need some advice from you lovely moms out there.... Breylan (8 months) will NOT sleep through the night, he has trouble falling asleep n lays in his bed n cries. When he is up you cant put him down or he cries and even if you can put him down you walk out of the room he cries. It would be one thing if it was every once in awhile or he just "fake" cried, but he throws fits like screams and shakes and kicks... any advice at all would sure b appreciated... love him to death but it isnt fun!

I personally believe in letting them cry it out. My son is now a year old, and started doing that around the same age, maybe even a little earlier. They start understanding that they will have you in the room shortly after throwing a temper tantrum like that, and then they take advantage of it. They also go through waves of separation anxiety around this age. I personally would just go into the room, make sure he was ok, no wet diaper or anything that should bother him, and I would tell him "it's bed-time, you have to go to sleep". Then I would walk out, and if he would cry, I would just let him cry it out. I used the Ferber-method, where you give them more and more time to cry it out before coming into the room again, and they eventually learn to soothe themselves. I don't think it's harsh because they need to learn to cope, or you will create a monster. Read about your options, choose from your own opinion and speak with the pediatrician. Babycenter.com is a great website that offers a variety of information on everything! Good luck!
