while we went in to reassure her that everything was o.k., we hadn't disappeared, we still loved her, etc, and she was good from then on. (Mostly.)
But THIS baby! THIS BABY! It's been an hour.and.a.half now of screaming and falling asleep, waking, me checking on her, screaming, then falling asleep. Is this the first night of this you ask? Oh, no. This is going on a week now, folks.
Screw you, Ferber.
