Sleep Training Tanush part 2

Its been about 10 days since we started sleep training Tanush and I must say he is doing remarkable well. March 14th was when I started and by march 16th, he figured out how to fall asleep on his own.

March 15:
Nap: Cried+whined for 7 mins
Afternoon: whined for 3 mins
Night: No crying/whining, just moved around the crib for 2 mins before falling asleep.

March 16:
Nap: moved for 3 mins before falling asleep
Afternoon: Moved for 5 mins, cried for 1 min
Night: No crying/moving/whining

Since last even now once in a while he cries but not longer than 2 mins. His night time feedings came down to 2-3 times a night (in a 11 hour night) vs 5-6 times.

A lot of people are against this method. I myself had mixed feelings about letting him cry even for a minute but it is for his good to be able to soothe himself back to sleep. He is getting much better rest by long stretches of sleep vs the umber of times he needed comfort from REM.
