Well.... first night, our baby went to sleep after 45 minutes. Wife wanted to go a pick up the LO but I make her resist. Second night, LO slept in 25 minutes... third night 10 minutes... Today, our baby not only sleeps all night since he was 6 months old but, he doesn't cry at all when we put him to bed.
Mom is happier, baby is happier and therefore, I'm happier.
The method is not for everyone, and Ferber actually mentions it. The method has more chances of working if you stick to it, as painful as it is for the first nights.
I recommend this book to any parent with babies over 4 months.
This plan got him back on track within a week. We imposed a comforting and positive bedtime routine and firm limitations. My son learned that my wife and I are there if he needs us (through progressive waiting) but the skill of getting himself to sleep rests on him.
He is back to getting himself to sleep at bedtime and in the middle of the night. My son is tenacious and stubborn so you may even see improvements in your own child sooner.
The book itself gives a great insight into sleep patterns of children and adults. It allowed me to understand why he was upset during the night and why he woke so early in the morning.
The book also presents information and contingencies for head banging, bedwetting, night terrors or any other problem (or non-problem) your child may have.
Life is returning to normal (gradually :))
