I’m exhausted… Riley’s exhausted… I think we’ve called a truce. At least for the next few months. I’ve come to the conclusion that Riley may just be too young to try this method right now. I’d rather he fight going to sleep than only sleep for 20 minutes at a time and be totally exhausted and cranky.
Instead of the CIO method, I’m trying out the “pick up and put down” method. So far this seems to be working and napping his usually time between 1hr-2hr.
On another note, Riley has been having longer waking time. He’s more vocal now; lots of cooing and smiling.
