when is the right time for cry it out and moving him to his own room?
I am a first time mom and i get a lot of advice. He is the fifth generation so I get a lot of old remedies. but the cry it out he is only 6 weeks old. when should that be started? also if we are cuddling with him he sleeps till 4am and back to bed in bassinet up at 2am and 4am and 6am so should i move him to his bed and let him cry it out till he is back asleep? except for 4am because thats always there
Cry it out shouldn't be attempted until a baby is at least 4 months old, but later is better. Your baby is only 6 weeks old, if you want to sleep with him in your bed, do it. I co-slept with my kids and loved it. They slept better and it was easier to handle nighttime feedings since we woke up together instead of me waking up to their crying through the monitor. I'm not a big fan of the cry it out method to begin with. Babies get scared and can feel abandoned if they are made to sleep in a crib by themselves.
