The dreaded 30 minute mark!
Not sure if there is anyone else out there with this problem but my 4.5 month old DS always wakes up after 30 mins into his nap...like clockwork. So like my older son we did some sleep training, meaning we did very controlled crying (please no judgement) We did a nice soothing bedtime routine and then put him down awake and once he started to cry we'd go in every 5 mins to comfort him but no picking him up. He did extremely well. 1st night asleep in 54 mins and second night no crying at all. So now onto the problem. I always read and was told babies that wake up 30-45 mins after going to sleep were doing it because they didn't know how to fall asleep on their own. So now that my DS has put himself to sleep on his own shouldn't the 30 min mark thing go away??? Now mind you were only on day 2 of the sleep training so maybe it will take a bit longer for that naptime 30 min mark to go away. Another tidbit of info is we took the soother away when we did the sleep training because he was so dependant on it he would wake up every 15-60 mins all night long looking for it. It was more trouble than help.
Anyone have any advice or ideas about this 30 minute mark???
