DS2 is 4.5 months old and a terrible sleeper. We know we need to teach him to go to sleep on his own. I’ve been ready the sleep lady shuffle book and we think we will try this. For now our goal is to get him going to sleep in his own. We will tackle the bazillion wakings once he is a bit older.

My question is do you just pick a day & start? Should we start on a day when he has napped good or does it matter?

He does have a bedtime routine. The only thing that will have to change is he either nurses/rocks to sleep.

Any tips/tricks/success stories?
