11 months na si macky,i wanna rain him to sleep without hele kc malaki na siya par ihele,1 year old na next month(kahit ba 1 na baby niyo hinehele niyo padin?) saka train him not to fall asleep habang nag breastfeed sakin(kc i brush his teeth parang sayang lang kung mag mimilk padin sakin after brushing). possible kaya mommies? pano kaya? kahit may routine,parang kulang padin sa kanya pag walang hele or dede e.
i think it is possible kung gagamitin mo yung kay Ferber na method, yung iiwanan mag-isa hanggang makatulog...kahit mag iiyak sila di mo talaga pupuntahan hanggang makatulog sila. tapos meron din naman yung isa, i forgot who formulated it, cry-it-out method din, pero every once in a while magpapakita ka just to let him know na you did not leave him...kaya lang, personally, i'm against it...kasi etong age ng baby yung nandun sila sa trust vs. mistrust stage (Erikson), so they will eventually learn to sleep na walang hele, pero there are negative effects as they grow older..feeling nila, nineglect mo sila...Babies who are not securely attached to their mothers are less cooperativeand more aggressive in their interactions with their mothers. As they growolder, they become less competent and sympathetic with peers. They also exploretheir environment with less enthusiasm and persistence. http://web.cortland.edu/andersmd/ERIK/stage1.HTML
so you can check out Elizabeth Pantley's No Cry Sleep Solution, naiinis nga ako nawala ko yung book ko about it. Nagbibigay cia ng more effective ways of instilling routines which may still entail you sining for your little one, pero eventually he'll sleep alone. yung key niya lang sa research na un is, you do not force your child to sleep alone when he is not ready. super nice talaga!
And btw, accdg to dr.sears, sleeop training is not for breastfeeding mothers daw...http://www.askdrsears.com/html/7/T070700.asp
ang alam ko kasi, mas mabilis talaga sila magutom kasi breastmilk breaks down faster...read mo nlang yung article, kasi hindi na ako maciadong nag pay attention kasi hindi me nagbbreastfeed...
