Healthy Sleep Habits, Traumatized Child

Okay so maybe I'm reading this wrong, or maybe there's a page missing from the copy I have, but does Weissbluth actually say to leave a baby in its crib for AN HOUR before going in to comfort? 'Cause that shit is just plain fucked up.

PS, that's only at naptime. At bedtime, you don't go in at all. I can't believe people do this.

Is the Dude having sleep issues? Logan is driving me crazy (I posted the nose snorkeling post the other day) and I think we are going to try the "sleep lady shuffle" starting on Sunday. Because, you know, we are selfishly wanting to stay out late at a wedding on Saturday. Certainly don't want to rope our friend into sleep training for us. Did you ever have to do anything with Perp?

That guy really made me sick. I'm against CIO, even though we were reduced to it with M out of desperation (and me falling asleep and driving off the road). We never left her alone for longer than 10 minutes, and if I'd known about the sleep lady shuffle then, I certainly would have gone that route instead.
