I can't tell you how many people I know who's children either:
A) Slept all night long pretty early on with ZERO sleep training needed
B) Slept all night long after 3 days of sleep training
C) Parents feel like using "cry it out" was super cruel because they had to listen to their child cry for a whooping 5 minutes total before the child fell asleep
Here we are on week number three of doing this. BLAINE IS STILL WAKING UP 3 TIMES A NIGHT OR MORE AND CRYING FOR UP TO AN HOUR AND A HALF AT A TIME.
Is he hungry? No. Is he hurting? No. [I'm 100% sure of these due to some experimentation]. Is he stubborn? EXTREMELY.
My next child better be an angel at sleeping because I'm going to be a lot older, a lot more tired, odds are Blaine STILL won't be sleeping all night long by then, and I'll have about lost my mind.
