Moderators Kindness Posted September 2, 2007 Moderators Share Posted September 2, 2007 I like to let my boy know that I am there, by going in and giving him a kiss, giving him his stuffed animal, etc... but I don't usually pick him up unless it continues for a while and I think there might be something wrong. Generally that does not happen and he falls back asleep rather quickly.I don't like the idea of not going in at all. I want him to know that I am there, but I don't want him to depend on me to fall back asleep. Exactly. I thought my wife was a little over the top when she came up with the rule that Sean would never sleep with us in our bed. Several years later, while all of my friends struggle trying to get their children to sleep alone, we have yet to have a single night where sleeping in his own room has been an issue for Sean. I will be there first to admit that had there been any nights where "crying it out lasted" more than 3-5 minutes, I would have had a hard time with it, but that has never been the situation.
