Re: 5 month old bedtime routine
We did do Ferber during the night but I am lucky, my kids don't wake much after they are put down. I would think it is fine to have dh help at night to break the nursing at night habit. I would consider weight gain and be sure your lo is getting enough calories. Like I said, I didn't feed DD1 after about 4 mths but she was also 95 percentile for weight. Ferber is a choice and it was ours and that is just my opinion. I know it is not popular but I have many friends for who it has worked and I would do it again in a second. Especially after how easy it was with DD2. DD2 sleeps great, 8-8 at night and 2 nap of at least 1.5 hrs each, it is heaven!
