Hi all,

I just finished night 9 of sleep training tonight on my 5mo and I’m questioning if it’s working and how long the sleep extinction burst should last. I feel so guilty and don’t know how much longer I can do this if things don’t improve. Here are the results so far, please let me know if they look normal.

Night 1: 20 mins
Night 2: Less than 30 seconds
Night 3: A few seconds
Night 4: 6 minutes
Night 5: 2 minutes
Night 6: 24 minutes
Night 7: 13 minutes
Night 8: 4 mins
Night 9: 23 minutes of hard crying

Tonight (night 9) was a disaster and I’m feeling so guilty and sad right now
